Track and Field

Track and Field

Our inclusive and supportive team culture has helped our Upper School team grow to over 50 student athletes – one of the largest co-ed teams in the Emerald City League. Our team of coaches helps each individual find events in which they can be the most successful and have the most fun.

The Northwest School offers track and field to 7th through 12th graders. The sport gives students the opportunity to run, jump, throw, and/or hurdle and we encourage students of all skill levels and experience to join.

Our coaching staff strives to help our student athletes learn how to be healthy in other parts of their lives so they can be healthy and successful in track and field as well. We actively cultivate a close, supportive culture led by a team of dedicated coaches and student leaders.

For more information please contact Head Coach Cletus Coffey.
