The Walton Youth Track Club (WYTC) is a track and field and cross country running club for girls and boys ages 5 to 15 which participates in Northwest Georgia Youth Track League, AAU, and USATF sanctioned meets. No prior experience with running competitively is required to participate on the WYTC team.
Registration for the 2014 XC season is under way. New athletes may send an email indicating interest in joining the team to firstname.lastname@example.org. Invitations to register will only be sent out as space allows.
Our Club has two seasons, track and field in the Spring (March-May) and cross country in the Fall (August-October). The WYTC program is designed to introduce kids to sprint and distance running and field events by providing an experience that is fun, competitive, social, and informative about the sport.
For roughly the past 20 years the WYTC has been a recreational running club for serious, self-motivated youth runners that want to work hard, have fun and learn about the sports of cross country and track and field. Through their focus and effort they will improve their performances as runners, which will in turn have a positive impact on their participation in other athletic programs as well. By routinely running between three and seven miles per practice, depending on the group and the stage of the season, WYTC runners will develop the determination and the mental strength to push themselves to achieve their individual performance goals. This discipline and drive will benefit them in other areas of life by demonstrating that they can accomplish things that they previously thought were not possible.
Parents/older siblings, feel free to help out in any way you wish at the practices and the meets
