Register for the Youth Track Team
For older runners (age 8-17) seeking a more serious training regimen and racing opportunities, the Youth Track Team is a great way to enter competitive Track & Field while still keepin it fun. The session will meet weekly (weather permitting), beginning in early March and carrying forward to late May. Team members also have the opportunity to attend 3-4 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.
All Youth Track Team participants receive a team shirt and uniform, as well as special promotions at Potomac River Running Store.
Youth Track Team will begin Sunday, March 1 and practices will run through competition season, ending May 31. Practices will take place at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA.
The Team program sessions will be from 4-5 PM for the first two weeks, and then extend to 5:30 PM for the remainder of the program. The Team program includes more event specific coaching as well as some advice on training routines for other days of the week. The group is typicaly fairly small, enabling more athlete-specific attention than the standard Youth Track program. There will be no practice during spring break, on 4/5 or 4/12 (Easter Sunday).
NOTE: The Youth Track Team is only offered in the SPRING, during the outdoor track season. Athletes interested in continued progression should participate in the regular Youth Track Program -- coaches will challenge them appropriately.
