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 IS CLOSED FOR 2019 SPRING TRACK AND FIELD. Thank you for your understanding. We have reached our maximum number of athletes. 2019 Cross Country registration will open this summer.
Families can access the registration information for Cross Country in the fall when it opens this summer 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 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 group in mid August.
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 2019. FPYC does not enter athletes in these winter meets. Familes may do so themselves if interested.
