Schedules

Our plan for the 2018 season is to run in several track meets throughout the State of Florida.  We compete on both the USATF and AAU circuit, with all athletes having a chance to compete and qualify for the USATF or AAU National Junior Olympics. The USATF National Junior Olympics will be held from 23 July – 29 July 2018 at North Carolina A & T University in Greensboro, NC.  The AAU National Junior Olympics will be held from 30 July – 4 August 2018 at Drake University in Des Moines, IA.  Any athlete that qualifies at the District or Regional Championships (USATF and AAU), or the AAU Club National meet (AAU Only) will be eligible to compete at the National Junior Olympic Games.    

****The 2018 season is broken up into two phases (Regular Season & Post Season).  Your $200.00 Registration Fee  will cover all meets in the Regular Season.  It does not cover meets in  the Post Season.  Post Season meets are optional.  Those meets are  designed to qualify and prepare athletes for national level competition.   The Coaching Staff will manage all registrations that are enclosed on  our schedule.  If you choose to run in a track meet not included on our  schedule, you will be responsible for the registration.  No Post Season  meet registration will be completed until all required fees are paid in  full for the respective meet.
 
"Optional Meets" give each athlete a fair opportunity to advance to a National Junior Olympic Track Meet.  Some meets are  highly competitive meets designed for athletes who are competing at or  near USATF National Standards.  We do not expect your athlete to run in  every listed track meet on our schedule.  The schedule is designed to  give the athlete enough competitive work while giving the Coaching Staff  the necessary flexibility to better train needed skill sets.

It is encouraged that your athlete participate in most of the Regular Season track meets.  Running your child in additional non-scheduled  track meets is strongly discouraged.  Over racing is a huge detractor  from any high level training program.  It causes fatigue which is not  factored into your child’s training schedule.


  

We are very  excited about the 2018 Track and Field season.  We thank you for your  support and look forward to seeing you at the track!

We will begin practices on Monday, February 5, 2018 at Rowlette Park in Tampa.  The first 6 weeks will focus primarily on conditioning.  Following our conditioning cycle, we will transition to the track at King High School (Mon & Wed), and Temple Crest Park (Tues & Thurs) for the remainder of the season.  Practices will be held Monday thru Thursday, and Saturday for the conditioning phase from (5:30pm – 7:00pm Mon – Thur, and 9:00am on Sat).  Our track phase will also include Monday thru Thursday practices with an additional weekend run for our distance athletes on non-competitive Saturday’s.  Distance Athletes will have some variation with practice sites to accommodate their longer runs. We ask parents to please invest in a comfortable running shoe for your athlete.  Shoes worn during practice should be designed for middle distance running.  In addition, please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.  We anticipate cooler temperatures for the first few weeks of the conditioning cycle.  Last, please make sure that you provide water for your athlete during practice.  Hydration is critical to safety and performance.  The coaching staff will factor in water and rest breaks through the course of practice.  Proper hydration starts at home, not at practice!
