TRACK IS BACK!
What is Speed League?
Roots Track Club invites all area track athletes and teams to compete in the running of the first ever Speed League! A few years ago, area track coaches discussed creating developmental meets, which in turn provides non-scored, multi-team competitions. These meets, provide opportunity for all participants, coaches, athletes, and officials to develop their skills. Our sport takes back the ability to get new coaches acclimated, coaches exposed to meet management tasks, new officials trained up, or fulfill observation hours for those seeking certification, and athletes benefit from competing locally and developing their skills without limited opportunity.
Basically, we ensure athletes, coaches, and officials will gain a better understanding for various track competition formats. Running exhibition events may add for a little bit more time, but in all, our athletes love being around the sport, and this should help more teams provide a resource for athletes to gain confidence in competitive atmospheres, and prevent being shell shocked when we go to ‘Big Show Meets’ in Boston, Wheaton, or Smith for larger events.
Keep your teams and athletes sharp and competition ready with our SPEED LEAGUE time trials!
