CYA TRACK ENHANCES PROGRAM!!!!
Offers special Track for Soccer Players program in addition to its overall program.
After a successful restart to the CYA Spring and Summer Track Programs last year, CYA Track has announced the addition of a new program designed for soccer players. The regular program is also back and better than ever!
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.
SPECIAL TRACK for SOCCER PLAYERS PROGRAM ANNOUNCED
In addition to the regular program, a special program will be continued this year for soccer players. This program will also be run on Sunday afternoons, and will emphasize conditioning, speed, and strength. The program is meant to supplement in-season soccer players, or those children who want to take a temporary break from the sport.
Track for Soccer players participants will get a special program T-Shirt as part of their registration. They will compete along with the rest of the team at the track meets and on Trophy Mile Day, but they will have practices and drills that should supplement their soccer programs.
Soccer players interested in signing up for track are not required to participate in this program, and are welcome to participate in the lower-key regular program if they wish.
The Spring Program (March through May) is just once a week, scheduled on Sunday afternoons (practices are an hour 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. Participants will be encouraged to compete at the end of the season in the local Hershey Youth Track regional competition. Almost all events (practices and meets) are held at the track at Chantilly High School.
The cost for the program is $80 for the season, and includes a track singlet (jersey) and special T-Shirt.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer. Season volunteers will receive a further $20 refund on the registration fee for their child, AND a CYA Track coach's T-Shirt. Experience in track or running is not required. CYA Track has commitments from several Northern Region Coaches, folks who have produced countless championship athletes, who are willing to work with us this year to share some of the magic and fun that track offers.
Registration information is available online at www.chantillyyouth.org, or email Ed Lull, CYA Track Director at CYATRACK@cox.net.
