Year Round

The Junior Olympic (JO) Team trains year round with the goal of qualifying and competing in the USA Track & Field Junior Olympics for both Cross Country and Track.  We compete in Junior Olympic Groups 2-4, Ages 9-14.

New members are welcome any time during the year. We find that some students have a wait-and-see attitude but once they see their friends have fun and are successful, they eventually give our sport a chance.

Our training program is set up on a few basic principles. It should be FUN. Each athlete should train at a level that he/she can handle. It is based on continual growth over several years. You will have to run 4 to 6 days a week to be ready.  When you have that kind of commitment level over several weeks and months then your JO season will be a successful one.

Pre-Season: Summer & Winter

When the  High School Cross Country and Track seasons end, our training begins.

The main goal of Pre-Season training is to further improve the individual bio-motors skills - Speed, Strength, Flexibility, Coordination and Endurance. You will learn the tools to take with you into your next season, where all these elements are utilized to methodically build aerobic strength through a progression of peak performances.

  3. Are you considering making the leap from recreational to competitive runner?

  4. Do you want to move up to the next level of competition, from middle-of-the-pace race to age group winner or even top local competitor?
