Summer Track & Field Team
Jump higher, run faster, and throw longer. Athletes will learn the fundamentals of track and field events in a fun, relaxed team environment and participate in small local meets throughout the summer season. The VRPA State Meet will be held on July 20th. The “mini-meet” schedule will be finalized as we near the start of the program in June and have typically been held on Wednesday evenings. Parent volunteers are requested to help move those mini-meets along and Essex will be hosting at least one during the season. The athlete’s age group will be determined by his/her age as of August 31, 2019. Athletes aged 7-14 on August 31, 2019 are eligible to participate in the State meet. We will end the season with a family-fun meet on Monday, July 22nd (rain date: 7/24). Registration must be received before May 31st to receive a team shirt.
