Indoor Track & Field--

 


Philosophy

Our Track and Field program is designed to help student-athletes grow athletically, academically, emotionally, physically and socially. We expect the student-athletes to develop commitment, leadership, determination and friendships through practice and competition. Coaches in the track and field program are committed to helping the student-athletes achieve all that they can in their athletic pursuits by providing coaching in terms of training theory and technique, motivation generated by creating a vision of each athlete's potential and positively reinforcing that vision, and nurturing the enjoyment and love of the sport. The staff will focus on keeping runners healthy, developing strength and acquiring the necessary skills to reach their potential.
