What: Track and Field is an incredible sport with an amazing community! Track and Field events consist of 100, 200, 400, 800, and 1600 meter races, as well as long jump, relays, and shot put. At practices, we will be preparing for both short distance and long distance! Practices can look different each day! Throughout the season, we will be working on our speed with fun sprints and relay workouts, working on our strength by running hills and doing core exercises, working on our endurance by running distance, and working on our fun by playing games of tag and capture the flag that still require you to run and move!

 

Who: 6th grade - 8th grade can compete in the district competitions, but our Track & Cross Country Team practices are open to all students interested as young as 4th grade in practicing with the team from 3-4pm on Mondays and Wednesdays with an optional long run on Fridays.

 

As we are a Middle School Team participating in a middle school league, the competitive meets are for those in "middle school" (6th to 8th grade, per the district's definition of middle school). If your child is younger than 6th grade and wants to train, please reach out to coach Alex directly.

 

We welcome ANY and ALL runners, no matter their abilities or experience. Whether you are someone new to running, someone looking for ways to stay healthy, or a seasoned runner, we want you to join our team!

MOUNTAIN BIKING

The Trailblazers’ promotes a team of healthy habits, self-confidence, leadership, hard work, and inclusivity. Among other achievements, Compass has won Spirit Awards in 2016, 2017, and 2018; Compass placed Third in the North Conference in 2016; and First in the Distance Challenge in 2020. The goal for a Trailblazer is not the podium; it's doing your best, and making it to the top of the trail to earn the exhilaration of the ride down.

Organized by High School students, parents, and staff in 2016, the Trailblazers compete in bike races organized by the Colorado High School Cycling League, which encompasses four regions in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Practices include a variety of terrain and accommodates a wide range of cycling abilities.

Who: The Trailblazers are the school club team of Compass Montessori High School in Golden but we also welcome student athletes from other area schools that don’t have their own teams. Eligible high school students in 9th - 12th grades can race in the CO League races AND we welcome 7th & 8th grade students to join us as a great and fun development opportunity for all practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school.

 

When: Riders register for the season with the league in mid-March. Team rides and competition begin in the summer and we race through the end of October each year.

 

Practice: 

Current practices are Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3:15 PM - 6:00 PM. Tuesdays we’ll meet at Tony Grampsas Park next to the Compass Golden Campus. Thursday rides will be announced each week by Coach Adam as the location will change week to week.

 

Race Season: The 2022 Colorado MTB League race schedule can be found on the event page here.

 

What do you need: All you need is a functioning geared mountain bike, helmet and safety equipment, and to get registered with the CO League. If you do not have a bike, but want to participate, we do have some resources for you, so please email Coach Adam and let him know.
