Eligibility

Open to all boys and girls of Middle school age (grades 6, 7, 8) or Elementary School Age (grades 3,4 and 5). We realize that certain school districts have different grade designations for Middle School and Elementary School but we will need to adhere to one standard. The program is open to all public, private schools and home schooled athletes.

Middle School athletes must compete in at least one regular season meet in order to be eligible for the championship meet. Home schooled and or individuals who do not have schools participating may compete as unattached, part of a school team closest to their normal public school zone or as part of a recognized home school cooperative.

The same applies to elementary school.

We are having 5 meets in March - May (Subject to change). These will be an abbreviated meet program for each meet (see below) for grades 3rd - 8th. The idea is to keep the length of each meet no longer than 4.5 hours (10:00 am - 2:30 pm or 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm).

We will need volunteer help for each meet.

*We may add events on a per meet basis but this will require a coach or coaches to help with the additions. Feel free to reach out to us before hand to suggest additions.

Practice Times

These times are at your discretion. We recommend that you practice a minimum of 2-3 times a week in order to fully prepare the kids to complete a 2-mile (or 1 mile for Elementary) course comfortably. Your initial goal should be to promote positive fitness goals with performance issues taking a back seat to participation. There will be a guide published on www.memphisyouthathletics.org/coaches--page.html to help you with sample training programs.

Insurance

Practice and Meet Insurance coverage provided through the USATF (USA Track and Field) our sports governing body. Individual accident medical coverage (pays as overage to primary parent coverage) is provided as part of Registration Fee.

$ 30.00 per athlete for the entire season (one meet or all 5) For those athletes who are not able to afford the program costs a fee waiver may be granted. Please contact the program director for details.
