2022 Season Schedule:

Days: Mondays and Fridays

Dates: June 1th – July 22rd

Location: Oak Ridge Park

 

Traditionally in the Summer, we offer all track and field events on a track. This Spring we are offering three options - Distance, Sprints, and Throws (javelin, shot, and discus).  Long jump and hurdles will be added during the season.  All athletes are offered the option of participating in one of the scheduled meets.  Competitve athletes are encouraged to attend the scheduled meets and compete in the USATF Junior Olympic Meet.  More than 250 Flyers participated last Spring with qualifiers for the USATF state, regional, and national championship meets.

Athletes will be taught the fundamentals, techniques, and skills of track & field running, jumping, and throwing events. More experienced athletes will build on the fundamental skills through conditioning and in-depth training for their desired events.

Long jump will continue to be offered at Friday practices.  Athletes signed up for long jump in meets are recommended to be doing practice on Fridays, either at 5:50pm or 7pm.  So for example, if your child is in the 7:00pm sprints group, they should sprint at 7:00pm on Fridays and attend the 5:50 Long Jump practice.  For competitive jumpers, long jump should not be a substitue for sprint practices, they need sprint work as well at least two days per week.

Also, we will begin offering Hurdles on Fridays at 7pm only.  This is open to athletes 11 & Older.  This should be in addition to their normal practices.  This is also geared for athletes that are competing in meets.

Finally, we will also be offereing extra practices for those attending meets on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:45pm at Kehler Stadium in Westfield.
