2024 Season Info

About 2024 Season

Program Philosophy: The middle school track level program includes: sprints, distance events, long jump, high jump, shot put, discus, and relays. 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. 

Early in the season, all athletes will have been exposed to running workouts, starts/finishes, drills/strength for form, and relay exchanges in zones on the track. All athletes will be exposed to throws and standing broad jump and may have received an initial measurement in shot put and/or long jump. All athletes will have competed in a intrasquad time trial or colonial conference meet to receive a time in a race.

More About The Season/FAQ

Practice Schedule: Season practices will include a combination of practices at the middle school (2:55-3:45) or high school (3:30-4:30).  Students should wear supportive running shoes to prevent injuries.  Bring extra sweats to keep warm in the early part of the season. Bring a labeled or identifiable water bottle. If you are riding your bike to track practice or meets at the high school, lock up bicycles and leave valuables at home.

Meet Information: Meets are listed under the site "schedule" tab as well as on the coaches' schedule linked above. The team will compete in Colonial Conference dual meets. Events will include the 100m, 400m, 800m, 1600m, 4x100m, shot put, discus, long jump and high jump.  The season meets are listed on the "schedule" tab. All team members are invited to participate in our four home meets. 

Away meets will have a limited roster- details TBA closer to each meet.  Championship meets including Woodbury Relays, Haddonfield Invitational, and Colonial Conference Championships will all be a very limited roster - details TBA closer to the events. 

Team T-Shirts: New team members will receive a uniform (Cotton adult S, M, L sizing)  if they have not received one already.  Returning xc/track team members have already received the uniform. Additional shirts are available for team members who need a new shirt.

Additional Optional Gear Order: Back by popular demand, we will be running a team gear store.  This is not run as a team fundraiser at this time - just as a opportunity for much loved HMS Track/XC sweatshirts, long sleeve shirts, uniform t-shirts in sweat wicking fabric, singlets, etc in adult and youth sizing! We will open up a team store in late February to early March.
