Track & Fitness Spring Season 2024

Track and Fitness Program Spring 2024

Open to Boys and Girls | Grades 2 - 8 | All levels of experience are welcome

PAL youth athletic programs are dedicated to enriching the lives of young people through track and field.

Our goal is to provide each athlete with an opportunity for personal achievement.

SHS Girls Track & Field - FCIAC Championship Team-PAL Alumni are Included

Program Description

The focus will be on general strength and fitness training in three phases: Strength capacity, general strength and power. This will be done by body weight training, cardio drills, and combinations of plyometrics all done in a group setting.

Our program Coach is Jesse McCray who is the Head Coach for Staples High School Girls Track and Field.
All participants will have the chance to interact with current members of Staples Track and Field athletes as they lead them through drills.

Since the inception of the program, several participants have been great contributors to the Staples High varsity program. Many have gone on to become FCIAC Conference champions, State Champions, and New Balance and Nike National Qualifiers.

For the older athletes that have a strong interest in track and field this is a great opportunity to be introduced to the drills that we use to develop our current high school athletes. For the younger athletes that are new to the activity the setting is low key and relaxed.

In May participants will have the opportunity to compete in developmental track meets at Waveny Park in New Canaan.
The meets are scheduled to be held on Wednesdays.  More information will be posted soon.  Stay tuned!
