Welcome to MARA Track


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

Spring Track will begin Tuesday, April 13 with a tentative end-date of May 22 (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.
