We continue to need parent/adult volunteers to ensure all of our kids have a great track experience. Regardless of your experience level, we welcome and value your support to the team. Be assured, we will prepare you for any volunteer time you provide the team. For those interested in helping out in anyway for the 2022 season please email ERAATandF@gmail.com.
East Ridge Athletic Association (ERAA) Track & Field supports the development of area youth runners through training and competition--and facilitates their growth into high school athletes. Recommended age range is from age 7 to 18.
Track & Field can be the root of fitness in many sports and can afford habits that promote good health for a lifetime. Our program will teach fundamental skills for sprints, distance, and jumping. There are no attendance boundaries to participate in the program.
Important - this program is not the high school team and not the middle school team (those are a different registration). This is a separate youth track & field program which begins the middle of April and continues through the end of July.
Our typical schedule:
Practices, Spring start: mid- April (weather permitting).
Practices, early June: Move to North High School for 5 practices to enable a good track prior to initial track meets.
Practices, Summer: Shift to ERHS and increase to 3 days per week
Track Meets: We plan to participate in recreational and competitive (USATF/AAU) track meets. Meet participation is encouraged yet voluntary based on each athlete’s interest. Once finalized, we will provide more information on the track meet locations and dates.
