Welcome to MARA Track

Welcome to MARA Track! Our Coaching staff is excited to share details about our program and our upcoming Summer session.

Summer Track will begin Tuesday, June 8 with a tentative end-date of July 17 (not withstanding weather delays)
Tuesday evening practices will be held at the MARA football field from 6-7:00PM
Saturday morning practices will be held at the Charlotte Christian track from 10-11:00AM

The MARA Track program is an excellent opportunity for young athletes to be introduced to the sport of Track & Field, and cross-training for athletes in other sports. Our program focuses on the following:

  • Dynamic stretching before and after each practice
  • Teaching biomechanics for a better understanding of body and muscle movement
  • Sprinting - short bursts for speed
  • Middle Distance - pacing and breath control for longer distances
  • Relays (as Covid-compliance permits)
  • Power drills to increase explosiveness at the starting line
  • Field events - including long jump and high jump
  • Respect - for self, coaches and teammates

The MARA Track program will run for 10 practices over the course of approximately 5-6 weeks (depending on weather), and will culminate with an end-of-season track meet at the Charlotte Christian School's track. Our program is targeted toward athletes ages 6-13.  The cost of the Spring session is $150. Please contact Tania Erman, MARA Track Commissioner, at [email protected] if you have any questions.
