Our program is a great introduction to track & field. We are a recreational program so we do not require tryouts. All skill levels are welcome. Our program is one of encouragement and stressing individual progress along with offering a degree of competition. We have a staff of professional coaches in addition to student coaches who are all high school track athletes.
If you are interested in a program for kindergarten or 1st graders, please see the information under the Creeks Mini (K & 1st) 2023 Program - All Info tab.

THE UNIFORM SIZING INFORMATION BELOW CAREFULLY!
The cost for a uniform is approximately $45.00 (depending on the short option you choose. Compression shorts are more expensive).
Shipping is additional (approximately $15 for UPS).
This year there is an option to have your order delivered to the track for a fee of $5.00 which will go back to the track club.
There is also a free local pick-up option at the vendor’s location. The vendor is located on CR 210, East of I-95 just before Beachwalk.
WHAT YOU NEED TO ORDER:
Mandatory Singlet Top and Mandatory Running Short OR the black Compression Shorts.
The Ladies Compression Running Shorts are adult sizes only. The basic unisex Compression Running Shorts come in both youth and adult sizes. The unisex compression short is a longer inseam which you will notice from the photo and sizing information. Please refer to the sizing charts on the website. Compression shorts run small, so when in doubt size up.
All uniforms are unisex sizes (singlet tops and running shorts).
Youth sizes will fit as usual standard youth sizes:
YS - Size 6-8
YM - Size 10-12
YL - Size 14-16
Please note that the uniforms are NOT available in Youth X-Small (size 4-5). If your child wears a YXS, please order the singlet (top) in a Youth Small. Your child may wear a white or black t-shirt or tank under the singlet. The singlet is mandatory for the track meets. If a youth small short will not fit your child appropriately, I would suggest your child wear their own shorts (black please).
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE YOUTH IF YOU WANT A YOUTH SIZE. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SIZE CHOICES BEFORE TO COMPLETE YOUR ORDER. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON UNIFORMS
Please make sure your child has a good supportive pair of running shoes to participate in the track program. Spikes are strongly encouraged for 2nd - 8th grade but not required. Spikes are not allowed in the Mini Group (K - 1st).
