OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD

OUTDOOR SEASON

The outdoor program takes place during the spring and summer months and are for both beginners and the more advanced track and field competitors. Our goal is to introduce the fundamentals of running, throwing, jumping and race walking to beginners and develop and refine the more experienced athletes overall skills in track and filed events.  Everyone participates because there are no benches as each athlete will have an opportunity to train and compete in all aspects of track and field.

OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD PROGRAM INFORMATION
The 2017 outdoor program starts April 22nd through the first week in August.  We participate in several competitions on the local, regional, and national levels. Majority of out-of-town meets will require overnight accommodations with families assuming responsibility for transportation, lodging, and meal costs.

Our club will participate in 3 to 5 developmental meets, which majority will take place on the weekend in May and June. Our Club also participates in both AAU and USATF sanctioned meets, including competitive week-long national championships and the Junior Olympic Games in July and August.


We welcome both girls and boys in elementary, middle and high school, ages 18 & under regardless of skill and fitness levels. No prior experience is required to competitively participate in the program; there are many different events for everyone.

Athletes compete based on age divisions that are determined by the athlete's age as of December 31st of each year. Athletes who turns 19 after the conclusion of the Junior Olympics or National Championships are eligible to compete in the Yong Women's and Yong Men's divisions.  Athletes will participate in both AAU and USATF sanctioned meets.
