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 - $125
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 - $175
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 2022 Summer Track & Field Season registration is now closed. However, there are some limited openings for those in 8th grade through a Senior in High School (ages 13-17). To inquire about these openings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For all others, we will not be taking any more registrations this year. We look forward to having you join us in 2023!
