                                                  SYA Youth Track Program
For Boys and Girls K - 8th

The track and field program will work with the athletes on correct stretching, breathing techniques and running form.  We will also teach proper mechanics for both field and running events.    

The events available at our track meets are the same ones that occur during the High School meets-with exception of Pole Vault and Triple Jump.  *Note participants that fall in the U6 category will be eligible for the 50M and Long Jump only.  

The goal for each child is to improve from the beginning of the season to the end. Each child will be asked to set a goal that they would like to achieve (big or small) and we will help them meet or exceed that goal. The main emphasis is steady improvement. Once a goal is obtained then a new one will be set.   

The program has two teams.  A Recreation Team and a Travel Team.  The registration is the same, the parents will let the coach know which team they would like the athlete to participate on.   

Recreation team is for athletes who want to practice running and field events but who do not want regularly participate in track meets and compete against other athletes. The recreation team will have practices twice a week.  The recreation team will focus on learning the fundamentals of track & field.    

Travel team is for athletes who want to practice running and field events and want to participate in the majority of the track meets and compete against other athletes.  The travel team will have practices twice a week.  Track Meets will be in Frederick or Carroll County. Most meets start around noon and last approximately 4-5 hours.   Participants may leave once their events are completed. ** Each participant will be required to pay the entrance fee for each track meet which typically ranges between $5.00 - $6.00 per child.  All athletes will have the opportunity to compete against other athletes in their age group from different track organizations. Ribbons are awarded typically to those who place 1st-6th place based on event/age/gender.    

The Season starts mid-March.    

Practices will be at the Hagerstown Community College Track and at Smithsburg High School track.  We cannot practice at SHS when they have Lacrosse games.  We will not know which nights they have games or make up games until closer to the season.
