What's the Goal? To prepare kids for competition in track and field events through teaching proper technique, a healthy competitive mindset, and confidence.
How does it work? We provide 4-5 stations at every practice.
Distance (800M, 1500M, 3,000M)
Sprints (100M, 200M, 400M, Hurdles)
Throws (Shot put and Javelin)
Jumps (High Jump and Long Jump)
Agility (Drills, games, and strength training for ALL athletes)
Athletes will choose their favorite disciplines and have time to practice two or three stations each day. Practices include warm-up, stretching, 25 minutes in their choice of three stations, and cool-down stretching. Athletes wanting to specialize in one area can spend two rotations in their favorite discipline and also go to the agility station for additional strength and injury prevention training.
Meets: We attend USATF club track meets in the Salt Lake and Utah County area. 2018 meet schedule will be shared as soon as it is available. For an idea of approximately what the schedule will look like, see the 2017 schedule HERE. Race Cats athletes are expected to compete in at least two USATF track meets and are encouraged to compete in the USATF-Utah Association Championships on June 7-9, 2018 (tentatively at BYU). We will host one or two home meets at Corner Canyon High School. Dates TBA.
Athletes must have a USATF membership ($20/year at usatf.org) to compete in the State meet. Top five finishers at State will be invited to advance to the USATF Region 11 meet (tentatively June 21-23 in Utah).
