Summer 2024

Hosted by Greeley Rec staff, athletes have two practices per week in Greeley. Practices will include conditioning and training for general track and field fitness and specific event readiness.

Our team will compete in 4-5 regional track meets on Saturdays throughout the summer around Northern Colorado. At meets, participants are put into heats by gender and age. All participants get a ribbon for each heat. Participants can try different events each week or stick with their favorites. The season concludes with a State Meet where all divisions compete together.
