Fall Track / Cross Country Comes to Needham Youth Track Club in 2021

NOTE: The Fall 2021program is full for all age groups at both sessions.

The Needham Youth Track Club will hold a combined Fall Track / Cross Country program in the Fall. The program features both Cross Country and track running and field events. Open to children age 5-14, the program will run in two sessions, 9:15 - 10:30 am and 10:40-11:45 am Sundays from September 12 - November 7, 2021 at DeFazio Track and surrounding trails at 360 Dedham Avenue in Needham. The program is divided into teams by
  • Age 5-6
  • Age 7-14 Sprinting (with field events)
  • Age 7-14 Cross Country (with field events)
  • Age 7-14 Cross Country (running only)

Runners will be placed in groups depending on age. The program is suitable for those serious about their running and interested in running in Cross Country meets as well as those with a more casual interest who want exercise and to learn more about running.

We are organized in small teams of 13-16 children and 3-4 coaches. Children remain in this group for the entire session. Typically, children will have one field event or hurdle practice per week (with exception of running only - Cross Country team).

A typical Sunday session might include
- Warm up, flexibility, and mobility
- Running Drills
- Technical skills training
- Fitness training
- Recovery
