Spring Track & Field

2023 Season 

Days: Mondays and Fridays 

Dates: March 20th – May 19th 

Location: Kehler Stadium (Westfield) 

Registration will open by Feb. 1st. 

Traditionally in the Spring, we offer all track and field events on a track. This Spring we are offering three options - Distance, Sprints, and Throws (javelin, shot, and discus).  Long jump and hurdles will be added during the season.  All athletes are offered the option of participating in one of the scheduled meets.  Competitive athletes are encouraged to attend the scheduled meets and compete in the USATF Junior Olympic Meet.  More than 250 Flyers participated last fall with qualifiers for the USATF state, regional, and national championship meets. 

Athletes will be taught the fundamentals, techniques, and skills of track & field running, jumping, and throwing events. More experienced athletes will build on the fundamental skills through conditioning and in-depth training for their desired events. 

Wednesday’s practices are available for those who will be participating in meets from 6:30-8pm at Kehler stadium.  

Hurdles and Long Jump will be offered on average once a week during the season. An email will be sent out as to when they will begin and what days they will be on.
