Preparing Boys for Life.

Varsity Winter Track

The Haverford School winter track


As one of the few teams at Haverford that competes against public and private schools across the state, the winter track program works to not only make an impact on the local scene but also at the statewide level. The team races indoors but trains outdoors all winter long, which is a primary reason for the team's success over the last few years. To be a winter trackman does not require speed, though that is always a nice bonus. What we are looking for is toughness, determination, and stamina. The team is composed of people from all athletic backgrounds; many of the boys use the training during the season to better prepare them for their spring sports, and when they compete in the meets, they realize how fun it can be. Ultimately, the main goal of the winter track program is to make the boys better than they were at the beginning of the season.
