The Spring Track & Field program is an in-town program that focuses on teaching our youth both the field skills and the techniques for running sprints, relays and distance. The program is a member of USATF and our athletes will compete in various local and state meets based on the individual’s capability and advancement.
Our Girls Lacrosse Program runs in the spring and has had great success in its first few years. The program participates in the New Jersey Girls Lacrosse Association (NJGLA) and follows the guidelines for sportsmanship and coaches training set forth by the association. The Girls game is fast paced and exciting, we offer instructional level, U9, U11 and U13 divisions. The games are played at the Triangle Complex. We generally practice 2 days per week and have 2-3 games per week during the season.
Our fall field hockey program is in its third, successful year. We are EXTREMELY proud of all of our players, coaches, jr coaches and parents who have all made this program what it is today! Our mission is to instruct, encourage and enhance the skills of all of our players Grades K-6, moving them into their continued success in middle and high school.
Our Mini Chix (K-1) clinic is run weekly by seasoned coaches and high school players. They work on basic stick work, safety awareness and move into game-play situations during the season.
Our Little Stix (grades 2-4) and Junior Stix (grades 5-6) participate in the NJPA instructional league, playing other teams in the league that have the same skill set they attend practice twice a week with games on Sundays, all at Mr C East, Woodfield Park.
Our coaches have all taken the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Program and must pass background checks. Football coaches and players are members of USA Football and the coaches must pass basic knowledge tests in order to coach at any level. The JR Skyland conference employs NFHS certified football officials and EMT at each event.
