CoEd Middle School Track and Field
This year we will be offering our team uniforms for purchase through an online store!
By popular demand, the store will also be offering long sleeve tops and personalized bags!
The store will be open from February 20th - March 5th ONLY.
The HMS coaches will distribute orders when they arrive in March (anticipated arrival date is March 25th). All orders arrive from the company to the middle school pre-packaged for the student and will be passed out by the coaches.
You may also head directly to the store @ shop.burkesports.com and use code: hmstrack
The online store will offer:
*HMS Team Uniform: short sleeve top (adult and youth sizing)
*Optional: long sleeve top (adult and youth sizing), long sleeve half zip (adult, women, and youth sizing), and team sweatshirt (with personalization included at check out)
A team meeting will be held on Thursday 2/20 immediately after school in the gym to pass out flyers and more information about uniforms. The online store offers convenient ordering and distribution of orders as well as more availability of sizing for our team members. Until shirt orders arrive, team members will be asked to wear a black t-shirt or Haddonfield gear as a competition top.
Interest Meeting Date- Thursday February 20th @ 2:50 in the Middle School Gym **This is an interest meeting to hear team details from the coaches. Follow the links and directions below to ensure proper sign-up.
Program Philosophy: The middle school track level program includes: sprints, distance events, long jump, high jump, shot put, and discus. The program exposes the athletes to the various events and training principles. The team members will be guided to find events that match their interests and potential. They will be challenged to steadily progress in their training and improve in their performances. The students should find their experience successful and fun! With a team of close to 200 athletes, we will be utilizing grade/event specific practices to best meet the needs of our athletes.
