Our spring track and field program provides opportunities to learn about running as well as the disciplines of throws, jumps, sprints and hurdles.
Please note that there will not be a track and field program for Spring 2016 because there is lack of venue to use. We will be doing a cross country program in the fall so keep a look out for information regarding this in August.
Our fall cross country program focuses on long distance running. We strive to create a positive learning environment where your child will develop proper form and discipline to improve speed, agility, endurance and performance. They will progress over the season by developing an understanding of the concept of “pace” and the mental side of running, which in turn will greatly improve their individual times and increase the distances which they can run.
Our coaches and staff place an even greater emphasis on good sportsmanship. Our goal is to foster a team environment that will support our youth emotionally and socially and help them build a positive self-image. To this end, TRS Youth Running Club will participate in competitive track and field events sanctioned by the USA Track and Field (USATF) organization and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). Competition will also help improve leadership skills and encourage greater participation in school sport programs.
The success of our program is due to the dedication of our young athletes, the commitment of our coaches and the strong participation of our parent volunteers. It’s exciting to watch the children increase their endurance, develop confidence in their abilities, surpass their own expectations, and enjoy the spirit of competition. It is our hope that kids learn to apply the discipline learned through track and field to their daily lives to accomplish more than they ever thought possible by working hard and striving to be the best they can be.
