Youth Track & Field Team
(Ages 4-12 yrs)
Join us for a unique Track and Field program that culminates with an All-City Track and Field Meet
This program puts emphasis on skill development and sportsmanship. If you are looking to improve your running technique and coordination in the Track & Field events, or gain endurance for another sport, then this is for you!
Participants will spend 4-7 weeks, depending on your center’s practice dates, working on technique and training for up to three events. Participants will receive a uniform representing their YMCA.
They will compete for your Center YMCA Team in two dual meets and at the seasonal (Spring or Fall) All-City Track & Field Meet. Program participants from YMCA’s throughout greater Indianapolis will compete.
Events include relays, dashes, modified shot put, javelin, and long jump.
Check you center’s Program Guides or ask at Member Services for more details on specific practice dates and times.

Youth Cross Country Team
Is your child a runner? Does he/she want to improve their abilities?
Then the Y’s Track / Cross Country Training program will keep your child running down the right path.
Not only will the running drills and flexibility training help young runners improve their technique, especially for running long distances, but will help improve their coordination for other sports as well. Our cross country program will compete in our All City Cross Country Meet, and have three dual meets that will be held on Saturdays. Check your center for more details on practice dates and times.
