Track and Trail Racing Team

Track and Field 2018 Race Season

Dates: February 13 - June 10, 2018

Practice Days and Times: Tuesday - Thursday at 6:30pm

Location: Irvine   

Races: Saturdays and / or Sundays (from LA to San Diego with a trip to Phoenix)

Cost: $300 - $450 (depends on track fees imposed on us). Final Cost will be established closer to the season's start.

Focus: Mid Distance (400m - 800m) and Long Distance (1500m - 3000m). We do NOT train specifically for the sprint distances (100m - 200m), but we will allow our runners to compete in those events.

Requirements:

  • Must attend at least 2 of the 3 weekly practices
  • Must commit to the entire season and the weekend races
  • Must be motivated to run. This is NOT a fitness program. We are a competitive racing team.
  • Age: 7 - 14 (up through 8th grade). We will take younger runners if they show the ability to sustain our practices.

Coaching Philosophy: To naturally develop each athlete's running ability and competitive strategies and to deliver them healthy and happy to high school athletics.

More information to come as the season gets closer.
