Our Track & Field season typically runs from March through the first week in August and our Cross Country season typically runs from September through the first week in December.  Preseason conditioning runs from December through February.  The registration/information meeting occurs during the first practice of the season.  The Central Florida Gliders Track & Field and Cross Country programs are for boys and girls age division 9 and older, no matter the experience level.  Our elite training division is for the very serious athlete and is limited to the open, post-collegiate, high school, and masters age groups.
