Outdoor season starts Monday April 16 / Team Meeting on Wednesday April 11

 

 

The Ann Arbor Track Club (AATC) Youth Outdoor track season starts Monday April 16. Practices will generally be held every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-9 PM, thru Thursday July 26, except for the following dates: Monday May 28 (Memorial Day), Wednesday July 4  (Independence Day) and some Mondays following major weekend track meets to give athletes rest (TBA).

All track practices are tentatively planned to be held at the “old” University of Michigan outdoor track (1150 South State Street).  Please note that high-school athletes who will be competing for their respective school track teams are not expected to start practicing with the club until after the High school state track Championship meet in early June.

There will be a Team Meeting Wednesday night April 11 in the Ann Arbor area for all athletes and their families who participated in this past youth indoor track season and for those who are planning on (or are considering) the upcoming youth outdoor track season. Due to the potentially large number of people who may wish to attend, the staff would like to get a head count so we can choose a facility that will be suitable. The actual meeting location will be announced next week. Even though the entire meeting may last two hours (from 7-9 PM)  there’s no need to attend the entire meeting necessarily:
 
Those who participated during the indoor season, who have no plans to participate during the outdoor season can attend just the first hour of the meeting which will be spent discussing the past indoor season and recognize the kids for all their hard work and accomplishments.
 
Those who did not participate during the indoor season, but plan on (or are considering) participating during the outdoor season can attend the second hour, which will be spent discussing the upcoming outdoor season.
 
Only those who participated during the indoor season and plan to participate during the outdoor season as well should attend the entire meeting. 
There will be a short intermission after the first hour, to dismiss those attending just the first hour, and to allow those attending the second hour to take their seats.
If you are interested in joining the Ann Arbor Track Club or wish to come to the Team meeting, please contact Ron Beasley at 734-330-7931 or youth@aatrackclub.org
