When does the Spring Track Season Start?
If you registered already, you will be contacted by your child’s coach in late March or early April of that year. Practices will start in early April and the first meet (race) will probably be at the end of April or early May.
The meets are either on Saturdays or Sundays. We travel to various locations throughout Nassau (and sometimes Suffolk) for the meets. The exact schedule of meets is still unknown but the season traditionally runs from late April to mid June. A "Schedule of Meets" will be posted on this website but it is important to regularly check the website and/or your child's coach for updates as the schedule is constantly subject to change. Each session of the meet usually lasts about 3 hours. The sessions are usually broken up into morning (grades K thru 3) which will typically run from about 9 a.m. to about 12 noon and afternoon (grades 4 thru 8) which typically runs from about 12 noon to about 3 p.m.
Will my child run in the meets?All children get to participate in meets (races).
Track meets can move slowly due to the number of events being offered and the large number of participants. Parents should expect to spend a few hours in the stands. Due to that reason we strongly recommend you come prepared. Bring lunches and snacks, a cooler with ice and plenty of water. Remember that meets are in all types of weather conditions and most meets do not have covered seating so it also a good idea to have on hand some of following items depending on the weather conditions: Extra warm and dry clothing, umbrellas, seat pads, blankets, collapsible chairs, sunglasses, sunscreen, binoculars, still and video cameras, and any other items you deem necessary. There is normally a concession stand to purchase food and snacks at all meet sites.
If you would like to register for our upcoming spring season, locate the "Registration" tab on the left side of this page and follow the directions. It's easy.
The Spring Registration fee is $130.00 (plus $30 if you need a new uniform. You may use the same uniform from last year.) !
We love them, we want them, we need them! Many of our coaches return year after year but as their children graduate, we lose valuable and experienced volunteers. PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING whether you have experience or not. As a parent, you attend most practices and meets anyway. Sitting on the sidelines can get boring. You may be surprised at how much fun and how rewarding it is to get involved! Most parents say “I’ll help when I can, but I can’t commit to anything regular”. Try it for ONE season. We’re so sure you will enjoy it that we promise that if it’s too much, we won’t guilt you into returning the next season. Think of how happy you can make your child and the memories you can make!!

Before registering, please be aware that due to the evolution of the health crisis, this season may have restrictions with dates, locations and protocols that may have to be adjusted throughout the season. In an effort to prioritize the protection of player and coaches, Holy Family CYO will follow all state and local COVID 19 guidance as we proceed further. In the event that we are notified of a potential case of Covid-19 within our organization we will take necessary precautions. Any sick coaches, players or family members must report sickness to CYO immediately. Sick coaches and players should not return until they have met CDC’s criteria to discontinue home isolation. As we are a 591(c) 3 Not-for-profit organization, all registrations are final and there are no Covid-19 related refunds.
