2021 Track and Field Season and Fall Cross Country Updates
2021 Fall Cross Country Parent/Team Meeting Document. Click here.
2021 Fall Cross Country Registration will open in mid-June. At this point we are not expecting to have to limit the number of participants or exclude the 5-6 age group. Parent volunteers for coaching register as an adult volunteer.
When you register your child, it is recommended that you enter email addresses for all adults who should get the emails. Details about the fall season will be sent via mass team emails starting approx 1.5 weeks prior to the season start date in August. Details will be posted here prior to team emails being sent. If you have not received an email by August 13th, please email us so we can try and figure out why your email has not received messages. The system does not alert us if an email address is unable to receive our emails so we have no way of knowing. Please check with other family members who should have also received emails.
Volunteer Needed: We are looking for someone with Hytek/Meet Manager experience Excel knowledge or willingness to learn to begin training for the spring 2022. We have 1 more season (2021 Cross Country) with our awesome data/meet result volunteer. After her departure, we need a volunteer for this job. She has created a document to explain the tasks involved in setting up the meets and how to use the program. The helper can assist over the spring season to become familiar with the processes. Please email the directors at email@example.com if you are willing to volunteer for this task.
Parent Meeting: We will skip the parent meeting on the first day of practice. The "Parent Meeting Document" for track and field or cross country will be accessible under Running Documents on the website closer to the start of the season. Much of the information is already available on the website.
Meet Flyers/Schedules/Order of Events: The meet flyers from past Cross Country and Track & Field meets have been posted under "Running Documents." Families can review the meet details if you are trying to plan your weekends. We will post updated meet flyers as appropriate.
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. FPYC does not enter athletes in these winter meets. Familes may do so themselves if interested. We are unsure of the status of these events due to the pandemic.
