- Our Track & Field program gives children who enjoy running and field events an opportunity to develop their skills while being part of a team. Children from 1st grade through 8th grade practice from mid-March until late May, we practice once per week at a nearby track.
- The children get an opportunity to try various Track & Field events depending on their age: 50M Dash, 100M Dash, 200M Dash, 400M Dash, 800M, 1600M, 400 Meter Relay (4 x 100), 800M Relay (4 x 200), high jump, running long jump, standing long jump, shot put.
- We will have one preliminary meet held on a Saturday to qualify for finals. It will be against children from many other St. Louis area parishes. The CYC Finals Meet will be held on a Saturday in late-May for those who qualify.
The SGM Majella Club provides a track dri-fit type t-shirt for all Track & Field participants that they keep at the end of the season. The athletes have an option to purchase matching shorts or they can wear black or green shorts.
A parent (or another adult) is required to help at all meets. Below is a list of tasks:
- Track Events
- Running Events
All parents or guardians are encouraged to volunteer in our track program as a coach or practice/game helper, or party organizer. It is a major help to the program if you are able to simply point the kids in the right direction. Please ask the Track Commissioner what you can do to help!
See the Volunteer Requirements Section if you are interested in being involved with this sport.
