Worthington Youth Boosters provides an introduction to track and field to children in the Worthington School District who have just finished 3rd through 6th grades. Meets are run in age groups of Juniors (3rd and 4th graders) and Seniors (5th and 6th graders). We provide official starters for the meets, record times, and have the kids participate in different events to try to find their best one.
We are looking for adult volunteer coaches to help. Coaches will work with a team of kids for all events, practices and meets.
Other help we need is with administrative tasks: These include such things as organizing volunteers, distributing t-shirts, organizing runners, helping coaches with individual events, organizing timing events, helping with set-up or clean-up, etc. Most of this work is done at the Saturday meets.
Program Director: Chad Gonia is the Track and Field Sports Director. He coordinates all the administrative tasks, organizes the volunteers and coaches, and serves on the larger WYB Board.
This is a completely voluntary sport so we do need a lot of help. If you know anyone else who may wish to get involved please forward us his or her contact information and we will be in touch. If you need more specific information, have other ideas, or need a question answered let us know.
