Practices and Uniforms

FIRST PRACTICE and PARENT MEETING: 
Our first day of practice is Monday April 11th. We will be having our parent meeting during the first Saturday practice on April 16th.

The season runs from mid-April through early July, with Regional and National qualifiers able to compete through July.

Practice
Practices are Monday, Thursday and Saturday at Riverside Junior High 10910 Eller Road. Enter in the southern most drive way and follow it behind the school where the track is. Please DO NOT drop your athlete off. Please plan to stay nearby as we have injuries or inclement weather we may need you to pick up your athlete quickly. All practices will be at Riverside unless we inform you otherwise. Once meets start on Saturdays we will no longer be holding practices on Saturdays. 

Monday Practice from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Thursday Practice from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Saturday Practice 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Uniforms/Spirit Wear
Order your uniform (singlet + shorts) at www.fishersfire.spiritsale.com (and check out the other spirit wear we have for parents & athletes!) The uniforms are the same uniforms from last year so if you’re a veteran runner and it still fits you’re all set! There will be 2 opportunities for you to see sizing or try on samples; March 2, 2022 6pm-8pm at the Community Room in the Billericay building 12690 Promise Rd, Fishers or at the first Saturday Fire practice after the parent meeting April 16th 10am-11:30am.

The deadline to get your Fire order in is April 30th. Orders will not run until May1st, if you order early it gives you peace of mind but the merchandise won’t get to you any faster. There are no returns or exchanges so please take advantage of the uniform try-on opportunities. For merchandise specific questions please email [email protected].

Running Shoes
Please ensure that your athlete(s) have proper running shoes for track & field.  Basketball shoes & high tops make is difficult to sprint, jump & run in!  Spikes are NOT required, but if you have some for your athlete, we will incorporate spikes into practices prior to meets. Mudsock Youth Athletics sponsors a discount day at Dick’s Sporting Goods, March 26th. Dick’s at Hamilton Towne Center is aware there will be lots of kids looking for running shoes so there will be an associate on hand with the ability to help complete a purchase online using the coupon, if necessary. Keep an eye out in your email for that coupon from MYA!

Volunteer

Asst. Coaches/Volunteers

We have a need for assistant coaches in the areas of sprinting, long jump, high jump and all throwing events. You do not have to have experience in these areas just a willingness to help the kiddos and a background check through Mudsock Youth Athletics. If you are able to help please email [email protected] and let us know what events you’re interested in. If we don’t get a few more coaches in these areas we may not be able to offer these events.

Volunteers are needed at each meet to help with bib distribution and helping the long jump official. Again you do not need any prior knowledge on these events just willingness to help! Sign ups for the meet volunteers will come closer to those calendar dates.
