Spring Developmental Track

2018 Spring and Developmental Track

Our Spring Developmental Track Program runs for 7 weekends from March to May. The season consists of 6 regular season meets and 1 championship meet.  Events included are 100m, 1600m, 400m, 800m, and 200m races (run in that order) plus LJ, HJ, & SP.  3200m may be included at select meets.  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 during this time.

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.
