Open to girls going into the 5th through 12th grade for all of Berkshire County. 

See the Track Club Schedule page for season dates.  Not too late to join.

Thursday July 21st we will meet at the Berkshire Museum to run the Scavenger Hunt at Third Thursday.  We will divide into teams and track down the clues.  The event will end at the Lichtenstein Center around 7pm.  

On Saturday will be the Pittsfield Track Meet.  Registration starts at 9am.  The events are the 100m 400m 800m 1mile long jump and Javelin.  Meet will go until at least 11am.

 The club meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6pm and Saturday mornings at 9am throughout the summer.  Except for race days, we meet at the Taconic HS Track.

We will be training to run several area summer races individually and as a team. 

 There are no tryouts or rankings.  The Team Philosophy is for girls to be introduced to proper training and stretching techniques, develop age-appropriate conditioning, and learn to appreciate the joy of running.  Several area coaches have volunteered their time to demonstrate and teach technique in several field events as well.  This year we will receive instruction on the long-jump, sprints, shot-put, high-jump, hurdles, discus, and more. 

 There is no cost to join the team.  Team singlets are $20 and various races may have a fee associated.
