The Juniata Valley Striders Spring Track & Field Program will hold sign-up on Monday, March 25th at 6 PM at the MCSD Track & Field Complex.
Practice will run from 6-7:30 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings with the first practice beginning on the first Monday in April. USATF Membership and a signed waiver are needed to participate in the program which will offer several local meets and an opportunity to participate in USATF post-season meets.

The program is for youth 7-14 years of age interested in Track & Field (running, sprinting, hurdling, jumps, and throws). Practice involves warm up, skill development, conditioning, and warm down. Practices are not mandatory but highly recommended. We will offer several inter-squad meets (free), several local meets (with a registration fee), and USATF Competition (with competition standards and a registration fee). Coaches have USATF clearances and certifications in track and field.
