Spring Track & Field Season

groupThe Walton Youth Track Club is a track and field club for girls and boys in elementary, middle and high school, which participates in USATF sanctioned meets. No prior experience with running competitively is required to participate on the WYTC team.

Regular track and field practices take place twice during the week, generally on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and once on the weekend, generally on Sundays, at locations around East Cobb. Details about specific practice times and locations will be announced with registration details. Our club will participate in 4 to 5 developmental meets, which will take place on Saturdays in April and May. WYTC also participates in the USATF Junior Olympic series of competitive meets, which take place through the summer, culminating in the Junior Olympic National Championship.
