How the Elementary School Program Works


The MYA Spring Elementary School Developmental Track & Field Program is open to all private school, public school, and home school students in grades 3 – 5 in Memphis and the surrounding areas.

Home-schooled students or students who don’t have schools participating may compete as:

  • Unattached
  • Part of a school team closest to their public school zone
  • Part of a recognized home school cooperative

Track Meets

We’ll hold four to five track meets in March – May. The program for each meet will be abbreviated so that each meet lasts no longer than 4.5 hours (generally 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM).

At the end of the season, we’ll have our championship meet. Elementary students must compete in at least one regular season meet to be eligible for the championship meet.

Program Fees & Costs

To help offset the costs of using the track facility, registration fees for track-and-field program are $40 per athlete for the entire season. This registration fee will be the same whether the student runs one meet or all meets.

Here are some of the operational costs that the registration fee helps cover:

  • Facility rental, usage, and clean up
  • Event insurance and liability insurance for coaches
  • Practice insurance for athletes
  • Individual accident medical coverage for the athlete
  • Parking/security representative at all meets
  • Bib or hip numbers (pins for bibs)
  • Awards
  • Fluids and cups at meets
  • Timing equipment and supplies
  • Officials, including clerk of course and a timer
  • Track Supplies – marking/flagging/finish line
  • PA system at all meets
  • Portable toilets

Any athletes who aren’t able to afford the program costs may be granted a fee waiver.
