I am super excited about the 2024 track season. As we are 10 days away from the start of the season, I hope your athletes are also excited. If they have not started getting ready, please ensure they have a good pair of running shoes and they are drinking plenty of water. Stretching exercises are always good. Walking or running outside or on a treadmill will also help. We are looking forward to seeing you all at Pratt Park on March 11, 2024, at 5:30 pm.

URGENT PRICE CHANGE!!!
