The Wolfpack competition team is for hardworking athletes who seek a more structured, focused, and competitive experience. Do your kids love track and field or trail running? Do they like to be in a competitive environment? Do they like to work hard and be rewarded for personal improvement? Do they understand the basics but want to learn even more? Do they want to be part of state and national teams?
If so, this is the Pack for them.
Our team focuses on racing strategies, mental strength development, and goal-setting within a fun environment. Each practice features core and agility work within a comprehensive training plan that enables athletes to peak at specific times throughout the season. This team is geared toward athletes who would like to compete at state, regional, and possibly national levels in track and field and/or cross country. Athletes should be able to comfortably run two miles without stopping to thrive in this program.
The competition team is USATF certified, and athletes on this team are required to have a USATF membership.

If you have an athlete in 3rd thru 8th grade who is interested in joining our Wolfpack Comp Team, please send an email to our club president: Rachel Martinez, email@example.com to discuss trying a comp team training.
All Comp Team athletes must have a USATF membership to be on the team!
What does that mean? Wolfpack is affiliated through USA Track & Field and we compete in USATF events, so it’s required that our athletes are USATF members. Part of this membership includes athlete age verification. This process can take a couple of days to complete, so it’s imperative that membership and age verification be completed BEFORE your athlete can compete in any meets; this includes track & field AND cross country. Memberships are good for 1 calendar year and expire on December 31st, so if you registered your athlete for 2023 track, they will be good for 2023 cross country. Get your athlete’s membership here!

Teams are contingent on enrollment. Additional practice locations/teams may be added and/or changed. Practice cancellations are extremely rare and are decided based on condition/safety of the practice location. Rain or snow does not mean practice will be cancelled. Our coach will reach out to you if practice will be cancelled/rescheduled. There is a $20 bookkeeping fee on all refunds. No refunds will be given after the first week of practice.
