=PR= Youth Track Team Details


OVERVIEW 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 February/March and carrying forward to late May.

Team members would also attend 2-3 local meets, for which registration is included in the $175 team fee. The session will culminate in USATF champs/Junior Olympics/AAU champs.

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.

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.


The Team program sessions will initially start at 3PM and last roughly 60 minutes to allow participants to adjust to the winter weather and gradually build skills. Starting in March, the Team practice will begin at 4PM (30 minutes prior to the regular Youth Track Program) and last 90 minutes.
The program is designed with this fact in mind — your child’s experience will NOT be compromised if you cannot attend every week. Older participants can also ask coaches for guidance on what to do on their own during the week.

Spring Session: February 12 – May 28 (no season 4/16 Easter), meets SUNDAYS from 3:00-4:00 PM


2017 Youth Track Team:  $175

All paid participants will receive a shirt and special promotions at Potomac River Running Store.



Please Note: While we plan to engage as many coaches and volunteers as necessary to accommodate interest, the program MAY fill, so early registration is encouraged.

 Assuming the program is not full, we WILL continue to accept participants throughout the program’s duration and welcome late joiners — but, there is no pro-rating of the $175 fee.
