Uniform Update: The cost of uniforms has risen. Uniforms will be $33 this season. This is the exact cost to the program. We do not generate income from uniform sales. 


See the schedule link for information regarding potential issue with use of Katherine Johnson MS (Lanier) on both Tues. and Thurs. 

Registration is open for the spring season. Families should receive a confirmation email once registration is complete. Registration is not complete if you do not complete the payment and get a confirmation email. A team email will be sent about 4 weeks prior to the start of the season. This will be a general "your registration has been received if you are receiving this email" message. If you don't get an email of this nature, contact us. More detailed info will come about a week before the season starts. If you have specific questions that are not answered in the FAQ or other sections of the website, then email the directors at running@fpycsports.com. 

Running Prep: At least one month prior to the start of the season, you should have your child begin running if they have not been running. Have them start with a walk/run/walk/run cycle and work up to running more of the time. Athletes will run at the first practice and if they have not been running at all it will be much more challenging and frustrating for them. There are many on the team who have been participating for many years and do train on a regular basis. This is not required. All levels are welcome. You can take your child to a track outside of school times and see how far they can run around the track without stopping. The more your child is prepared for the season, they more they will enjoy it without feeling as though they are far behind others. 

Cross Country

USATF XC Championships were help in Paris, KY. It was cold and muddy. We had 2 athletes participate. We had 5 athletes participate in the AAU XC Championships in Charlotte, NC. Congrats to all on their efforts.

Virginia Middle School State Championship Meet. FPYC girls won the overall title out of 19 teams. FPYC boys got 6th of 23 teams. Here is a photo of Hannah Hawkins and Keira Arenholz with the team trophy. 


 

Paige Loomis, Former FPYC Runner and Assistant Coach, WT Woodson HS Runner/Graduate '21, now attending the University of Delaware, completed her Girl Scout Gold Award Project this summer. Part of her project was creating videos of running drills, stretches, and strengthening exercises. These videos are now available to view. Thank you, Paige! 

The YouTube video links have been placed under Running Documents on the FPYC running page. The pdf is here: Paige Loomis Girl Scout Gold Award Project to Benefit Runners 


2021 Fall Cross Country Parent/Team Meeting Document. Click here.

When you register your child, it is recommended that you enter email addresses for all adults who should get the emails. Details about the fall season will be sent via mass team emails starting approx 1.5 weeks prior to the season start date in August. Details will be posted here prior to team emails being sent. If you have not received an email by August 13th, please email us so we can try and figure out why your email has not received messages. The system does not alert us if an email address is unable to receive our emails so we have no way of knowing. Please check with other family members who should have also received emails.

Parent Meeting: We will skip the parent meeting on the first day of practice. The "Parent Meeting Document" for cross country will be accessible under Running Documents and is available above.

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 as appropriate.

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. FPYC does not enter athletes in these winter meets. Familes may do so themselves if interested. We are unsure of the status of these events due to the pandemic.
