We provide a safe, supportive, and positive coaching environment that allows young athletes to learn about and compete in the full breadth of track and field events. After trying a variety of events, and with the guidance of coaching staff, athletes will choose up to three events to specialize in. They will train for these events and compete in them in the Junior Olympics and other local competitions.
All abilities are welcome, but athletes are expected to take the training seriously and take advantage of the supportive coaching environment to challenge themselves. We expect athletes to work hard while having fun and end the season having made substantial improvements in their respective events.
Events include 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500 ,3000, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump, shot put, discus, and javelin.
Masco Youth Track & Field is open to athletes in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades that reside in one of three Masco towns. The cost is $75.
Season starts Monday, April 27. All athletes are expected to compete in the USATF Junior Olympic Association Meet on June 20, 2020. This meet is the big game after months of training. Athletes that place in the top eight will be eligible for the Regional meet July 9-12 in Brunswick, Maine. The top five there will qualify for nationals in Florida.
We will also have several local meets that all athletes are expected to compete in.
We practice on Mondays and Wednesday from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and also one weekend day. Practices are at the Masco track. Note that we are very understanding of conflicts with other sports. Athletes that play other sports but are committed to training and competing in the Junior Olympics are welcome to participate. We will work with you around conflicts.
The 2020 Summer Olympics are in Tokyo, Japan. It will be an exciting year for our athletes as they participate in the Junior Olympics and then get to watch the USA athletes compete in Tokyo a few weeks later.
The more coaches we have, the stronger the program. Plus you can get a workout in while training with the kids. Email Coach Toleos if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure to indicate you are willing to volunteer when you register.
