Parents & Athletes, Spring 2012

The CJ Freedom Track Club will start practices in late April for its 2012 season. We focus on 7-14 year olds but do encourage high school athletes to practice, compete and help out with younger athletes. Practices will be held on Mondays & Thursdays from 7:00 till 8:30 p.m. at the CJHS track and possibly a Saturday. We may practice a little later in the evening when school is out and it gets really hot. In the event of bad or potentially bad weather, practice will most likely be cancelled. CJ Freedom does not require a club fee to practice or compete although there is membership and registration fees for athletes to participate in the sanctioned competitions. FYI, by becoming a member of our club your child will receive limited liability insurance as an athlete through AAU. It is mandatory to become a member of AAU to compete in their sanctioned events to qualify for the insurance.

We will have some uniforms available, those uniforms will need to be returned at the end of the season. Also, as required by AAU, all athletes must submit a copy of his/her birth certificate to the club Commissioner, as soon as practical. All athletes must submit all required forms before the first meet if seeking to compete in a meet.

I would like to thank you in advance on behalf of the CJ Freedom Track Club for your help in making this track season a positive experience for everyone.
