2020 Spring Track and Field Season Updates
See bottom of this message for information about winter running options.
A tentative spring track and field schedule for 2020 will be posted in
January. The 2019 schedule is still online. We expect the 2020 schedule will look very similar to the 2019 schedule with practices on Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday, and then meets on the weekends.
FIELD EVENTS: Our ability to have field events at practices and meets is directly related to the availability of coaches/parents who have experience in these events (shot put, mini-javelin, and long jump) and/or are willing to learn about these events. If you have experieince, please consider volunteering as a coach.
We respectfully ask that parents/guardians consult the website links for information about the program. Additionally, the list of FAQ on the main running webpage provides answers to many common questions. If you are unable to find the answers to your questions on the website, please feel free to contact the directors. Thank you.
Registration for the FPYC 2020 spring track and field season will open in early 2020. Please check the FPYC registration tab for details in the new year. There will be walk-in registration dates as well as online registration. Walk-in registration is required for check and cash payments as well as for those applying for a reduced fee scholarship registration. Please check back on the registration tab for details. If there are no details/dates when you look, you will need to check back at a later date.
Families can access the registration information for Track & Field through the main FPYC webpage. When registering, please take care to correctly enter your email contacts, preferably two, if possible. If the email is not entered correctly, you will not receive the team email updates, and we have no way of knowing if your email address does not receive the team emails sent. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY TEAM EMAILS WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF THE START OF THE SEASON OR WITHIN 1 WEEK OF SIGNING UP, PLEASE EMAIL THE DIRECTORS. YOU WILL GET A CONFIRMATION OF REGISTRATION from FPYC UPON REGISTRATION, BUT THAT IS NOT A TEAM EMAIL. We expect to start contacting the team in mid to late February.
WINTER RUNNING: The FPYC Running program does not manage a winter program. We have fall cross country and spring track and field. The Potomac Valley Track Club does run a series of indoor winter track meets at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center in Arlinton, VA. Interested families can access that information at http://www.pvtc.org/. Both the USATF PVA and AAU have hosted indoor track meets in early March at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD. Information is typically available on the www.coachoregistration.com website when it is updated for 2020. FPYC does not enter athletes in these winter meets. Familes may do so themselves if interested.
