The Power of Cross Country and Track & Field in Developing Student Athletes

Building Strong Bodies and Minds

At Leesville Road High School, we believe that student athletes are capable of achieving greatness both on and off the track. Our Cross Country and Track & Field teams provide the perfect platform for students to develop their athletic skills while also enhancing their academic focus and involvement in the Leesville community.

Participating in Cross Country and Track & Field requires commitment, discipline, and hard work. Through regular training sessions, our athletes develop endurance, strength, and speed. These physical attributes not only contribute to their success on the track but also build a strong foundation for a healthy lifestyle.

Fostering Academic Excellence

We firmly believe that success in the classroom goes hand in hand with success on the track. Our coaches work closely with our student athletes to ensure they prioritize their academics and strike a balance between their sporting commitments and their studies.

Participating in Cross Country and Track & Field requires excellent time management skills, as athletes must juggle their training sessions, competitions, and homework. Our coaches instill in our athletes the importance of setting goals, staying organized, and maintaining a strong work ethic. These skills translate into the classroom, where our athletes consistently demonstrate their dedication and commitment to their studies.

A Sense of Community and Belonging

Being part of the Cross Country and Track & Field teams at Leesville Road High School means being part of a tight-knit community. Our athletes form strong bonds with their teammates and coaches, creating a supportive environment where everyone feels valued and encouraged.

Through team-building activities, community service projects, and regular team meetings, our athletes develop a sense of belonging and camaraderie. They learn the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership, which extend beyond the track and into all aspects of their lives.
