Youth Track & Field Registration This Week

Posted on: April 7, 2019
Track & Field

We are pleased to present information for the 2019 season of Harrison's Youth Track & Field program that is available to the entire community.  The design of this program is to introduce the sport of track & field to kids in our area.  Participants will learn the basic fundamentals of the sport and at the same time develop athletic skills such as speed, strength, running form, and jumping and throwing ability that are useful in all sports.  We are looking to have a fun, low-key environment that will build a passion, love, and interest in the sport.

 

Students from grades K-6 in the Southwest Local School District are eligible for this program.  Practices begin the week of Monday April 22.  5th and 6th grades will practice each Monday from 5:30-6:30 and Wednesday from 6:30-7:30. K-4th grades will practice on Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 beginning April 24.  All practices will take place at the Harrison High School Track & Field Complex.

 

Meets will be on Saturdays at 9:00 am beginning Saturday, May 4 with the last meet on Saturday, June 1.  Meets will be held at Harrison High School or Taylor High School.   Athletes are not required to attend all meets/practices. Events will include the Long Jump, Softball Toss, and the 50, 75, 100, 200, and 400 meter Dashes and the 800m Run.

 

Registration will be held at the Harrison High School Commons on Tuesday, April 9 and Wednesday, April 10 from 5:30 - 7:00.  Cost of registration is $35.  You can also register online at http://harrisonathleticboosters.com.
