LRC YOUTH COMPETION TEAM

 

 

The Lanier Running Club was approved in November 2008 as a competitive USATF Club.  This allowed the Club to register teams and individuals in the USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships in November 2008.  In a very short time the Club recruited 26 middle school and high school age athletes mostly in the Hall County area to compete for the Club in the Georgia USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships.  Our 3 teams placed first in their divisions and all our athletes qualified for the Regional Championships in Virginia.  Our Intermediate Girl’s Team won Region and we had 9 athletes to qualify for the USATF JO XC National Championships in VA. 

We want to build on this beginning and recruit young athletes of all ages in our area to introduce them to track & field and cross country through the USATF Junior Olympic Program.  There is no youth track and field program in our area and the schools do not have track or cross country programs below the 6th grade.

We need Sponsors for our Youth Program to serve young athletes ages 8-18 which will include participation in the USATF Junior Olympics Championships in Track and Field and Cross Country.  We need uniforms, track and field equipment and funds to help with registration fees and travel expenses.
