Girls’ and Boys’ Track and Field
Grades 6-12 (Co-op with NLA)
The head coach is from NLA. See here for a letter from her about the team. The letter is tailored to NLA students, because we will be doing a co-op with NLA. You will still register through LILA FeePay and LILA RSchool Today. You also should still email the coach (email address above) with your student’s name and grade, your name, and your email address ASAP. NOTE: Spring 2018 registration is now closed.
We are looking for one more assistant coach with specialties in hurdles, sprinting, or throwing.
Students will participate on a competitive Track and Field team where they will learn the technique of many track and field events. Although most track and field events are individual (except for relays), the athletes will work together to create an atmosphere that will promote dedication, persistence, trust, and hard work, which will be the driving force to establishing a successful team, on and off the track.
Begins: Tuesday, March 20
Monday-Friday 2:30-3:45 at NLA Upper School
We typically go to the old cinder track behind the CLC and Forest Lake Elementary. You must officially register your student through the RSchool Today site and paid on FeePay before the studentc can practice.
Note: For the first two weeks, practices will be held indoors at NLA Upper Schools (weather pending) and will be from 2:30-3:30.
Most meets will be for 7th-12th graders, but we will have a few middle school meets as well. The 6th graders will attend practices with the 7th-12th graders.
