Unless otherwise noted or you’re given specific instructions, Silverback Track Club will register all athletes for all meets.

 

Make sure your athlete dresses appropriately for weather and wears proper running shoes with good traction. We all know how Colorado weather can be so breathable layers are best and a weather resistant jacket or windbreaker will keep your athlete comfortable while training. Your athlete may also need gloves or a hat in early season, depending on conditions. Please also note that there is NO bathroom facility at George Wallace Park, but there are some convenient stores and gas stations nearby, so make sure your athlete uses the facilities before practice. It’s also best to have your athlete eat a healthy, non-acidic meal no earlier than 1 ½ hours before practice and bring a full water bottle. You may want to have a recovery or protein drink available for immediately after practice.

Our practices are designed to progressively prepare an athlete to compete. Our focus is on building strength, agility, rhythm & timing,  speed & endurance, and proper running technique utilizing appropriate drills and conditioning. As the athlete builds a foundation of strength then that strength can then be converted to explosive power and speed. Competition is essential in our process as we are better able to assess you as a runner and an athlete and make the necessary adjustments and additions to your individualized training. We ask that all parents and athletes make a commitment to attend as many meets as they can. As much as running is an individualized sport there are plenty of opportunities for team building, such as competing in relays and having a team presence at the meets. Statewide, Regional, and National competitions are available and we would like all athletes to realize their potential and have the great fortune of qualifying for those meets.
