CYO Track and Field starts soon:
Register your 4th – 8th graders now!
3rd graders are welcome to join 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 protected].
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. 8th graders have the opportunity to participate in the Pentathlon.
- Practices begin Monday, March 26 and run to May 31 (no practice Memorial Day)
- Practices: Mon. and Wed. 6:30 pm-8 pm at the Ingraham HS Track
- Coaches can be very flexible on practice attendance for kids 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/gender and we need at least 8 runners per grade/gender to run two team relays.
Kids don’t need to have any track experience—they just need 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 can come who can help with practices and run with kids. Lorna Luebbe and Nelle Steele will be the team coordinators and help with field event practice.
