Indoor Track

Registration for Indoor Track is from September until the end of November. The season lasts from the first week of December until the middle of March. Practices will be held 3 times a week indoors at the West Warwick indoor track. Indoor track is a hybrid season as we combine the elements of the rec league along with the elements of the racing team. Due to the restriction of practice sites and times during the winter, the number of runners that can register may be limited. 

Events offered are 55 meter, 55 meter hurdles, 200 meter, 400 meter, 800 meter,  and the 1500 meter for running. In the field events it is the shot put, high jump, and long jump.

The team can compete in 2-4 meets over the course of the season. YMCA meets, NE Indoor Classic and the USATF Youth Meet, which all take place in Massachusetts and Providence. There are also the Hershey/USATF Indoor Championship Meets, which requires a USATF membership and for the second consecutive year, travel to the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex in Staten Island.

Northeast Indoor Classic:

​2016-​Finished 13th out of 44 teams.

2017-Finished 9th out of 35 teams.
