When does the season begin and what’s the season schedule?

In the Fall, our season generally begins the first week of October. Our Spring Season generally begins at the end of January/early February and continues through late June. Our team athletes also have the option of participating in post-season USA Track and Field Junior Olympic (JO) competitions in the spring. 2016 Track Season Schedule
Registration usually opens in early October for the Fall season and in February/March for the Spring season. Information about the Meet schedule will be available at that time. We will notify all registered emails from the past two Track seasons, as well as others who have specifically requested notification during the year, as to when registration will open, usually a few weeks prior to opening.

What does it cost?

As of the Fall 2016 season, the cost structure is as follows:

  • New Athletes: $285.00 ($235.00 w/o Warm-ups) Includes: Registration/Tac Card, Uniform, Warm-ups, Running Fees & Banquet
  • Returning Athletes: $200.00 Includes: Registration/Tac Card, Running Fees & Banquet
  • Conditioning Package: $210.00 (Only thru end of May) Includes: Registration/Tac Card, Conditioning

ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS

Do you compete against other teams/clubs?

In addition to hosting our own invitational meet — i.e., we invite other track clubs to compete with us. We (BCU) participate in events hosted by other local youth track clubs. We will notify parents of those opportunities as they arise. We do also participate in the Junior Olympics program which provides post-season opportunities for our more competitive kids and does involve competition with other teams from other states. Participation in JO is entirely optional and up to each family.

I don’t have any experience with running or track. Are you sure you want me to help coach at practices?

Definitely!! With so many concurrent tasks operating at the same time during Meets, we can virtually never have too many volunteers, and practices also require a lot of adult assistance. NO specialized skills are required! Many of the practice drills require only adult supervision and instruction, and most do not require coaches to move quickly. We have short and sweet explanations of the various drills and games we play for conditioning, and the more adults participate, the smoother practices run. Likewise, with Meets, we need a multitude of people in various areas, and most jobs require very little instruction to learn. Don’t be shy. We need your help!
