With the arrival of a new field house at Deerfield Academy, Bement now has the opportunity to offer a new sports program - winter track. On a daily basis, we will focus on building an aerobic foundation, honing our speed, and getting stronger through drills, plyometrics, and core work. Our squad will prepare for “all-comers” track meets in the early winter months, and be ready to race in February in whichever events we choose, from 55 meters to 3,000.
