Register for the 2018 =PR= Youth Track Team
For older runners (age 9-17) seeking a more serious training regimen and racing opportunities, the Youth Track Team is a great option. The session will meet weekly (weather permitting), beginning in early March and carrying forward to late May. Team members would also attend 2-3 local meets throughout the Spring, for which registration is included in the $175 team fee. The session will culminate in the optional participation in the USATF champs/Junior Olympics/AAU champs.
The Team program sessions will initially start at 4:15 PM and last roughly 60 minutes to allow participants to adjust and gradually build skills. After the Youth Track Program starts later in March, the Team program duration will be extended till 5:30 and possibly start earlier. The Team program includes more event specific coaching as well as some advice on training routines for other days of the week. We anticipate the initial group will be fairly small, enabling more athlete-specific attention than the standard Youth Track program. There will be no practice on Easter Sunday, April 1st.
NOTE: The Youth Track Team is only offered in the SPRING, following the outdoor track season. Athletes interested in continued progression should participate in the regular Youth Track Program -- coaches will challenge them appropriately.
