“The Youth team is returning!
We are pleased to announce the return of our Gulf Coast Runners youth team.
Elementary practices- sign up now!
A new session will begin February 1, 2021, and run through the first week in May. The sessions will be one hour from 5:30 to 6:30 PM on Monday and Wednesdays at our new location, Fleischmann Park. The practices will focus on the skills, drills, fundamentals and fun! Elementary age runners will meet at the sand volleyball courts for practices conducted by our new youth team coach, Mr. Don Howard. Parents should drop off using the Goodlette Frank Road parking lot entrance south of the skate park. The GCR youth team is a perfect spot for an elementary runner looking to get in some great workouts, and/or alternatively for those looking to get involved in running for the first time.
Middle school/ advanced practices – Check back soon for track and field state meet opportunities!
GCR is proud to offer an USATF level 1 certified and insured coach, Justin Moomaw of Elevate Training, to conduct our middle school practices. These practices are scheduled in preparation to represent Gulf Coast Runners at the FLYRA state track and field meet in May (qualifying times and distances required).
