Pre-Season Prep

Is your child planning to come out for the Comets this season? Great! You might be wondering what you should be doing now to help prepare your child for track and field season. The answer is very little. No off-season conditioning or prior experience is required. Our track club seeks to offer ALL kids an opportunity to experience track and field.

Our season starts in mid-April and the first few weeks of practice will mostly be easy running/drills so we can build each athlete’s athletic base before progressing to speed workouts later in the season. This approach reduces the likelihood of injury and helps build each athlete’s confidence.

As for gear…track and field is one of the few sports that doesn’t require spending large sums of money at a sporting goods store in advance of the season. No equipment purchases are necessary as our club provides all the needed equipment (shot puts, hurdles, javelins, starting blocks, etc). The only thing we ask is that each child has a good pair of running shoes if participating in a running event. There are several local running stores in the area that can help fit your child if you need assistance in selecting a pair of running shoes.

We can’t wait to see you this spring!

Welcome to the 2021 Season!

Cold temps, but warm spirits at the Comets first practice of the season.

After a disappointing cancelled 2020 season, the Comets were finally back in action tonight!

Outside the temps were in the low 40s, but everyone’s spirits were warm. The athletes were excited to see old friends and meet new ones! And, the team enjoyed an easy run on the trail.
