General Information

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. Track & Field serves as excellent conditioning for other sports (e.g. soccer, basketball, hockey), helps build confidence and is a great way to reduce screen/couch time! 

Two programs offered: Recreational or Competitive

Recreational Track

Recreational Track offers practices 2x's per week: on Monday and Thursday (6-7:30 PM).  The program is designed to be flexible, and the athlete attends the practices that they can. Recreational meets are offered but not required.

Competitive Track

Athletes in Competitive Track practice 3x per week: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (6-7:30 PM). Practice will be dedicated specifically to competitive track and field athletes who plan to run in USATF and/or AAU sanctioned meets. Athletes in this group should commit to participate in at least 2 meets for the summer and will have several options to choose from in both a recreational and competitive (Junior Olympics, AAU, USATF) setting during the season. 

ERAA Track Coaches have USATF coaching certifications, are former DI-III college/HS athletes and/or have previous track coaching experience.

Season runs May 2nd to July 25th (or beginning in June for High School team runners) 

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 early May and continues through the end of July. 


The 2023 Summer Track & Field Season runs from May-July. Registration will open in early spring.
