*Due to impending weather conditions tonight, Berkshire Lightning will be cancelled today Wednesday July 17th. Again we will not be having practice tonight for Berkshire Lightning. 
Open to girls going into the 5th through 12th grade for all of Berkshire County. 
We are starting our 16th season on Monday June 17th, 2019 at the Taconic HS Track.   

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

The c
lub meets on Monday and Wednesday 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, javelin, and more. 

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

Go to the signup page if you'd like to get on the email list to get Berkshire Lightning news and notifications.
