Thank you for entering PVTC's Young Flyers youth track & field program!

See you on Sunday for our in-house track meet!  For complete information, please see www.pvtc.org/youth.html

We thank all the parents who brought snacks these past 10 weeks, and we actually have enough from last week to cover this week!

When you arrive, please pick up your athletes' bib numbers and pin their numbers to the front of their shirt.  Please bring safety pins in case we run short. Also be sure to pick up your young athletes' t-shirts and certificates of completion.

For this meet, it's all hands on deck -- we need parent volunteers to time the races (6 in th 55-meter, 2 in the longer races) and to measure the shot put and turbo-javelin throws.  I'll bring score sheets and clipboards.

We treat it like a real meet, with first call (start forming heats), second call (first heat is about to start), and final call (last heat is about to start).

We even publish results at 20171210.html after the meet.

I invite you to continue your training at our twice-weekly speed workouts at Thomas Jefferson Community Center, 3501 2nd Street South, Arlington VA 22204, every Monday and Wednesday at 7:00 PM sharp.  The workout is always 10 x (200-meter run + 200-meter walk & talk).  I am the coach on most evenings, and Elizabeth Row is coach on the dates when I cannot attend, including this Monday, December 11.  The workout is free, or you may donate $5.00 to the coach.  Both young athletes and adults may participate.  Also, starting on Wednesday, December 13, I shall bring the indoor shots and turbo-javs for continued practice.  For complete information, please see PVTC.org.

Our track meets this winter are January 14, January 28, and February 11, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, at Thomas Jefferson Community Center. These meets are the best opportunity for your young athletes to show off their new skills.  The meets are free for students up to 8th grade and great fun for all. For complete information, please see www.pvtc.org/indoor.html

I also invite you to a new race that I shall direct -- Mary Joy One-Mile Run & Walk, Sunday, December 24, at 12:00 noon at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant, 1621 South Walter Reed Drive, Arlington VA 22204. For complete information, please see www.safetyandhealthfoundation.org/maryjoy
