Track and Field
    Track and Field Philosophy
•   All athletes 7-12 are on the track at the same time for practice.

•   Our goal is to develop the overall athlete. We work on
    coordination, agility, strength, flexibility, and speed.

•   High school athletes will spend time in the weight room.
    New for 2010: Football athletes have the option to lift with Coach
    Little as their strength coach to maintain football training.

•   Junior High athletes will use other methods of strengthening the core.

• Invitational vs. Dual & Tri-Meets
      Line-Ups Posted
• Hectic Schedules ~ e-mail to communicate
  who is where/when
• Regular attendance at practice. If gone the
  night before a meet, it is difficult to put final
  touches on relays, etc…
           T&F Opportunities
•   Nationals
•   Knight Runners
•   Camps
•   Local Meets @ Winton Woods
• Regular Attendance is expected at all practices and meets.
      ~ Keeps Injuries Away
      ~ Keeps Athlete Informed

• If there is a conflict, coaches should know well in advance.
  Communication is the key! We know some athletes are
  juggling schedules with two spring sports. Our rule of thumb
  is that a competition always takes precedence over practice.

• If your child needs to leave practice early, he/she needs to be
  prepared to have items at the track. We can not stop practice
  for a coach to unlock the locker rooms.
