2014 Track & Field Season
The 2014 Track & Field season began with pre-season practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays, February 4-27, 2014. The season officially kicked off with our annual registration and information meeting on March 4th at Sanlando Park. Registration remains open for new athletes through April 30th, and for experience middle and high school athletes through May 30th.
Because of our success over 20 years in training athletes for national competition, this year the Gliders Track Club will offer another option for training. We have created a new elite training division for the very serious athlete which is limited to the open, post-collegiate, high school, and masters age groups. All our coaches are Level I or Level II certified and coach all the events in track & field as well as cross country. However, we especially specialize in the hurdles, jumps, distance and multi-events. This select group will train 4-6 days a week from February to July in specialized and sometimes individual training sessions, depending on the event. This elite training group is designed for the athlete who has made a commitment to improve their skill base to compete in national and international competition. The cost of training in this elite division is $100 per month excluding the cost of a uniform, competition and travel fees. Elite athletes that qualify for USA National competition will receive some financial assistance.
All athletes must complete a 2014 registration form prior to attending their first practice. Visit our "Practice Schedule" and "Club Registration" pages for additional information.
