Welcome to MARA Track

Coach LaKisha Williams and her assistant coaches are pleased to announce Open Registration for our Winter Track program at MARA. Athletes will have an opportunity to find their gift and talent on the track and in the field.  The coaching staff will work with athletes to learn proper warm-up and stretching routines, develop their sprinting and distance-running skills, and get an introduction to field events such as shot put and long jump.  

 

You can expect our coaches to:

 

- Provide respectful, positive, and fun track-learning experience

- Improve each athlete's technical skills, leadership skills, and conditioning

- Improve each athlete's understanding of track as a team AND individual sport

- Improve each athlete's personal records

- Encourage each athlete to make friends and have fun during their experience

- Introduce Plyometric training

- Explain and improve body control

- Increase each athlete's flexibility, coordination, and endurance

- Encourage each athlete to demonstrate leadership skills

 

 

The 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 Charlotte Christian School’s track. Our program is targeted toward athletes ages 6-13.  The cost for the Winter session is $140.00. The program is scheduled to begin Tuesday, February 18 at 6 pm with the track meet currently scheduled for Saturday, April 4 (subject to change due to CCS Track Schedule - will confirm once session begins). 

 

All Tuesday practices will be at the MARA football field from 6:00-7:00 pm. All Saturday practices will be located at the Charlotte Christian School track/football stadium from 10:00 am – 11:30.  No uniform is required, however athletes should wear gym/phys ed. type clothing and comfortable, well-fitting running shoes. Please contact Tania Erman, MARA Track Commissioner, at [email protected] with any questions.
