Youth Track Details

OVERVIEW Introduce your younger child to Track & Field and/or help your older child improve his/her event specific skills.  This low-key, fun program includes sprinting and distance running, jumping, and more.  Athletes will learn a routine of proper warmup, drills, and stretching, and be exposed to some of the more specific, technical aspects of certain events (starts, form, etc.)

The track practices enable athletes to test their progress with some timed efforts. Coaches may suggest further competitive opportunities for more experienced athletes and/or those seeking a more official timed competition. Note: In the future we may add locations, but the coaching/volunteer demands for a youth program are such that we are limited to Reston for the moment. 
PROGRAM DETAILS

This program meets SUNDAYS at South Lakes High School in Reston.  Youth Track is appropriate for youth from ages 4-13, as well as high school athletes seeking additional help in the off-season/over the summer.

Participants are encouraged to attend weekly practice, but we understand that school events, vacations, other sports, and family commitments may mean participants cannot always attend every session. 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.

Practices enable athletes to test their progress with some timed efforts. Coaches may suggest further competitive opportunities for more experienced athletes and/or those seeking a more official timed competition.

PLEASE NOTE:  If your child is 9 or over and seeks a more competitive opportunity, during the SPRING months, consider the =PR= Youth Track Team.

 

PROGRAM DURATION

The program is offered in the Spring and Fall. During summer, we sometimes offer shorter sessions, reducing early summer conflicts with other sports and vacations.)

UPCOMING SESSIONS

Summer and Fall 2017 sessions have been posted!

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 $70 fee (which has already been subsidized due to the youth focus of this program.)
