What's the Goal?
To prepare kids for high school competition in track and field events through teaching proper technique, a healthy competitive mindset, and confidence.
How does it work? We provide different stations at every practice.
Distance (800M, 1500M, 3,000M)
Sprints (100M, 200M, 400M, hurdles)
Throws (shot put, javelin, and discus)
Jumps (high jump and long jump)
Agility (strength training for ALL athletes)
Athletes will choose their favorite disciplines and have time to practice two or three stations each day. Practices include warm-up, stretching, 25 minutes in their choice of three stations. We end with a cool down game and stretching. Athletes wanting to specialize in one area can spend two rotations in their favorite discipline and also go to the agility station for additional strength and injury prevention training.
Practice Schedule: April 1st-June 19th
