Welcome to Indoor Track !
Indoor track and field competitions are held in adapted gymnasiums, which can easily accommodate high jump competitions and short track events. The facilities bear similarities with their outdoor equivalents. Typically, a central area is surrounded by a 200-meter oval track with four to eight lanes. Some tracks are banked at the turns to allow athletes to run around the radius more comfortably. Sometimes, there is also a second running track going straight across the field area, parallel to the straights of the main circuit. This track is used for the short sprints and hurdle events.
Training & Conditioning Sessions
Today, many young athletes participate in multiple sports programs. Across all sports, flexibility, agility, strength, & speed (FASS) are the foundation of athletic success. Our winter program is designed for sprinters, runners, jumpers, & throwers seeking winter indoor competition as well as non-track athletes wanting to improve their FASS. It allows athletes to maintain their fitness level between seasons, work on their form, and stay fit.winter program is led by Coach Collins.
