The entire BHC Track Team will practice primarily on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm at Pasadena High School Track. Early in the season, the coaches will work with the kids to perform a Runner Evaluations. This evaluation will help guide the coaches and assist the parents in understanding the best approach to make this Track and Field season a positive experience for their children. The evaluation will focus on the running ability of the child, their athletic experience level, their time available, and their personal goal for this track season. With this information, the coaches can make an assessment of the best training approach and level of competition for each child and share that recommendation with the parents.
After the assessment, the majority of the team will fall into an âIntermediate Teamâ that will practice with the entire combined team once a week on Thursdays. This group will compete, again with the entire team, at around 7 meets depending on how meet qualification goes for them.. A smaller Advanced Teamâ will also be formed this year to pursue a higher level of training and competition. This team will practice with the complete team on Thursdays; they will also have an extra training day on Monday evenings. The Advanced team will be encouraged to compete in five or six additional meets this year against the best of USTAF competition.
The Brotherhood Crusade Youth Sports organization and Track and Field coaches want this season to be a very positive experience for all of our youth athletes â We canât wait to get started!
