ABOUT THE TRACK CLUB

Track and Field is a sport where athletes can compete against themselves. Not every athlete will have the opportunity to run in the Olympics or on a National team, however, they will get a chance to improve and set personal best (P.B.) each time they race, jump, or throw.

 

Track and Field is primarily a mental sport where ATTITUDE defines success. Competing in Track and Field will give each student-athlete the opportunity to learn the skills to achieve those P.B’s in their chosen event(s). They will also learn how to reach their fullest potential through hard work, a positive mental attitude, self-motivation, dedication, consistency, discipline, and effort. Team members will realize that coaching decisions are made with the welfare of the team taking precedence over the desires of an individual team member.
