The Cape Sports track and field program offers children the opportunity to develop their skills in a variety of sprint, distance, and field activities in competitions through intramural club practices and meets. Skills and conditioning gained in track and field will also benefit athletes involved in other sports as well.
Our program is for children and teens from 6 to 14 (exiting grades 1-8). The dates are going to be June 24 - July 29. There may be some interruption due to sports camps at the High School. The cost will be $100 per participant and at this time we do not plan on offering drop in registrations for individual meets. All registrations must be done through the Cape Sports website. (www.capesports.com)
Participants are introduced to sprint, distance, and field events and then will compete in those events based on the coaches input. The program’s emphasis is on training, running form and building skills. Athletes will compete against others of their gender and/or age. Age is determined by the information provided to us by the Cape Sports on the registration forms. Meet ribbons and/or medals will be given in all events for all age group
After seeing the level of progress with our athltes in small groups last year, we will continue limiting the enrollment in each age group. Athletes who sign up after the roster is full will be put on a wait list. If you are volunteering to coach an age group, please reach out directly to our program. CapeTrackandField@gmail.com
NEW THIS YEAR: We will be offering event specific training for athletes exiting grades 6-11 for Shotput/Discus and Pole Vault (no younger participants will be accepted). Make sure you specifically sign up for this, and NOT for the traditional program. Athletes must be physically capable of participating in the event in order to be trained. If an athletes is deemed "not ready" by our coaches, they have the option of joining our traditional running program or receiving a refund. Pole Vault participants must posses upper body strength and body awareness- typically gymnasts, cheerleaders, dancers, wrestlers. Doing pullups, handstands or other traditional body weight training is highly suggested. For shotput and discus, athletes must possess the strength to hold 8-12 pounds in their hand without their wrist being compromised. Athletes will compete in track meets in these events.
