The goal of the Spotswood Girls Track & Field program is to provide an athlete-centered learning environment that helps each individual develop the student-athlete's physiological, mental, social and intellectual needs. Complimentary to the individual and program development, is the commitment to foster the life skills of integrity, sportsmanship, discipline, responsibility, humility, commitment, respect and teamwork, as well as promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our program will be inclusive and expansive for all class levels. The program will be seamless between Varsity, JV and freshman levels as respects to practice and event plan development.
Fundamentals will be drilled at all levels. Practices will be designed to reinforce fundamentals and create a positive learning environment. Training will simulate meet situations at all times. Physical conditioning will be a priority at all levels, at all times.
At each level, the good of the entire program is valued as well as the needs of the individual. Our coaching staff will motivate the athletes with positive reinforcement, engage in open communication and demonstrate predictable behavior while also work to instill valuable character traits such as unselfishness, a solid work ethic and the ability for a individual to see beyond her own success.
