UPDATE – Shocker Track Club and Coronavirus COVID-19

As a result of recent announcements by Wichita State University and Sedgwick County Kansas which either eliminate or limit the availability of practice venues, or the size of groups attending activities, we are indefinitely suspending our plans for the Shocker Track Club Youth Outdoor Spring/Summer Program.
Should an opportunity exist in the future to commence a program we will announce it here. Until such time, we wish you all the best and respectfully request that you take all necessary precautions to protect yourself and your families during these challenging times.
Please contact us if you have any questions.

Respectfully,
Darren Muci, President
president@shockertrackclub.com

As previously announced, Shocker Track Club is working on the plans for our outdoor spring/summer Youth program to begin in early April. However, yesterday Wichita Sate University announced that, “…Effective Monday, March 16, all athletic events – either sponsored by WSU or held on WSU property – will be cancelled…..Events initially scheduled for after April 13 will be reevaluated…”  
Although our practices technically aren’t events, it appears that this means that we cannot begin our Youth Team program until after April 13th at the earliest. 
As a matter of course we are: (a) exploring other options for practices on the outside chance that Wichita State’s Cessna Stadium is not available to us, (b) monitoring the USATF website in case an announcement is made regarding youth member club practices, and, (c) continuing to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19, before determining the start of our Youth Team outdoor practices, or if it would even be practical to hold the program this year.

Updates will be shared here and on our other other social media platforms. Feel free to contact our President, Darren Muci, at president@shockertrackclub.com if you have any questions.
