Pre-Season Letter to CYA Track
Wednesday - March 15, 2023
CYA Track Families -
Thank you for reaching out with all of your questions! As registration ended on Sunday March 12, we now have a final count and list of who is participating.
The website is correct--the first practice will be on Sunday, March 19, from 3-5 at Chantilly High School. There will be a parent information portion to the practice, so please try to attend. After checking your child in with the coaches, please send them to the area noted by signs for their age group, and take a seat in the bleachers.
All practices will be on Sundays from 3-5pm at Chantilly High School. In the event that weather becomes an issue, we will cancel practice, and I will notify you as early as I can based on weather reports and FCPS facility use rules.
Your child will be placed on a team with kiddos his or her own age--teams are:
- PreK/K, 1st and 2nd grade
- 3rd and 4th grade
- 5th and 6th grade
- 7th and 8th grade
Some of the teams will remain co-ed and some will be broken down further into boys and girls, depending on the number of children in that age bracket.
Practices will include several rotations, so that each group has an opportunity to do each activity. Please plan for your child to be dressed in weather appropriate clothing, running shoes or other sneakers, and bring a water bottle. Portable toilets are available to use during practices, so perhaps bring some hand sanitizer as well.
Our meet schedule is almost finalized, and we will have at least one scrimmage at Chantilly, and host the Trophy Mile at the end of the season. Meets will take place on Sundays, although the times will be different from the 3-5 practice slot. More information will be provided at our first practice, and emailed out afterwards.
Athletes will receive a CYA Track shirt, which they will wear to practices and meets after receiving it. I will collect shirt sizes from you all on Sunday.
Please reach out with additional questions! I'm looking forward to a fun season, and am excited to work with your kiddos.
