Philosophy Plan o We have a plan in place with an eye on peaking at the end of the season. Every workout, lift, stretch, and video session is done with an eye towards maximizing the potential of every athlete. We will be working with each of our athletes to help them set goals and create a plan to reach their goals. Positive o Each athlete is part of the McFarland Track and family – the “Long Blue Line.” We’re going to do everything we can to encourage them to achieve not just on the track but in school and as members of the McFarland community. Success o Track is unique in that each athlete can experience measureable success. For some athletes success will involve competing at the state meet, while for others it will be running a PR in a JV meet. We will create an environment where all athletes can experience success. Communication Our most important responsibility is to clearly communicate with athletes and parents to make certain we are all working together toward common goals.
