The goal of the RAAA Track program is to create an enjoyable, memorable experience for boys and girls providing instructional guidance in the fundamentals of Track.
Participants must be 5 years of age by August 31, 2022. Mutual friend requests will be considered, but are not guaranteed.
The 2022 Season runs from 4/10/2022 to 5/22/2022.
TENTATIVE MEET DATES
Meets will be held on Saturday or Sunday, depending on age group. Meets will be held April 23rd/24th, April 30th/May 1st, May 7th/8th, May 14th/15th and May 21st/22nd. Please note that meet dates could change due to any changes related to COVID protocols. Meet dates will be published prior to the start of the season.
Each team needs two (2) coaches. In the past, we have had a shortage of coaches at all levels and we urge anyone who is even remotely interested to please consider volunteering your time to coach your child's team. The positive impact you have on our children's level of engagement cannot be overstated and is a vital ingredient to the success of our program. There are some minor 'hurdles' that we need our coaches to clear - including concussion certification, background check and PCA (Positive Coaching Alliance) training. In addition, we are asking each team to hold one practice per week. Practices are held weather permitting, and range from 45 minutes to 1 hour in duration, depending on the age group. This year, we will be sharing some practice ideas with the different age group coaches at the coaches meeting.
If you are not certain that you are able to commit to a coaching position, please consider volunteering at the track meets. Weekly sign-ups will be emailed to all families. Your help is integral to the success of this program - if we don't have enough volunteers for meet setup, assistance and tear down, we cannot hold the meet.
None required. 1/8" spikes allowed for 4th-6th graders only.
