Saint Hilary Athletics and CYO Sports



Saint Hilary is a member of Catholic Youth Organization (CYO). CYO's mission is to provide an environment that promotes team spirit, hard work, good sportsmanship and fair play. This is a parish and community based athletic program that involves both our own Saint Hilary children, as well as students from the greater community. CYO strives to provide a quality experience and encourages the participation of all young people and fosters the development of Christian values in the Catholic tradition.

CYO is committed to increasing the player's understanding of the game, building character, self-esteem and discipline, developing responsibility, and adding to their enjoyment of the game. These are all lifelong traits. Saint Hilary CYO Athletic Director: Patrick Clemens email at cyosthilary@gmail.com

17-18 Track & Field: Boys & Girls

Registration:Registration open in February.
Click here to register for Track and Field.
Season:March – May
Grade:3 – 8 Grade Boys & Girls
Fee:$100, includes St. Hilary CYO Track and Field T-Shirt
Contacts:John O’Neill - oneill@ddrs.com
Practices:

Practices: Will be on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Tam High School track from 5:30-6:30pm, on the following dates: March 14, 16, 21, 23, 28, 30; April 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20, 25, 27; May 2, 4. Team members should arrive by no later than 5:30pm and go immediately to the stretch and exercise circle near the long jump/pole vault infield. This will help the team get started promptly, prevent injury and avoid conflict of space with Tam High and other athletic events.

Attendance: Attendance at practices is not mandatory, but team members should try to attend as many as possible to improve performance and understand strategy and methods for events and relays. Attendance at meets is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged, not only for the competitive experience and achievement of personal goals, but to support the team and add to the total team score for the meet. Commitments to attend meets in advance will allow the coaches to manage event assignments and relay team formation.

What to bring: All team members should wear running shoes, shorts, t-shirt and a sweatshirt (often cold at Tam in the evening) and bring a water bottle (please no gatorade, sports drinks or chewing gum – banned at Tam track and bad for track surface).

What not to do prior to practices or meets: To avoid cramps, runners should avoid substantial meals for four hours prior to practice or meets.

Meets:

Will be held at Terra Linda High School in San Rafael on the following Sundays: April 22, 2018 (division 2, grades 6 - 8); April 29, 2018 (division 1, grades 3 - 5 ); May 6, 2018 (CYO championship, divisions 1 and 2, all grades).

Events:

Sprints: 50M (div 1 only), 100M, 200M, 400M
Distance: 800M, 1600M (div 2 only)
Relays: 4x100, 4x400
Field: softball throw (div 1 only), shotput (div 2 only), long jump

Goal of the Program:

The primary goal of the St. Hilary track & field program is to instill a love of track and field as a sport. The program will encourage team members to achieve this goal by providing each of them the opportunity to improve performance as the season progresses and experience the satisfaction that comes from such improvement. To that end, practices will be easy early in the season and will gradually increase in difficulty, although at no time will practices be overly difficult and coaches will not push team members beyond levels that are reasonable for grade school kids. To help team members improve and get the most out of each performance, coaches will also provide instruction on how to develop proper form for sprints, distance and field events.

Help wanted: We will need some help from parents as assistant coaches at practices and meets. If you can volunteer, please email coach John O'Neill - oneill@ddrs.com.
