Track and Field season starts soon – register your 4th – 8th graders now (3rd graders are welcome to join us at practice). The daffodils are blooming and sun breaks are emerging—this can only mean one thing: track season is here! Please don’t forget to register! Visit the SportsPilot link and click “REGISTER HERE” (scholarships available too, just email email@example.com).
Running events include distance, sprints, and relays of varying lengths. In addition to the running events, CYO Track and Field features high jump, long jump, shot put, softball throw and turbojav. Eighth graders have the opportunity to participate in the Pentathlon.
Practices are on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8pm at Ingraham High School Track, beginning March 26, and runs through May 30.
Coaches can be very flexible on practice attendance for students in conflicting sports programs, such as club soccer, baseball or Girls on the Run. Please reach out to Coaches Mike or Sam with questions.
Runners compete according to grade and gender.
Students need no track experience, just a good attitude and willingness to try. Coach Mike Martinez (distance runners) and Coach Sam Lipscomb (sprinters) are both fabulous and fun, and welcome any parents that can help with practices and run with students. Lorna Luebbe and Nelle Steele are the team coordinators and help with field event practice.
