Spring Track/Field

2020 Track & Field Schedule 

See the Practice & Meet Locations tab for addresses and links to directions to the parks for practices and meets. Meet schedules and any additional location information will be made available prior to meets under Spring Season Updates.  The meet flyers from prior seasons are available under Running Documents

This schedule is subject to change based on receipt of field and track permits. Any changes will be updated here and sent to the team via team email once the season has begun.  Additionally, as more information becomes available regarding the District and Regiona Qualifier schedules, those dates may change. The below dates are based on the typical weekends that those qualifier meets have occurred in prior seasons.  The DMV Challenge meet has been moved earlier this year, so the qualifier meets may move as well. That information has not yet been sent to us. 

The Meet the Coaches Night is an optional event. Families can come and meet some of the coaches and ask questions.

DUE TO COVID-19, the  FPYC spring track and field season was cancelled. This schedule is remaining posted to allow families to see the general plan for 2021. Meets dates will be adjusted and re-posted in 2021.   We will post a schedule for 2021 as soon as we can.
