The Track & Field program offers training and competition opportunities for all school-age youth. We provide instruction in every event offered by USA Track & Field according to age group. With practices beginning in in late March, some of the events that our track & field team members can compete in are:
* Sprints -- 100 & 200 meters
* Middle distance -- 400 & 800 meter run
* Distance -- 1500 & 3000 meter run
* Relay Races
* High Jump, Long Jump, & Triple Jump
* Shot Put, Discus Throw, & Javelin Throw
Some more advanced athletes may compete in more advanced events such as the pole vault, with parental approval and additional equipment expense. Whether you want to improve your running form, build speed and endurance, have fun through vigorous exercise, learn a field event, enjoy competition, or just to have fun in an outdoor environment, we hope to see you on the track!
the cross country season will start the Tuesday after Labor Day register at vyi.org
starting in Late July.
this is VYI's fall running program, geared to those that like distance running and we compete against theother teams in the area in 2 km to 4 km races based on age.
The Cross Country program offers team races on a grass or wooded course of varied terrain. Training also involves running through the neighborhoods around Nottoway Park, off-road running, and some track work. Members acquire valuable racing skills, including team strategy, pacing, surging, and final kick. Cross Country is also excellent conditioning for other winter and spring sports.
We typically go to the USATF's national championship meet series, but look at AAU for track or x-c and CCCNYC for x-c if they are more located close to us geographically.
