Sprint to Success


JUPITER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, JANUARY 2024 — I joined the Varsity Track team two years ago, and ever since, I’ve seen how Track has helped me grow.

In 2022 I joined the Track team at JCS, making it the first varsity sport I’ve competed in. Personally, I believe Track has many benefits for students, ranging from physical health to building friendships with teammates and opponents alike. Every sport boasts to be the best, with sports like Football having a bigger reach than Track, but this sport is unique. I think everyone should do a sport like Track because of the benefits that come with it. Some reasons for people to do Track include building strength and stamina, as well as getting the exercise that so many students need.

One thing that I really love about Track, is that it is an individual sport, which allows me to compete for myself and control the outcome of each event I compete in. Track is beneficial to students because it allows for physical growth, giving student athletes a chance to prepare for their main sport by conditioning during Track season. With a small team this year, there is always room for more people to try Track. So feel free to come out to tryouts this year. You may find a sport you like or just enjoy all the benefits that come with it.
