CoEd Spring Track & Field
If you check under "Team Files" you will find suggested workouts for Distance, Short Sprints/Jumpers, and Long Sprinters/300m Hurdlers. We realize not all of you can get to a track every day. Many of the workouts could be done in a neighborhood by running the approximate distance or by running for the speed/time requested on the road or bike path. The key is get outside and do SOMETHING almost every day...and to push yourself hard. If we do get to resume the season, you will be very grateful you did these workouts.
Obviously hurdlers, you can't really hurdle right now...so you work on conditioning and do your hurdle stretches and motions over chairs, in the air, whatever to keep that flexibility up. Jumpers, the Sprint/Jumper workout has plyometric drills to do and there are others still posted back in the "Team Files" for Winter/Indoor track.
Again, don't get together with others to train. Sorry...but not a good idea. We really need to follow those social distancing protocols if we're going to have a chance to limit the impact of this. Hang in there!
UPDATE: Obviously we are in a holding pattern at this point. So, do not pay the team fund or complete the team forms until we hear if the season will resume.
Team Forms are available under the "Files" tab. Download the checklist and follow the directions.
Team Fund: We ask each FAMILY (so if you have siblings in track, it’s just one per family) to contribute $100 to our team fund. This fee pays for team meals before Wednesday night meets for every athlete, Gatorade, water, and snacks at meets, Senior gifts, dinner for all athletes at the Green & Gold meet, pre-district team dinner, coaches gifts, and the end of season banquet for all athletes and their families. This fund is run by our team parents…this year lead by Britt Ellinger. Here is the PayPal link for the team dues: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8mQCC372na If you would rather pay by check, there is a form in the team forms you can use. Please make it payable to “Langley Track Team”.

All athletes are required to have a uniform and ONE Langley Track warm-up or top (hoodie, jacket, travel warm-ups, quarter zip, etc.) to travel to meets in. The uniform includes the singlet (top) and all black shorts. You may elect to use your own all black shorts, however they may only have one logo less than 2.25 inches square on it.
