MIDDLE SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD
The middle school track and field program is a 7-week program that will provide an opportunity to learn and compete in running and field events. The running events will range from 50 meters to 1600 meters, and will include hurdle events. The field events will include turbo javelin (rubber tip), shot put, discus, long jump and high jump.
This program will focus on strength, flexibility, endurance, technique and speed. All athletes will learn life long lessons for effective warm up/stretching practices, good running form and pacing. Athletes will be grouped by ability level to train on the Walpole high school track and surrounding fields. As athletes progress, they will be encouraged to compete in meets with other local middle school teams and/or local road races. More information on meets/races will be provided during the program. A t-shirt will be provided for competitions.

In the event of inclement weather that inhibits activity, you will be notified by email of that day's cancellation as early as possible. Every effort will be made to make up the missed class at the end of the program. During the winter, if Walpole Public School closes due to inclement weather, Recreation Department programs and classes will also be cancelled for the day.
Because the Recreation Department incurs expenses to hire staff, purchase supplies and materials, and contract other expenses in preparation of a program, the department cannot offer full refunds. Full credits may be issued. Partial refunds may be issued upon request, however a 20% administrative fee over the overall program cost will be deducted per registrant. The Recreation Department will not issue refunds for any credit card convenience fees incurred. No refunds or credits will be issued without 48 hours' notice prior to the start of the program.
If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please contact the Recreation Department at 508-660-6353 or directly at email@example.com.
