Why Track and Field?


Track and Field is a sport that enhances all of your athletic ability. If you hate to lose more than you like to win, track is for you! If you are an athlete, track and field is essential in helping you reach your highest athletic potential.

91% of the 1st round draft picks in the most recent NFL draft participated in track and field in high school. The benefits are not confined to football: soccer, swimming and basketball athletes would benefit greatly from participating in track and field. Track is often misunderstood- it isn’t simply running. There are strength, quickness and jumping components to Track and Field. There is also a wide range of events that cater to all types of athletes.
