Track and Field

Welcome to St. Leo’s Track and Field and Cross Country!
Deadline for Fall Registration is Friday, April 8, 2016. Fee is $10, checks made out to St. Leo’s CYO. ATHLETES MUST HAVE FORMS TURNED IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE. NO EXCEPTIONS! The forms can be found at:

Please send both forms and payment to the St. Leo’s front office PRIOR to practice.

  • Track Meet details will be announced at practice.

***Please note that times are subject to weather, number of participants, and how quickly the meet runs. Fall Track is for Grades 3-8.
SPRING TRACK IS FOR GRADES 2-8. 2nd graders can only compete in the FPYC meets, as CYO begins in 3rd grade.
Again, PLEASE TURN THE FORMS INTO THE FRONT OFFICE WITH YOUR PAYMENT by April 8.

ALL ATHLETES must have a parent/adult present with them at the meets. All parents must volunteer FOR 1 EVENT/RESPONSIBILITY for Track.
Inclement weather: We run, rain, shine, or cold. In the case of potential thunderstorms, heavy rain, or dangerous conditions, a decision will be made and sent via email by 12 PM the day of practice. PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND THE APPROPRIATE ATTIRE FOR COLD OR WET WEATHER!
Parent volunteers: We always need our parents! It GREATLY helps to have one parent stay and help with the kids’ getting ready for practice, even for 15 minutes. You can have younger siblings with you. We especiallly need volunteers during meets, 1 per event (CYO requires it). During practice, as long as you are VIRTUS certified, all help is much appreciated, no experience necessary. Also, feel free to run/walk with us. Younger siblings welcome. However, please remember that you are responsible for their care and well being.
Uniform for the meet: Black PE shorts, maroon track shirt or pe shirt.
Where to meet and what to wear for practice: Comfortable clothes and sneakers, PE uniform standard: NO spaghetti straps, short shorts, or immodest clothing. We’ve had students forget their shoes and run in school shoes- that is parent/athlete discretion. Sorry, no bare or sock clad feet.
We meet across the speed bump in Area II and proceed down to Olde Parish Hall.
Communication: all changes and communication will take place via email. Any individual concerns can be communicated this way or right AFTER practice as time allows, and most preferably, via email. Please understand that all attention is directed toward the athletes, their workouts, and their safety during practice, so discussions cannot occur during this time.
Extended Day: Extended Day participants should come directly to practice and we will sign them in at the end of practice. They are responsible for taking their belongings with them at that time, but we will do our best to help!
***PLEASE NOTE: All athletes will be signed into Extended Day 15 minutes after practice ends if no parent/guardian/designated person arrives to take them home.
Track and Field is a low pressure CYO sport where the focus is on fitness and fun. Athletes are encouraged but not required to compete in the meets. Good sportsmanship and respectful conduct is expected at all times, both at practice and at meets. Please email Tim at timgroseclose@gmail.com with any questions or concerns that you may have. Hope to see you out there!

Cross Country – FALL SPORT

St. Leo’s is still looking for a Cross Country coach.  Until we find one, all athletes who wish to participate in Cross Country may do so simply by submitting their paperwork (same as above in Track) to the front office by September 10 and they will be entered to represent our school.  There is no fee for those who are already competing in Track and Field.  Fee for all others is $5, checks made payable to St. Leo’s CYO.  Date of meet TBD, usually held the first weekend in November at Burke Lake.  Please check back for more details.
