Track & Cross Country


We provide a safe, supportive, and positive coaching environment that allows young athletes to gain experience in a wide variety of track and field events. With the guidance of coaching staff, athletes will choose up to three events in which to specialize and will compete in the Junior Olympics and other local meets.

Events include the 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, 3000, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump, shot put, discus, and javelin.


Athletes are expected to make every effort to complete in all meets, especially the Junior Olympic New England Championships in late June. There are usually around five meets that take place on weekends.

While we pride ourselves on our supportive coaching environment, we are a competitive program focused on preparing athletes for state, regional, and national competition. Our highly credentialed staff includes USATF Level 1 and Level 2 certified coaches, high school coaches, and coaches that have competed at the collegiate level. We welcome athletes of all abilities but expect them to train hard and to be ambitious.


Registration is open to athletes in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades who live in any of the three Masco towns. The program fee is $120. USA Track & Field Membership ($25) is also required. Guidance on this will be provided later. 

Uniforms are purchased separately and can be used for all of our programs (outdoor track, cross country, and indoor track). 


We are awaiting final confirmation but expect to practice Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:00PM to 7:30PM at the Masco track starting on April 6 and ending at the New England Championships meet in June. There will be optional training on a weekend day (probably Sunday) depending on coach availability.


We believe that playing multiple sports should not be a reason to miss out on track and field and the excitement of Junior Olympic competition. Athletes that play other sports but are committed to training with us as much as they can and plan to participate in the Junior Olympics are welcome in our program.
