Vanier coach Daniel Atkins offers an important tip for track and field footwear -- wearing shoes.

High school track and field season might have been cancelled along with the rest of the in-person school year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but that's not stopping at least one school having a little bit of fun with the whole mess.

Vanier teacher Samantha Douglas recently posted a video on YouTube showing just what students could have expected from track season in 2020.

Featuring Vanier coaches and students, the result is as hilarious as it is a fairly accurate representation of what happens at Gutheridge Field in any given May and June. From proper footwear -- just put your foot in a shoe, good to go -- to coaches encouraging struggling athletes, dealing with the long jump pits, wrangling competitors to their events and yes, even the thrill of victory, sort of.

And sunscreen, remember your sunscreen.
