Track & Field
REGISTRATION FOR THIS LEAGUE IS NOW OPEN!!!
We are excited for another season of the Track and Field Ministry this upcoming summer here at Colonial. This will be a great opportunity for our youth to display their physical talents and teach them Christian truths that will help them grow and endure in the race of life. Youth and teens from the ages of 7 to 18 (as of June 1st) are encouraged to join! We will be meeting at both Centennial Elementary School and at Colonial for team practices during the season. Practices will be from 6:00-7:30 pm. Parents, please keep in mind that some travel will be required for participation at the meets we enter. Please also make note that participation in meets is entirely optional. Participants may choose to only practice and not participate in any of the meets. Looking forward to enjoying a very exciting season of fellowship, competition, and fun. There will be a parent meeting on Wednesday, May 30th @ 6 pm in CC 120 ( First floor of the Children's Center)
This team is intended for boys and girls in Elementary through High School who love to run! The practices, runs and meets are designed for those who enjoy the sport of track & field and/or competing in order to learn, improve and continue their joy of running. The cost of registration is $80.00 and includes the cost of rental of our offsite facilities, and the cost of the jersey.
- Practices will begin on Monday, June 4th and run through Monday, July 30th.
- For the first week or two, we will meet at Colonial before moving over the Centennial Middle School (see direction link above) for the remainder of the season.
- Boys/girls, runners will train together but will run separate races at the meets (not co-ed).
- We are able to field teams of approximately 25 girls and 25 boys at the middle school meets (dependent upon the number of coaches we have).
- Emphasis will be placed on fun and sportsmanship, along with running, stretching and injury prevention skills.
- There will be a weekly team devotion.
- There will be an additional cost per athlete for the various meets they enter.
