About Farragut Track & Field

Farragut High School Track & Field Brochure

The Farragut High School Track and Field program is a spring sport offered by the FHS athletic program and is sanctioned by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA). The official program begins in February and runs until the TSSAA State Track and Field Championships in May. 

Our program is built around four guiding principles:

  • Discipline: To motivate student-athletes to set goals, nurture individual strengths, techniques, and abilities and train hard to be the best they can be both on and off the track.

  • Perseverance: To encourage student-athletes to put forth a full effort in every workout, train and condition to maximize efficiency, increase speed, improve strength and develop both mentally and physically to reach their maximum potential in competitive situations.

  • Leadership: To create a student-centered learning environment where dedication and discipline to academics and athletics not only enhance the quality of the lives of student-athletes, but also the lives of those who come in contact with them. 

  • Teamwork: To unify every team member under the common goal of striving to reach his/her best at practice and at competitive meets so that each athlete can experience success as an individual, as a team and as a community.

FHS Track and Field Coaches are always looking for interested and talented FHS student-athletes to train and compete in our track and field program. Coaches provide training in three categories: track events (sprints/distance running), field events (throwing, jumping/vaulting), and multi-events (decathlon/pentathlon) which combine disciplines from both track and field. 

 

There are a variety of events which student-athletes can train to compete in at Farragut High School which are outlined below. If you are interested in trying out to participate in our program in one of these events, please contact Coach Chris Allison via email.
