On March 25, 2020 the AAU posted the following: The AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th.

The health and well-being of athletes, coaches, and their families is always the AAU’s top priority. Along with the rest of the world, we have continued to closely monitor the developing COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) situation.

After reviewing the latest CDC guidelines and in consultation with local officials, the AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th. This is a decision that the AAU organization did not make lightly but one we strongly feel is in the best interest of everyone involved in AAU events.

These are unprecedented times that have called for unprecedented measures. Nonetheless, we know this is the right decision. We must continue to do our part to keep our communities safe and healthy until such a time that we resume AAU event programing. It is truly our hope that we can get back to running AAU events in the very near future after this extension. We will continue to consult with local officials and health experts to ensure that the safety of AAU athletes, coaches, and their families is not compromised.

Since 1888, the AAU has been the industry leader in the amateur sports marketplace. Moving forward, we remain committed to providing the very best athletic opportunities to all who play AAU sports and will continue to provide updates as additional information becomes available. Thank you for your continued participation in AAU.

We will continue to monitor and make a decision about how we will proceed with the remainder of the season.

Practice Update

Posted by 2nd To None Track and Field Club at Mar 22, 2020 11:56AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Family,

Although we have received guidance regarding practice not being suspended by Mr. William Moore the AAU Region 5 Track and Field District Sports Director, we have decided to continue to suspend practice until Thursday, April 2nd. This decision was made to ensure that we continue to protect our athletes and family during this crisis. May the Lord continue to keep you and your family safe.

The attached workout should be included this week to the previous posted mileage and hills posted last week.

Practice Guidance Update!

Posted by Kenneth Williams at Mar 20, 2020 7:19AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

We recently received more guidance from Mr. William Moore the AAU Region 5 Track and Field District Sports Director. He informed us that Practice, although not a sanctioned event, is not suspended but must adhere to the 10 person mandate imposed by government. I will wait until Sunday to send out information regarding resuming practice to ensure that nothing else Statewide or locally comes out that may conflict with this guidance.

Today will be a beautiful day to get out with your Athlete. Take them to Pratt Park and utilize the following workout plan:

Ages 6-9yrs = 1 Mile Warmup + 1 Mile Cool Down: total: 2miles
6 Hill Runs between Miles

Ages 10 – 17= 1 Mile Warmup + 1 Mile + 1 Mile Cool Down; total: 3 Miles

This crisis will pass and we need them to be ready!!! Continue to exercise social distance.

Family,

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing developments regarding COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”), 2nd to none is suspending practice as directed by the AAU President, Dr. Roger J. Goudy until April 2nd, 2020. We anticipate future guidance on or about April 2nd as to how to move forward. In the meantime, we would hate for our athletes to lose the fitness level they have obtained so far. Therefore, we ask you as parents to apply the following training schedule to your athlete

Monday – Thursday and Saturdays or Sundays until we resume organized training.

Monday – Thursday
Ages 6-9yrs = 1 Mile Warmup + 1 Mile Cool Down: total: 2miles
6 Hill Runs between Miles

Ages 10-16yrs = 1 Mile Warmup + 1 additional Mile + 1 Mile cooldown: total: 3 miles
6 Hill Runs between Miles

Friday
REST

Saturday or Sunday

Ages 6-9yrs Mileage= 1 Mile Run
Ages 10-16 Mileage= 2 Miles
Ages 6-9 Sprinters= 10-30 yards 10 Reps with 3mins rest between reps.
Ages 10-16 Sprinters= 10-30 yards 12 Reps with 3mins rest between reps

These are trying times, but with the help of our Lord and Savior we will get through it all. Thank you for understanding.
