LEGACY PREP CANADA TRACK & FIELD SCHOLARSHIP ACADEMY

Legacy Prep believes track and field is a special sport where athletes have the opportunity to compete against themselves. 

 

Not every athlete will have the opportunity to fulfill a dream of making a National Program but will have a chance to get a quality education and receive a scholarship via Canada or the United States. Every athlete will get a chance to improve and set new personal best P.B.) each time they race, jump, vault, or throw. Track and Field is largely a mental sport where your attitude defines success.  

Competing in Track and Field will give each student-athlete the opportunity to learn the skills of his or her event(s). They will also learn how to apply themselves to their fullest potential through hard work, the correct attitude, self-motivation, dedication, consistency, discipline, and effort. Team members must realize that coaches' decisions are made with the welfare of the team taking precedence over the desires of any individual team member.

 

The coaching staff has set strategic objectives while maintaining the vision and purpose of the Track and Field Program for the season. Being a member of Legacy Prep's Track and Field Scholarship Academy is a privilege and a worthwhile endeavour that will create lifelong lessons for each individual athlete.
