The Track and Field program from Dulles Youth Sports will run from around spring break to the end of May. Practices will be twice a week at Lunsford and typical practice length will be one hour. Please consider volunteering as a coach or assistant! Please email
if you are interested. All volunteers receive full or partial registration fee waivers.
Our goal is to offer two options for participants:
A program geared for younger runners for grades 1st to 3rd. Runners will attend one practice a week and the focus will be on running, sprinting, and relays. An introduction to jumping will also be included. Field events and hurdles will not be a focus. Junior Track will meet once a week. We are in need of a coach for Junior Track! Please email
if you are interested.
Track and Field
The Track and Field program will be for grades 4 to 8. We will provide weekly focus areas where we spend a portion of the practice introducing athletes to each event.
Short distances - 50, 100, 200, and 400 meters
Middle distances - 800, 1500 meters
Long distance - 3000 meters
Relays - 4x100, 4x400
Hurdles - 100, 400 meters
Jumps - Introduction to long jump and high jump
Field events - Introduction to shotput, discus, javelin
All track and field participants will participate in two regional competitive meets. Full details on meets and practices will be communicated directly to the team rather than posted to the web site.
We need volunteers! No experience is necessary. Please email
if you are interested. Volunteering can be as simple as helping with practice or the meets. If you have any experience with track and field, consider volunteering as a coach! It is a great way to get in shape and participate in the community.
