2018 Track & Field Season

WELCOME TO THE 2018 TRACK & FIELD SEASON

The Central Florida Gliders Track & Field program is open to boys and girls age division 9 and older.  Our pre-season/conditioning practice  starts on January 16th through March 6th at Sanlando Park. The conditioning program focuses on sprint, jumps and throws training as well as agility, flexibility, and endurance with a cost of $100.00. However, if you pay the full club registration fee (new or returning athletes) by 1/16, the 1st week of conditioning, the $100.00 conditioning fee will be waved. This means you will get 2 free months of conditioning when you pay the full club fee by the first practice on 1/16/18 at 5pm. After that date, the $100.00 fee will apply.

The outdoor Track & Field season starts with an information/registration meeting and practice at Sanlando Park on March 6th and runs through the first week in August culminating with the AAU and/or USATF National Championships.  Athletes may continue to join through the end of April (end of May for high school and experienced athletes). 

Practices will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday(including some Wednesdays & Saturdays) at Sanlando Park and later at the Lake Brantley track in Altamonte Springs from 6:00-7:30 . To join the Gliders, simply fill out the online registration form and pay online or by check at the next scheduled practice.  You can contact us at info@cfgliders.com.
