Track & Field begins in April and runs through the Junior Olympics Qualifiers in June, where kids can then qualify for the Junior Olympics Regionals or Nationals later in July and August.
When: Practices will be on Monday and Thursday nights from 6:00 to approximately 7:30 with event focused clinics on Saturdays. The first practice includes a mandatory information meeting for parents. Parents must be available to pick up their kids 15 minutes prior to the end of practice. Track meets are scheduled throughout the season. Check the Calendar page for the most up-to-date schedule.
Where: Averill Park High School track, behind the school.
Who: Kids ages 7-14 who like to run, jump, throw, play games & have fun! You do not need to be a resident of the Averill Park School District.
What: Practices consist of distance and sprint exercises along with lots of games. Field events include long jump, high jump, hurdles, shot put, turbo javelin and discus. Through the season there will be several meets where we are competing against other teams. The big event is your participation in the Junior Olympics in June.
How: Please visit our Registration Page for details and to sign-up.. Early-Bird registration will be available with a $10 discount. There is a $10 sibling discount. A $15 late fee is applied after the season starts. ** NOTE: The 2021 season fees will be reduced, as well as the sibling discount will be reduced, due to the limited length of the season ** We are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization and do not want the cost of APRR Programs to be a barrier to participation. If your child is interested in participating but your current financial circumstance is a concern, please contact the APRR Board. We have a number of scholarships available.
All athletes must also be registered with the USATF (United States Track & Field Association). Registrations cost $25 for youth and are good for a calendar year. Your USATF membership can also be used for Cross Country in the fall. Get your child's USATF number first because you will need it for the AP Road Runners registration process. ** For the 2021 Season, due to the limit on number of athletes we can accept into the program, please wait to register with USATF until your RoadRunner registration is cofirmed. ** USATF registration is required for all athletes, as our insurance is through USATF and we are a USATF Sanctioned Club.
