Track & Field


Registration for 2023 Track & Field Season will open on Community Pass Monday, January 16th for the Chatham Recreation Youth Track Program (Grades 3-8).
The registration fee will be $95 per runner. There are no refunds.

This program gets kids running. Kids are trained by experienced coaches. 
If your child does not like to run, this is not the program for them!  It is all about having fun, but they are expected to run for the entire practice hour.

Registration numbers are limited to children in Grades 3-8.  The age of a competitor is determined based on the year he/she is born (December 31, 2023).
Youth:  (13-14-15) Birth years (2008-2010) – NO GRADE 9
Midget: (11-12) Birth years (2011-2012)  
Bantam:  (9-10) Birth years (2013-2014) NO GRADE 2

A Wait List will be formed per level once the maximum number is reached.
There will be two (2) practices per week:

Tuesdays – 5:30-6:30 – Grades 3-5 Cougar Front Field *

Tuesdays – 6:30-7:30 – Grades 6-8 Cougar Track

Thursdays – 5:30-6:30 – Grades 6-8 Cougar Front Field*

Thursdays – 6:30 – 7:30 – Grades 3-5 Cougar Track

*  Please note:  We will be on the Track if possible.  Our track availability depends on CHS sporting events. This is also why we flip times between Tuesdays/Thursdays by grade level.

Training will begin on  3/28 (weather permitting) and run through 5/18.
There are meets each weekend starting on 4/8.

The meet calendar is being finalized, but Chatham will compete against Mountain Lakes, Mendham, Hopatcong, Madison, Jefferson, Kinnelon and Sparta.  We will have three home meets and four away meets.
