Competitive Track & Field 5th-8th Grade
Season: Late March – end of May
Practices Begin: Mid – March
League: MQS competes against other area Catholic grade schools
Running: 100 meter, 200 meter and 400 meter sprints and the 800 meter and 1600 meter middle-distance races.

Practices are varied and designed to train athletes in all aspects of Track and Field. We’ll always run, but we’ll also practice jumping, throwing, passing batons and starting from blocks. We use medicine balls, parachutes (for running, not jumping), agility ladders and other tools to keep practices interesting.
There is a parental commitment to help run our all day outdoor track meet and concessions in early May.
