Location: All practices will be held at the Bethel Park Rec Center athletic fields, 5151 Park Ave, Bethel Park, PA 15102.
Practices: The athletes will be divided into small groups each with an adult coach leading their group through warmups and stretches. Each athlete must bring their own equipment and supplies. There will be no sharing of mats, water bottles, stopwatches, etc. Practice will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 6:00 to approximately 7:15 starting on Monday, August 29.
Meets: Meets are typically Saturday or Sunday mornings, starting between 8 and 9 AM. There will be local meets sponsored by clubs, the Three Rivers Association Championship, the USATF Region 2 Championship, and the USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships in Texas. Dates will be published in TeamSnap when they become available.
Weather: We have historically practiced in rainy weather that wasn’t dangerous or extreme. This season we will need to keep a closer watch on the weather during our practice times. Stretching and warmups will be done “on the field” so the children are exposed to the weather. We ask that all parents stay at practice if there is any chance of rainy weather.
Spectators and guests: Only registered Pacer athletes will be permitted at practice. Parents are welcome to observe from a distance. Siblings friends, and other guests may observe from a distance with parental supervision.
Changes: All plans are subject to change quickly. Please monitor www.pacertrackclub.com and our Facebook group for up to date information. Registered athletes will receive official communication via TeamSnap.
Registration: Cost will be $75, and a USATF membership will be required. Instructions for registration can be found at Joining The Team.
