Practice Days are primarily Tuesdays from 6:00-7:30. Some Wednesday practices may be necessary in order to get track time.
Practices will be held at Bartram Trail High School either on the track or on the practice field.
Tentative 2023 Spring Practice and Meet Schedule:
Practice will be canceled during the week when the weather is bad. Cancellations may occur do to lightening, heavy rain or poor field conditions. Please note that due to the possibility of injury, illness, behavioral problems, weather cancellation or other issues, ALL CHILDREN MUST HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN ON SITE (not waiting in the car) DURING PRACTICE.Events offered at the meets are:
Ribbons will be awarded at the meets for 1st thru 6th place in each event. Competition categories will be split by gender and grade.
Please consider ordering spirit wear for your child and family. All proceeds go back to the track club and help us purchase equipment and provide coaching. Fundraising is very important to us! Please support our club!
You may reuse last year’s uniforms. If you are reusing, it is very important that you email ([email protected]) your child’s singlet number for my spreadsheets.
Each athlete will be assigned a number which will be printed on their singlet top. The numbers are assigned randomly. The athletes do not get to choose their numbers.
Uniforms are MANDATORY to participate in track meets. The link to the web store is:

The cost for a uniform is approximately $45.00 (depending on the short option you choose. Compression shorts are more expensive).
Shipping is additional ($15 for UPS). This year there is once again 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. There will be no home delivery option this year, only UPS.
WHAT YOU NEED TO ORDER:
Mandatory Singlet Top and Mandatory Running Short OR the black Compression Shorts.
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
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
FOOTWEAR:Please make sure your child has a good supportive pair of running shoes to participate in the track program. SPIKES ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE MINI PROGRAM!
All families are required to volunteer. During registration, volunteer opportunities are listed. In our Mini group we need parents to help assist our primary coaches and during the meets we need parents to help measure at long jump during the track meets. You will only measure while your child's group is jumping. Volunteering will not cause you to miss your athlete competing in the other events.
Parent Assistant Coaches will rotate with their child's group during practice and meets and help the student coaches. By having the parents help, the student coaches are able to focus on coaching rather than other things.
