All registered athletes will receive a dry-fit T-shirt that they can wear for the early track meets. Please make sure to follow the care instructions for these shirts by washing them inside out and drying on low heat only if needed.
Uniforms are included in the 2024 season registration fees and will be provided to athletes prior to the first scheduled meet or no more than two weeks after registration is paid for athletes who register later in the season.
For practices and meets, athletes will at least need a basic pair of comfortable running shoes. Depending on the athletes age and events, track spikes or specific field event shoes may be beneficial but are not required. Sometimes you can find these shoes at local shoe stores, Dick’s Sporting Goods, or even Ross however we’ve been able to find the best availability of varieties and sizes online at the following stores: http://www.firsttothefinish.com, https://www.eastbay.com, and https://www.dickpondathletics.com.
As of the time of this writing First to the Finish has track spikes as low as $29.99 and they often have online discounts and coupons available.
Please talk to the coaches about recommended track-specific footwear for your athlete and know that many younger athletes will not see a significant improvement with track spikes although they may feel very cool running in them.
