Welcome to MARA Track

Welcome to MARA Track! We are excited to share details about our program and our upcoming Fall session. Registration is now open and will close Aug 24th

Fall Track will begin Thursday, August 18 with an end-date of September 22

Monday and Thursday evening practices will be held at Trifecta athletics gym or field from 6-7:00PM. We will focus on speed, conditioning, strength training and performance specific skills. 

We will end the season with a competitive track meet covering 100m, 200m, 400m, 1500m, relays, long jump and High jump. 

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, base to base running and 40 yard dash training
  • 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 the weather) and will culminate with an end-of-season track meet tentatively at the Charlotte Christian School's track. Our program is targeted toward athletes ages 6-14.  The cost of the Fall session is $160. Please contact Coach LaKisha Williams if you have any questions. 

We will have an informational meeting via zoom August 15 at 6:30pm
