The CYA track program is unlike other CYA sports, in that the team consists of runners of various ages and abilities. Participants will be introduced to a variety of events, including short and long distances, field events, relays and hurdles.
Most of the track meets will be "intra-club" where CYA athletes run selected events against their teammates of similar ages. A few track meets will be scheduled with other area youth track programs.
Participants are introduced to all youth track events including: 50 Meter (for younger athletes, 100 Meter, 200 Meter, 400 Meter, 800 Meter, 1600 Meter, Long Jump, High Jump (for the older athletes), Shot Put and Turbo Javelin (a safe, plastic & rubber Javelin).
The Spring Program (March through May) is just once a week, scheduled on Sunday afternoons (practices are an hour & 1/2 but meets take a little longer). Four or five of these Sundays will be track meets and the remaining Sundays will be training / practice sessions. Almost all events (practices and meets) are held at the track at Chantilly High School .
