Message from Coach

Athletes & Parents,

We are excited to launch our 2024 Generals Track and Field season!  Although we do not officially begin until February 26, we already have a huge group participating in winter conditioning.  We are excited to see such dedication from so many athletes.   We invite you to join us, even those of you new to Grant Track and Field.

We encourage a regular workout rhythm of at least 3 days per week.  Building your strength and speed and mobility through the pre season makes a massive difference in your capacity when we officially begin our season.  Furthermore, the athleticism you gain will help your performance in every other sport.  The athletes who have seen the greatest growth and improvement are those who have committed to the pre-season conditioning.  We want you to be in that group.  

We hold workouts 4 days per week, Monday through Thursday starting at 3:50 p.m.   

Mondays and Thursdays we typically end at 6.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays we usually end at 5:30 p.m. 

Join the Team:  to practice, you need a physical within the last two years and completed online forms.  Sing up on FamilyID.   Email me with any questions.

Those of you new to T&F:  We realize you may not yet know which event group to join.  Talk to me and we can decide the best place for you to join.
