McLean Youth Track and Field provides Northern Virginia kids (ages 5 through middle school) with opportunities to learn about, compete in and develop a love for track and field.

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. 

MYTF is a diverse, inclusive program for all children in Northern Virginia, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, gender identification, ability (mental or physical), religion, national origin, financial circumstance, or sexual orientation.  MYTF athletes compete according to the gender which with they identify, may use physical adaptive equipment not otherwise prohibited by the facility, and may wear (properly secured) garments consistent with their religious observances.  We welcome ALL children and their families, and we cheer for everyone!
UPDATE:  7/10/17
MYTF is thrilled to announce that we have had SEVEN MYTF athletes qualify for JO Regionals in TEN Junior Olympics events!  Congratulations to the following athletes, all but two of whom are planning to attend the Regional event in North Carolina later this summer:
Jackie Beyer (Shot Put)
Paula Cox (High Jump)
Chase Greenberg (1500M)
Jonas Knudson (Javelin)
Sophie Knudson (Long Jump, Shot Put, and Turbojav - 1st place in TurboJav - way to go, Sophie!)
Landon Moore (Shot Put and TurboJav - 2nd in the TurboJav - way to go, Landon!)
Nathan Pearce (1500M)

Good luck to our MYTF JOers!!



Registration instructions are as follows:

Registration Details
Registration opens precisely (we hope) at 9:00 am on Saturday morning, July 15, 2017.  You will not see the Registration button or menu on our website prior to that time, but please be assured that it will appear at 9:00 am once the system opens (in our experience, the system time is not "Verizon time," so it may be 9:02 until you see the appropriate buttons...).  We have had some technological issues in the past where it hasn’t switched on as planned; please know that if/when that happens, we are in a mad scramble to get it fixed as quickly as possible, and we usually have it corrected within 5-10 minutes, so please be patient and keep refreshing your page every few minutes.   
Regardless of whether or not we are full, Registration will close on Sunday, July 30th, at 11:59 pm.  Because of the need to establish the rosters for the County, to order supplies, prepare materials for the season, etc., MYTF does not accept late registrations.  Please note that we DO often fill up before the registration deadline, so please plan to register as early in the window as you able.  If we do fill up before the 30th, we will keep a waitlist, but cannot guarantee a spot will open up.  Waitlisted participants will be informed no later than Friday, August 25th, if they have been moved to a rostered position, so that we can submit a final roster to the County prior to starting. We will not make any additions to the roster after Friday, August 25th, 2017.
  • Once Registration is live, you will see both a “Register NOW” button and a lefthand-side Menu option for a “Registration” page on the main homepage for  Click either to get to the Registration page.
  • If you already have an account with MYTF, you’ll use that same login and password.  If you have a child in another McLean Youth Athletics sport that also uses the League Athletics website (including basketball, volleyball, rugby, and in previous seasons, flag football), it is the SAME login and password.  If you do not remember your password, you can request a reset (it is automated, and should occur within a few minutes).  If you do not remember your login, please email   to request a full reset of your account, but please know that it may take several minutes (or more!) to process.
  • If you do NOT already have an account, it only takes a quick minute to sign up, so please don’t be panicked that it will somehow slow down your registration such that you miss out on getting a space.  Unfortunately, you cannot create an account on the site UNTIL Registration goes live, but again, it is a very quick and simple process.
  • Registration is open to children who are will be at least 5 years old as of September 30th, 2017 (i.e., aligned with Virginia public school enrollment) and no older than age 14/in 8th grade this year.  Birthdates MUST be between October 29, 2003 and September 30, 2012, and be 8th grade or below.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Please register ALL siblings who intend to participate in MYTF.  ONLY registered, rostered athletes are allowed on the Track or Field during the season at both practices and Meets, and we cannot make accommodations to add siblings after registration is full or closed, so please register all your kids at once if more than one will be interested in running this season.
  • You MUST pay registration fees electronically by credit card (i.e., no checks), and it is preferred that you pay at the time of registration.  Due to the high demand for space on our roster in past seasons, MYTF policy is that if you have registered but not paid within 72 hours, you will be notified and given 24 additional hours to pay, after which point any unpaid registrations will be deleted from the system.  
  • If we do fill all spaces prior to the close of registration and you are waitlisted:  you do NOT have to pay registration fees until or unless you are moved to a rostered position (i.e., taken off the waitlist). Once you are notified that you have been moved from the waitlist to the roster, you will have 48 hours to pay the registration fees, after which point any unpaid registrations are forfeited and we will move to the next child(ren) on the waitlist.
  • Registration fees for this season will be the same as the Spring 2017 season: $60 for the first child registered, and $40 for all siblings.
  • Refund requests MUST be made prior to the closing of registration on July 30th, 2017.  You may decide to withdraw your child(ren) from MYTF for any reason at any point during the season, but registration fees will not be refunded unless the withdrawal request is made prior to midnight on Sunday, July 30th. Refund requests MUST be emailed to  ; please include "refund request" in the subject line.  We will not honor any refund requests made after July 30th, although you are certainly able to withdraw at any time during the season.  This is in keeping with most other area sports leagues’ policies.  Due to the rush of activity in preparing for the season, we will not process refund requests until the season is underway, but as long as your request is made prior to the deadline, you should expect to see the fees refunded to your credit card by the end of September.
  • There are NO late registrations (NO exceptions!), so if you will be out of town or otherwise unable to register during the three-week open window, PLEASE make arrangements with a neighbor or friend to do registration for you.  Please make sure that anyone doing registration has your child(ren)’s full name and correct birthdate, and parent contact info available.
  • Finally, please understand that while we do monitor Registration live, there is usually ONE volunteer handling ALL troubleshooting, so please be patient as we handle the multitude of questions and snafus that need to be worked through come 9:00 am.  We will get to you, we will do it as quickly as we can, we have never sold out in the first hour so you’re probably going to be fine, and if not, we will most likely make an accommodation for you if we can’t fix you immediately, so please don’t panic.  ;)
As always, PLEASE feel free to email us here at   (or using the contact link on our website,  We are happy to answer whatever we can!  We will also continue to provide updates about the season and schedule as we are able, and we make every effort to make that information available through both email and the website, now and throughout the season.
Thank you for patiently wading through all of that information, and we are genuinely excited to see everyone for the Fall 2017 season!
