The Competitive Season - Track 2013

Our track developmental meets are underway and The Competitive Season is coming soon!

What do we mean by "competitive?"  After all, in the developmental meets we compete against other teams each and every week.  

Well, the competitive season has prerequisites and qualifying standards.

So, the "pressure" increases a bit, but not too much.

During the competitive season the coaches don’t get any meaner or scarier than they already are.  Sure, the quality of competition and number of good runners will increase (so the competitive part is real) but we still want everyone to remember to have fun!

Finally, you are not required to compete, though we encourage you to do so!
