Walton Youth Track Club

blue_ruinsThe 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.

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.

Registration for 2015 Cross Country Season is open as of July 18th for all NEW runners.

This season, our registration will proceed similar to the most recent Track & Field season. You will begin registration by filling out your athlete’s information ONLINE to reserve your spot. Then, you will mail in hard copies of signed waivers, a check for the registration fee, and USATF membership information. Spots will be held until 5 calendar days after online reservation. If we have not received your hard copies and fee by then, your spot may be forfeited to someone on the waiting list.

We look forward to a smooth registration process and a great season!

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
