Mudsock Track & Field + XC

Mudsock Track & Field 2023 Overview:

Mudsock Track & Field is excited to offer 1st through 12th graders an opportunity to participate in Track and Field. Our focus will be on fitness, fun and training to participate in meets.

Track meets will include Mudsock Track & Field Sponsored meets, Indiana Youth Track Association (IYTA) meets (generally 4 meets which take place at the end of May and throughout the month of June) and the USA Track & Field State Meet held in Mid June, with the opportunity to advance to the Regional meet (early July) and Nationals (late July). Find the full meet schedule on this page. 

Our program is a great introduction to Track and Field or an opportunity to expand and extend the Track and Field season offered by local schools. Our athletes range from first time track athletes to nationally ranked track athletes. We encourage Mudsock Track and Field Athletes to participate in their school track program (if offered by their school) during the season. All athletes will participate in the Indiana Youth Track Association (IYTA) events, this is included in your entry cost.

Practices and Uniforms

FIRST PRACTICE and PARENT MEETING: 
(Coming soon)

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
Uniform ordering information will be updated here as the season approaches. We will be using the same uniforms from the 2022 season. 

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 in March. 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!

 


Membership Requirements

IYTA Membership (covered under your registration fee) 
All Mudsock Track & Field athletes automatically receive membership in the Indiana Youth Track Association (IYTA) including entry into IYTA sponsored meets. (All IYTA meets are local: Westfield, Noblesville and Fishers). We will participate in 4 IYTA events during the year, which make up most of the track meets. Athletes will be responsible for all costs of travel to all meets and for all fees to enter non-Mudsock Track & Field/IYTA sponsored meets.

USATF Membership (cost $25)
All athletes must be registered for a USATF membership by visiting USATF.org and using the FIRE code 16-0177 to link with our team. Membership lasts one year and must be renewed. You can upload the athletes birth certificate directly to their account and MUST DO SO for proof of age in order to compete at the USATF State, Regional & National meet. 

AthleticNET Account (free)
Families are encouraged to create a free account for their athlete at Athletic.net so that they can keep track of their athletes records throughout their Track & Field and/or Cross Country career.


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.
