There is no bench in track and field. Every athlete has a chance to compete in an effort to help their team win. A typical track meet includes 18 events, at least one event for every type of athlete. We will have strength in numbers. Every type of person, student and athlete is wanted and needed on this team.
The Norcross Track and Field program is built on academic, discipline, attitude and effort. Our athletes will set goals, work hard, and measure the price of success daily. Our mantra will be Win Today, track like life there are winners and losers; we will push our student-athletes to focus on the daily win rather than the long term win.
Track and Field is mistakenly known as an individual sport. Our program will focus on the Team concept. We will open every practice with a ‘Team 800’. Every student-athlete’s points are entered in the teams total meet score, and therefore is vital to the overall success of our team. The experience of shared success is always better then that of individual success.
Our track and field staff will enter every practice and meet with the approach that someday our program will win a Team State Championship. On top of being knowledgeable, our staff will be passionate and enthusiastic about track and field and teaching our athletes. The Norcross Track and Field staff will be organized and motivated. We will place athletes in the best position possible to foster individual and team success. We will build depth by developing 6-8 athletes in every event. The core and strength of our team will be in the 400 and 800 Meter races. We will be technically sound in all other events and our team will train hard.
Our expectations for the athletes will include a willingness to learn and compete in multiple events. Our athletes will experience the sacrifice necessary to be successful in the classroom, community, and on the track.
Our program will remain humble and represent the Norcross community with the utmost respect and integrity. It's amazing what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit. Leadership starts with the coaches and ends with the athletes. Our athletes will learn to be leaders among their peers.
