We encourage a positive attitude, good sportsmanship, and self discipline. Each athlete, regardless of experience, will have an opportuntiy to learn the sport and develop their skills. Whether athletes are competing at the local, state, national, or international level, LCTC will provide an environment for our athletes to flourish.

Practices are NOT mandatory. We acknowledge that in this day and age our kids are on the go all the time and are involved in numerous activities. We want this program to be what you desire for it to be.
Practices will start with going through different warm ups followed by a workout for the different events and age groups. The competive team will break into groups based on their desired events. They will work in small groups with coaches to complete their workouts and skill development.
The recreational team will break into age groups and go through stations to promote exercise and fitness. We will slowly introduce some field events and relays.
We desire for this to be a fun experience so we will try and be creative in making it fun and exciting, but we will also want to challenge them to push themselves to do things they may have never done before.
The competive team will provide an opportunity for the athletes to compete at all levels of the sport in the events of their choice. Each athlete will have the opportunity to learn and build technical expertise in their desired event. They will also have the opportunity to compete in all USATF meets at the state, local, and national level. Practice and competition will be similar to that of a high school track and field team
The recreational team is designed to promote fitness and introduce the sport of track and field. The athletes will be introduced to short runs, jumps, and each specific track event. There will be a chance to compete in a low key meet at the end of the session. The recreational team is not eligible to compete in any USATF meet with club affiliation. Practice and competition will be similar to a junior high field day.
Should a recreational athelete want to join the competitive team they can transfer at any time by paying the difference for the full club registration fee.
The first practice will be Monday April, 10th and will go all the way to end of Jul;y for those competing in Junior Olympics. Junior Olympics are in Lawrence, Kansas this year which will give our athletes local access to the biggest meet in the country. For those not wishing to compete past the state level, practice will end on June 18th You may choose to be done at any point throughout the season.
