Learning to Plan

Living life like a ship with no sails or navigation is a dangerous way to live. Student-athletes on Franklin High School's Track Team are taught how to set personal goals both athletically and academically. Athletes develop a work ethic towards reaching goals with small achievements daily to obtain both long-term and short term goals.

  • Breaking the destination into small steps
  • Implementing a daily plan of action
  • How to avoid distractions
  • Tracking progress of goals

We teach athletes how to run with proper running technique.
