DC Athletics Club Track and Field
Track and Field has a two, potentially, 3 meet season. It is meant to be an introduction to Track and Field training, activity, and meet preparation and competition using the USTAF Developmental Track and Field Training program.
DCA Track and Field is an enhanced program conducted in conjunction with Speed and Agility training leveraging collateral Injury Prevention activities. At earlier ages DCA promotes, not only multisport development, but also focus on overall improved athletic performance. That means training that develops explosiveness, speed, agility, endurance and proper movement and mechanics. There will be some sport specific exercise in each session designed to drive impact in the child’s primary sport. But this Track and Field curriculum is designed to improve the child’s base capability for all sports while introducing them to Track and Field.
DC Athletics and Explosive Performance have partnered for Speed and Agility Training to DCA members. This youth program is designed for single or multisport athletes. This implementation will use Track and Field as a general accelerant for movement and running.
DCA has also partnered with DC Department of Parks and Recreation to offer as part of the training participation in three track clinics jump (April 8, 2015), throw clinic (Wed.
