Learn a Track & Field Pre-Meet Warm-Up!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

West Hancock High School (Iowa) head track & field coach, Bob Sanger, has led his teams to four State Track & Field Championships. In this clip, you’ll see how Coach Sanger has his team warm up during a pre-meet practice, which he likes to differ from normal warm-ups to have a break in routine.

Pre-Meet Warm-Up

Drill Summary: For a pre-meet practice, Coach Sanger gives his senior captains the responsibility of leading the warm-up. After completing leg swings and hamstring pulls on a fence/wall, the seniors lead the entire team around the track for one lap. During the lap, the seniors choose 10-15 different stretching exercises to complete to help the team warm up.

This warm-up routine from coach Bob Sanger of West Hancock High School will help your athletes achieve success. Coach Sanger has been the track and field coach at West Hancock High School for over 40 years, and has won four state track and field team titles. The goal of the warmup is not just to prepare athletes for one event, but for overall conditioning, and serves a motivational process of bringing the entire team together for a positive mind-set before event work begins.

Coach Sanger’s warm-up routine is designed for all his track and field athletes. In smaller high schools, athletes may be required to compete in a variety of event areas. This warm-up is from the pre-meet day, with a competition scheduled the next day.
