5/12/14 - Our lineup for tomorrow's Washingtonville Wizard Relay Invitational is all set! Please check it out tonight and email Coach Lewis if you foresee any problems. [BOYS LINEUP | GIRLS LINEUP] Based on limited availability due to the concert and the nature of this meet (relays), there are many athletes who are not attending this meet. Anyone who is attending and must also attend the band concert, please be sure that transportation is arranged. Anyone getting a ride with someone else's parent must have a note. Your last opportunity for a regular meet will be this Friday at Port Jervis.

On Tuesday, 5/13, we will be attending the Washingtonville Relay Invitational. There is a concert scheduled for Tuesday as well.  While this is usually a quick meet, we cannot guarantee being back in Goshen for the concert. Athletes who must attend the concert need to have transportation arranged to bring them back to CJH in time. In addition, anyone attending the concert should not be in any relays that occur late in the order of events (SMR, 4x200, 4x800). Please contact us ASAP if you believe that you may be invited to the invitational and have a conflict with the concert.

We have many goals for our athletes for the modified track & field season.  We want our athletes to have fun, but we also want our athletes to improve over the course of the season, learn how to compete in new events, develop themselves into competitive runners, and ultimately prepare for competition at the varsity level. 


In order for our athletes to achieve these goals, they must meet and exceed our expectations. To visit our complete rules and expectations page, click here.

Practice Information


March 17 - May 20:

Monday-Friday; 3:00-4:45pm


  1. Occasionally, we may need to cancel practice due to inclement weather.  Please listen to the announcements during the day and check the bulletin board outside of guidance. We will also post any cancellations or schedule changes here on our webpage.


All practices are mandatory!  If you miss more than three unexcused practices, you will be removed from the team.  In order for athletes to be eligible for a meet, they must attend a minimum of 12 practices.  


We will be doing a variety of workouts throughout the season.  These workouts include:  intervals, hills, plyometrics, sprinting, and distance.  We will also attempt to go up to GHS and use the track, when time permits. Coaches will provide advice and feedback in helping students choose different events, but athletes should self-evaluate and decide which events they prefer for meets.  


We expect student-athletes to work hard and push themselves during practice every day.  The only way to improve times and become better runners, is to put forth effort on a daily basis at practice. 


Athletes may experience minor aches and pains throughout the season --  this is normal.  If there are major aches and pains, please see a coach and/or a doctor (if pain persists).


Please arrange for transportation home between 4:45 and 5:00PM. If students cannot arrange for a ride home, there is a late bus available that leaves at approximately 5:05PM.


See above for more information (rules & expectations) regarding practices.



Meet Information


Our meets are typically held on weeknights and usually begin between 3:30 and 4:30PM. Depending on the location of the meet, we will leave Goshen around 2:30PM.  Meets can last anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on the number of schools competing and the size of the schools. 


We will allow athletes to sign up for events 2-3 days prior to the meet.  Athletes may sign up for 3 events total, but no more than 2 running events (2 running and 1 field or 2 field and 1 running).  We encourage athletes to try a variety events and we reserve the right to remove athletes from an event or switch them to a different event.  Certain more popular events will be capped off and preference may be given to 8th graders or those who have attended the most practices. The coaches will always decide who participates in relays. 

When we arrive at the meet site, athletes will drop off their belongings in one area, and then warm up as a team.  This includes a warm up lap around the track, stretching, and running drills. 


It is the athletes' responsibility to know the order of events and report to the officials prior to the event to check in. We will post and go over this information, but we cannot keep track of 100+ athletes and which events they are participating in once the meet has begun. 


Invitational meets are for a select number of athletes. Coaches will decide who attends invitational meets based on attendance, effort, attitude, and performance.
