The Glenarden Track Club will begin its 2016 season on March 28, 2016. Practice will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex. Registration will conclude April 21, 2016. Payment will be due no later than 2 weeks from the date that your child begins practice. For registrations done after April 14, payment will be due the day of registration. Uniforms will be issued to all registered athletes on April 19, 2016. The only exception to the deadline will be for those athletes who are currently participating in High School, Junior High School or Private School track programs.
The registration fee for the season is $180.00 for each athlete. The athletes from High School, Junior High School or Private School track programs that register after May 22, 2016 will pay $140.00.
Due to the number of bad checks we received in the past, we will not accept personal checks. This policy will be in effect for the entire season and will include payment for travel, fund-raisers, etc. We will accept cash, money orders or certified checks only.
Registration fee covers costs to register for meets, uniforms, athletic bag (for new athletes only), t-shirt, sweat suit, USAT&F card and miscellaneous items such as Gatorade (which is provided for the athletes at all meets), ointments used to rub the athletes down at meets, batons and other equipment. Any athlete can purchase a new bag for a cost of $40.00. No athlete will receive a uniform until his/her registration fee has been paid.
All athletes must submit a completed medical form and all new athletes must submit a copy of his/her birth certificate within a week of registration. In the past we have had problems receiving these documents, creating problems for the staff in getting athletes registered for meets that require proof-of-age. Also, we use the phone numbers and email addresses from the medical form to create a database that we use for contacting parents when practices have to be canceled.
The staff and members of the Glenarden Track Club would like to thank you for your support, time and efforts in making the 2015 season a success. We look forward to your continued support and another season filled with our young peoples’ accomplishments.
