Austintown Youth Track Club Announcement
Sign-ups for 2023 Austintown Youth Track program will go live March 1st through our new business's website.
Track program this year will be run on Sundays with two back-to-back sessions from 3:00 to 4:00 (session A) and 4:00 to 5:00 (session B). Program is setup for 5 to 7 year-olds and 7–12-year-olds for each session. Program will run from June 4th to July 16th. We are accepting 25 children for 5-7 age group and 30 children for 7-12 age groups.
6 weeks of 1-hour practices focusing on introducing athletes to track and field. Events will include 100 meter dash, 400 meter dash, long jump and 50 meter hurdles. Each practice will have a warm up, skill focus (i.e. foot work, plyometrics, baton hand offs or acceleration/starts), set volume of running (i.e. 400 meters sprinting broken into 4x100 meter sprints) and finish with a fun competitive activity (i.e. water bucket transfer relays or connect 4 relays). The 7th week (July 16th) will include our first official track meet where each athlete will compete in 4 events.
Cost for the 6 weeks of practice and 7th week track meet including a T-shirt is $50 plus Tax.
