MYAA Track + Field

General Information for 2024

Start date: March 11, 2023

Athletes are grouped by birth year. Practice for each age group will be held twice per week. 8U will practice for one hour; athletes turning 9 and older this calendar year will practice for an hour and a half.
Most practices will be held at Shawnee High School's track (600 Tabernacle Rd.); however, other locations will be utilized when Shawnee is not available.
It can get chilly at the track, especially in March and April, so be sure your child dresses appropriately. Layers are great.
Athletes should also bring their own water to practice. 

Our club participates in the Garden State Track and Field Association along with Camden Clockchasers, Marlton, RV, South Jersey Track and Field Club, TAA, Thriving Joy, Washington Township, and World Athlete.
Meets are typically held on Saturdays at Shawnee or other local venues, but can be scheduled on Friday evenings or Sundays, depending on track availability. The full practice and meet schedule will be available at the beginning of the season on the Team Snap app.
Meets can last several hours, so make sure your child arrives with snacks, plenty of water, and protection from the sun.
Athletes will compete within their own age group for most events. Longer events, like the 3000, are typically run in one or two heats. 
Athletes may participate in up to three events. Once your child's last event is over, he or she is free to leave. Be sure to check in with his or her coach before you go.

Meet Events:
Track: 80M Hurdles, 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1500M, 3000M, 4 x 100M Relay

Every athlete is entitled to a uniform singlet (top).More information about ordering a uniform top is forthcoming.
Shorts should be royal blue. You can purchase shorts through our online apparel store or provide your own. It is recommended that all Junior Olympics Athletes order team shorts.
We will also have an online apparel store where you can purchase additional optional items, like hoodies, sweatpants, etc.
More information on uniform fittings and the online apparel store will be available in the weeks to come.

The Junior Olympics program is open to athletes turning 9 or older this calendar year. It includes one additional practice per week (starting in April), and at least one AAU meet after our regular season is over. More information on the Junior Olympics Program will be available once our season begins.

Our program is possible because of our dedicated volunteers. Please consider volunteering to coach or to help at home meets. No experience is required. 

Practice will cancelled if there is heavy/steady rain for 30 minutes before practice and/or the temperature is less than 40 degrees at the start of practice time. Notice will be given by the coach via Team Snap.
Parents please use your best judgement in sending your child to practice in case of challenging weather conditions.

We are looking forward to a fun season!
