2020 Spring Track and Field Season Updates
This Friday, May 15th, is the last day for spring season track and field fee reimbursement requests. Multiple team emails have been sent with the details on how to make your choice for your fees. After May 15th, your spring fees will be considered a donation to FPYC.
Our Spring Track & Field season has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19. We look forward to seeing many families back for Cross Country. We are sad to have our 8th graders miss out on their last FPYC season but look forward to seeing their progress and accomplishments in high school.
Spring Track and Field Registration for 2020 is CLOSED. Our practices have started, and we reached a number of athletes above which we do not feel we can accommodate. Please note the in the future we may close reg. up to a week ahead of time. We are sorry to the families that would like to join but cannot this season.
Meet Flyers/Schedules/Order of Events: The meet flyers from past Cross Country and Track & Field meets have been posted under "Running Documents." Families can review the meet details if you are trying to plan your weekends. We will post updated meet flyers for 2020 when we receive them.
SCHEDULE: The spring track and field schedule for 2020 has been posted. The fall 2019 cross country schedule will stay online until the 2020 cross country schedule is posted in early summer. The schedule looks very same from yr. to yr. with some adjustments to meet dates.
FIELD EVENTS: Our ability to have field events at practices and meets is directly related to the availability of coaches/parents who have experience in these events (shot put, mini-javelin, and long jump) and/or are willing to learn about these events. If you have experience, please consider volunteering as a coach.
We respectfully ask that parents/guardians consult the website links for information about the program. Additionally, the list of FAQ on the main running webpage provides answers to many common questions. If you are unable to find the answers to your questions on the website, please feel free to contact the directors. Thank you.
Registration for the FPYC 2020 spring track and field season is CLOSED. Please check the FPYC registration tab for details. Cross Country registration will open this summer. There will be walk-in registration dates as well as online registration. Walk-in registration is required for check and cash payments as well as for those applying for a reduced fee scholarship registration. Please check on the registration tab for details.
Families can access the registration information for Track & Field (spring) or cross country (fall) through the main FPYC webpage. When registering, please take care to correctly enter your email contacts, preferably two, if possible. If the email is not entered correctly, you will not receive the team email updates, and we have no way of knowing if your email address does not receive the team emails sent. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY TEAM EMAILS WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE START OF THE SEASON, PLEASE EMAIL THE DIRECTORS. YOU WILL GET A CONFIRMATION OF REGISTRATION from FPYC UPON REGISTRATION, BUT THAT IS NOT A TEAM EMAIL. We expect to start contacting the team in late February for track & field and mid-August for cross country.
WINTER RUNNING: The FPYC Running program does not manage a winter program. We have fall cross country and spring track and field. The Potomac Valley Track Club does run a series of indoor winter track meets at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center in Arlinton, VA. Interested families can access that information at http://www.pvtc.org/. Both the USATF PVA and AAU have hosted indoor track meets in early March at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD. Information is typically available on the www.coachoregistration.com website when it is updated for 2020. FPYC does not enter athletes in these winter meets. Familes may do so themselves if interested.
