From the coach:

Track and field is a sport that has something for everyone.  There is a range of running events including sprints (100m, 200m), middle distance (400m, 800m) and the mile.  For those who like to jump far or high or over things, there is the long jump, the high jump, and the 100m hurdles.  Throwing events include the shot put, the discus, and the turbo javelin. The team will also compete in one or more relay event (4x100m, 4x400m, 4x800m) at most meets.

There will be a total of eight meets this season including the state championship in early June. All athletes will be allowed to compete in most meets, and transportation to and from the meets is provided. The team will practice Monday through Friday on the back field from 3:15 to 4:45 each day, with a few exceptions.  Athletes do not have to attend each practice (although they should attend as often as possible) and can always skip practice or leave early if necessary with prior permission or in case of illness.

Most practices will include a lengthy warm-up with dynamic movement and plyometrics, event-specific drills to improve technique, speed and endurance training, work on mental preparation, and lots of positive reinforcement.
