What the Race Cats Competition Team?

The Race Cats Competition Running Program is for self-driven kids who are looking for more running and increased structure. The focus will be on proper technique, training plans and racing strategies. The competition season extends into December when those kids who would like to run at Nationals will have a chance to compete. Expenses for any and all national meets must be paid by the athlete.  (We may not have a coach at Nationals, but will train up until the race)! 

Who is it for?


  • 8-15 year old runners who love running and want a little more challenging running program (perhaps to train for another sport).
  • Middle School aged runners.
  • Kids who have the goal of racing at the USATF State Meet and/or qualifying for a National Level Meet.
  • Kids who can run at least 2-3 miles without stopping before the first practice.

Additional cost to be aware of

USATF Youth Membership (only needed to compete in the USATF State & National level Meets): $25/yr.

USATF Association Meet Fee: $10 (approximately)

USATF Nationals Meet Fee: $20 (approximately)

Race Cats Competition members who would like to compete at Nationals are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
