Registration for our Spring Track and Field Programs is open. EARLY REGISTRATION IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGE - space is limited.
Our Club is happy to announce that we are offering two programs for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. Members may choose to do one or both of these programs.
PROGRAM A is our traditional program offering basic instruction and weekly competitions, as well as the opportunity to continue on during the summer to compete in Jr. Olympic competitions and other youth meets, while PROGRAM B will offer a more structured training program that is specifically geared toward Jr Olympic level competitions held during the summer.
PROGRAM A will begin on April 28 and continue through June 10. If members choose to continue through the summer, the program will continue through the end of July. Sessions will be offered Sundays at 5:00-7:00; Mondays and Thursdays at 6:00-8:00. Members choose which nights they wish to attend - we encourage two nights per week - we do not expect nor encourage more than two nights per week. All sessions are held at the J Lee Gould Track and Field Facility at Leary Field on Bacon Street, in Waltham.
PROGRAM A is open to boys and girls, ages 8-14. There are no special requirements - no tryouts or cuts. The first two weeks of this program will offer instruction and practice time for each event. Beginning the third week, competitions will be held each night. Members will choose which events they wish to compete in. Ribbons will be awarded in each event. Each member’s performances will be maintained on our personal record chart and awards will be presented at our end of season Awards’ Night - awards will be based on the number of personal records set by each member during the season.
Parents of members who register for Program A are asked to select one of many volunteer duties. We encourage parents to consider becoming one of our youth coaches - NO EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED - we will teach you all that you need to know.

PROGRAM B is open to boys and girls, ages 12-14, who plan to compete during the summer in the Jr Olympic competitions and who want a more structured conditioning and event specific training program than Program A provides. There are no special requirements, but members should have track and field experience - this program is not for beginners.
Program B will offer sessions on Sundays at 4:00, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00. Members will choose which nights they wish to attend and which events they wish to focus on. All sessions will be held at the J Lee Gould Track and Field Facility at Leary Field on Bacon Street in Waltham. Program B participants must commit to competing in the Jr Olympic competitions in June and July.
Those interested in PROGRAM B need to contact our Club director to express their interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
Members who are interested in both PROGRAM A and PROGRAM B, should register for PROGRAM A first and then contact our Club director about joining PROGRAM B.
