The program is open to athletes K - 6th grade. Track athletes participate with their age group in a variety of individual running, relay and field events. 5th and 6th grade athletes also compete as a team against other Greater Cincinnati Track Programs.
Registration for the program opens on January 1 and closes on February 23.
The Track Program does allow athletes who are participating in other Spring sports to participate in the Track Program provided parents communicate with the program director about scheduling conflicts in advance of practices and meets.
Each athlete will receive a team shirt and a team warm-up and be entered in six multi-team invitational track meets which will take place on Saturdays starting in April with the final Meet held in May.
Most practices will be held at the Indian Hill High School Track on 2 nights per week. Other practices are typically held at Cincinnati Country Day, less than 1 mile away.
