Kings Track and Field 2010 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.

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. Track and Field Events (Something for EVERYONE!)
