Welcome to MARA Track

MARA Track is excited to open registration for our Winter Track & Field Session, with practices starting January 22.

Coach LaKisha Williams and her team will train your athlete in running endurance and performance, focusing on sprinting, middle distances and several field events (long jump, high jump). Our goal is to train your athlete to race to their appropriate age level, building stamina, resilience and character. Athletes will also be taught proper pre-race and race-day nutrition, hydration, and dynamic stretching to warm up and cool down before and after races.

• Ages 7-13 years old (as of December 1, 2021)
• Practices will start Saturday, January 22 and run until March 5
• The program is limited to the first 30 athletes to sign up
• All athletes will participate in an end-of-season MARA cross-country meet
• Athletes ages 8 and up will have the opportunity to join our team in competing in two AAU-sponsored track meets:
            * SIYL Invitational in Winston Salem - Feb. 12
            * Coach O Invitational (location TBD) - Feb. 26
            (Dates and locations subject to change at the will of meet organizers)

The cost of the program is $175.00, consisting of 10 sessions and the end-of-season meet. AAU track meets will require an additional registration fee, typically $10-$18 per meet. If your athlete does not compete in the AAU meets, we will have coaches leading practices per usual.

Practices are Wednesday evenings 6-7:00pm at the MARA Football field and Saturday mornings 10-11am at the Charlotte Christian School track.

You may email MARA Track Commissioner Tania Erman at [email protected] with any questions.
