I would be curious to know which events you plan on competing in. I was part of my high school track team, but I was a thrower not a runner, so the adaptations I used were different then a runner or a jumper would find helpful. Generally speaking,I used cited guide when running and sometimes my guide dog The year I had him. I ran during practices of course, but was not competitively running during meats so I wasn’t super picky about the guide. I also found it helpful to sort of partner with someone for warm-ups and workouts, so that they could help explain the visual aspects that someone else might be demonstrating.

I was also a person who threw shotput, and with that event I would have someone clap in the direction that I was meant to throw the ball. I would think that discus could be accomplished in the same way. And alternative would be to use some sort of sound device such as a beeping box instead of someone clapping. I will say that with any accommodation you ask for, you will need to prove that it is absolutely necessary and will not give you an unfair advantage.

>> Hey Abby,
>> I was a part of my school's cross country team my freshmen year, and based on my experience with running in general the running guide and a tether seems to be the most standard way for adaptation. If I may ask, what event will you mostly be participating? You've specifically mentioned track team but I know various sporting events such as long jump/high jump etc falls under the track and field branch. As a tip, know your running pace when searching for your running guide. Seeking someone that's similar or slightly faster guide could be advantageous for your sport career. My main issue was that the guide that I was provided with had slightly slower pace than me and that slowed me down later towards the xc season.
