Track & Field Spring Break Training

Track & Field members….here’s your Spring Break Training (sorry for the delay): track training – spring break 2019

It’s separated by sprinters and middle distance. Don’t worry if you can’t do it all. Even if you can try 2 workouts a week, it’ll help keep you in tuned.

First meet is Wednesday April 3rd (day 1)!  Events: 1500, 400, Girls Javelin, Girls Discuss, Boys Shot Put, Boys High Jump, Girls & Boys Long Jump.  See league meet schedule on the track & field page for approximate times.

We will have a quick team meeting in the main gym at lunch, Monday, April 1st. This is important as I need to know which athletes are attending the Wednesday meet. Boys HJ practice will run right after. Will do Long Jump and starts practice April 1st, after school.
