Welcome to MYTF's home on the web!
McLean Youth Track and Field is an all-volunteer organization that provides opportunities for Northern Virginia kids ages 5 through 8th grade (13/14) to develop skills competing in track, field, and cross-country running. Our aim is to help our kids develop a love for running, the respect of sportsmanship, and an appreciation for the sport. We focus on "house" events and encourage all of our athletes to strive for personal improvement.
SPRING 2015 REGISTRATION
MYTF Families Past & Prospective:
We are currently planning to open registration for the Spring 2015 season on Saturday, March 14th, at 9:00 am. We apologize for the relatively late notice, but we have had a real challenge getting facility space secured this season, and we needed some assurances that we’d be able to have a season before announcing registration. Unfortunately, we still don’t have everything finalized, but we’ll tell you what we do know, and we’ll hope most things will be resolved prior to registration opening.
This season, due to the unavailability of Langley High School, we have faced significant competition for facility space at which to hold our Meets. As of right now, there is about 90% certainty that our Meets this season will be SATURDAY afternoons (NOT Sunday, as in the past) at Falls Church High School. We are still waiting for the County to confirm how much time we’ll have, which will determine the structure of the Meets. At this time, we do NOT have any information about practice days and times. Our season is slated to begin with practices (not the first Meet, as in past seasons!) the week of April 7th, following FCPS’ Spring Break. Our first Meet will then hopefully be Saturday, April 11th.
We realize this change in Meet times poses challenges for many of you because of obligations to other sports, and we understand that means we may lose a few of you for at least this season. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing we could do about it; believe us, we have tried. We also know it’s frustrating to not have full schedules, practice times, etc. but again, it is out of our control and frankly, not very different from many other sports where you have to register without knowing what day your practice will be or what times your games are. We are doing everything we can behind the scenes to make as much information available as possible prior to registration, but ultimately, we have to open (and close) registration in enough time to be able to prepare for the season. Now that we know we will be able to have some kind of season, we need to make plans to move forward with it.
Thank you all for your patience and support, and we hope we’ll still be able to see most of you this Spring. Further announcements confirming the registration dates and providing detailed instructions will follow in the coming days.
