MYA ES/MS DEVELOPMENTAL TRACK AND FIELD PROGRAM

COVID-19 – THE MYA BOARD WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND WILL FOLLOW GUIDELINES FROM THE CDC AND SHELBY COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT..

 

The MYA Spring ES/MS Developmental Track & Field Program runs from March to May. The season consists of 3-4 regular season meets and 1 championship meet.  Events included are 100m hurdles, 100m, 1600m, 400m, 800m, and 200m races (run in that order) plus LJ, HJ, & SP. Athletes may compete “unattached” or with a school based team.  Volunteer coaches are needed to coach school based teams.  Coaches can include school PE teachers, parent coaches, or other volunteers at their Elementary School, Middle School or the community. In most cases, this ‘team’ is considered a school club, supported by the parents and PTSOs.  MYA will serve as your meet director and facilitator during the developmental season. We do not hold practices nor train athletes during this part of the season. If your school does not have a program and you would like one then we can get you started! Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are homeschooled, or just love to run!!

Athletes will be randomly assigned to heats of their entered events for the first Developmental season meet.  At subsequent meets, including the championship meet, athletes will be assigned to heats of each entered event  based on their previous times (seeded). We will find a competitive heat for each athlete, regardless of their ability or experience with the sport. Depending on the number of athletes per event, these races could be mixed (boys and girls) or single gender.

Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it’s all about.
