2019 MOUNTAIN LIONS TRACK season  

Starts Monday, april 8 - Ends Saturday, may 18

The Mountain Lions track running program, provides a fun and encouraging environment for Elementary school aged children to learn the basics of sprints, hurdles, relays and middle distance running over a 6-week period. They will learn good running form, improve both speed and strength, while in an environment focused on the enjoyment of running.

Mountain Lions is a proud partner of Lifelong Learning, and all of our running programs are held at Elementary schools within the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). Practices are held twice a week after school, with one "introductory to Track" on Saturday April 27th at Fairview High School included in the program. At the end of the 6-week program, all participants have the option to compete in the "Frank Shorter Track Classic" to be held on Saturday May 18th and race over 800m (Grade K and 1) and 1-mile (Grade 2, 3, 4 and 5).

We are always looking for volunteer coaches! No prior coaching experience is necessary and we will provide full support with all the training needed. If you would like to be involved for our upcoming Track season, please email Jenell Archer (Mountain Lions Program Coordinator) jenell@teamboco.com

Sportsmanship is KEY to our Mountain Lions program! Good sportsmanship is when teammates, opponents, coaches and parents treat each other with respect.

Sportsmanship Oath:

To be fair, To be a good sport and honor my teammates.
I'll remember to have fun too!
