Track and Field Recruits

Thanks for your interest in Alabama track & field! Below you will find our walk-on standards as well as a general scholarship guideline for potential recruits. The below standards are a guide and should not be regarded as guarantees as our coaching staff makes individual assessments of each recruit. We have the NCAA maximum 12.6 scholarships for men and 18.0 for women to fill all of the track & field events. Therefore, we have to balance these numbers to cover the entire track & field team. In addition, please know that we cannot respond to email correspondence prior to September of your junior year, and we cannot make calls before July 1st following the completion of your junior year. If you have hit the standards below, please email us, and we will send you a questionnaire. Thanks again for your interest in the University of Alabama.

Roll Tide,
Head Coach Dan Waters
