Meet information (including the list of events and the meet schedule) will be posted. Athletes will compete in one of three age groups. Novices and Minors may compete in a maximum of 3 events. Cadets may compete in up to 4 events. We will work closely with each athlete to determine which events she or he is most interested in and are most suited for.
Athletes should practice in comfortable running shoes. You may also want to purchase track spikes for the meets-but it is not required. Spikes may be no longer than ¼ inch. There are sprint, mid-distance and long distance track shoes available. Athletes need to bring plenty of water to all practices and meets. The track can be cold and windy at the beginning of the season. Athletes should dress in layers! Track uniforms will be provided to wear in the meets. If the athlete wants to wear their own shorts, please have them wear navy blue if possible.
