Island Express Track Club welcomes new runners. It is expected that all athletes attend practice on Tuesday and Thursday AND compete on weekends. We do not compete EVERY weekend, but we do compete often. Our schedule is posted before each season begins. All kids grades 1-8 are accepted. Approximate dates for Seasons: Fall Season- Sept. 1st. – Nov. 30th (National Championship 1st and sec. week in Dec.); Winter Season- December 1st. -March 15th (National Championship 1st week in March); Spring Season- April 1st – June 30th. Youth competitions typically take place in two-year age divisions. These age divisions provide young athletes the opportunity to compete with other athletes of similar ability.
