The Indoor Track and Field program focuses on conditioning, strength, mobility and injury prevention through functional weight training, low impact movement in the pool, and multi-surface cardiovascular conditioning.
The team is made up of athletes participating in all year long track and field who are looking to improve their technique, fitness level and compete at the Indoor State Championships to multi-sport athletes who join to stay in shape and get ready for their respective outdoor sport seasons.
In 2019 our 4 x 800m relay team qualified for the PTFCA Indoor State Championships at Penn State. We also had #1 ranked freshman hurdler in PA.
The goal for 2020 is to keep on developing our young athletes and to qualify in multiple events for the Indoor State Championships
