Saddle Brook Track and Field
Comissioner: Dawn Stewart
Mission: The mission of the Saddle Brook Jr. Track team is to nurture and develop track, running, race-walking, jumping & throwing skills in a competitive environment and to promote team spirit and respect of others on the track and off. We will be competing within the New Jersey Striders Track & Field Club (NJS), which consists of 16 Teams. Our meets are contested in April, May & June, and are developmental in nature. We compete in New Jersey because of easy accessibility, and it offers a program that is second to none.
Goals: The number one goal of this program is to make the sport of track & field enjoyable for the athletes and their parents. We will encourage the athletes to learn to appreciate their individual effort, and their measure of success. Our secondary goal is to teach them the fundamentals of the sport, to develop specific skills, and give them a chance to learn to compete in all events or specialize in one or more. We hope to encourage each athlete to adopt a fitness regimen, and to enjoy a sport they can compete in throughout their lives.
