Program Costs –
We continue to receive questions about program payment.  And we understand because, due to many uncertainties, we are implementing a new payment structure program for this indoor season.  As in the past, one free try-it-out practice is allowed before registration payment is required.  ALL participants in September will pay $20.  If continuing – or when first attending or joining in either October, November, December, January, or February – the “Registration Joiner Fee” of $100 is due for that month and covers all activities AND provides all program “General Amenities”(see below for details).  Participation in additional months has a separate fee of $20 each for November, December, January and February that must be paid at the first practice attended that month.  Thus, the maximum amount that would be paid during the entire Indoor season (from September through February) would be $200.
Here are a couple of examples –
1 – Attend in September – pay $20.  Don’t attend in October or November – you owe nothing.  Return in December – pay the Registration Joiner Fee of $100 and receive all program amenities. Return in January – pay $20.  Return in February – pay $20.  Total amount paid =$160

2 – First attend in November – pay the Registration Joiner Fee of $100 and receive all program amenities.  Return in December – pay $20. Return in January – pay $20.  Don’t attend in February – you owe nothing.  Total amount paid = $140.

 

 

Twelve STC Youth Alum Sign Collegiate Letters of Intent

Twelve members of the 2019 Shocker Track Club Youth Outdoor, and/or 2019 -2020 Shocker Track Club Youth Indoor Teams signed Letters of Intent to continue competing in Track and Field in college beginning in 2020-2021.  The athletes (their high school, event(s) – and their chosen university/college) are – Jaleel Montgomery (Wichita West High, Hurdles/Sprints – Wichita State University), Brian Simon (Bishop Carroll High, Pole Vault – Kansas State University), Audrey Bebermeyer (Chaparral High, Pole Vault – Wichita State University), Kyler Meyer (Valley Center High, Multis – Wichita State University), Kenisa Meyer (Valley Center High, Multis – Wichita State University), Jalyn Whorton (McPherson High, Multis – Wichita State University), Grace Jacobs (Circle High, Hurdles and High Jump – Emporia State University), Latia Moddelmog (Canton-Galva High, Multis – Sterling College), Joy Stanton (Wichita Northwest High, Distance – Oklahoma Baptist University), Lucas Hall (Valley Center High, Distance – Bethel College), Joaquin Gonzales (Wichita West High, Distance – Cowley County Community College), and Michael Kelty (Wichita Southeast High, Sprints – Butler County Community College).  Congratulations to these outstanding student/athletes!

The athletes listed comprise the largest group ever of athletes signing Letters of Intent, and eclipses the 2018-2019 class which had ten (10) STC Youth team alumni signing Letters of Intent.  That group included two (2) athletes to the US Military Academy at West Point (Ethan Hull and Jerik Ochoa), two (2) to Emporia State University (Aren Trost and Jaden Eck), one (1) to Fort Hays State University (Taylor Linn), and one (1) to the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs (Maggie Remsburg).

Here We Go – STC Youth Team Outdoor Practice Begins

Hello Athletes and Parents!

Practices will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 615p to 745p, and Saturday mornings from 900a to 1030a at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium.
Our program has not changed in that it is available to ages 5 through 18 and recent high school graduates.

– Monday, July 6, 2020 is the first practice
– Saturday, August 1, 2020 is the final practice
– The cost for the program is $100 and is payable via cash or check made payable to Shocker Track Club
– The cost for 2020 high school graduates is $50 and is payable via cash or check made payable to Shocker Track Club
– Athletes will receive a team t-shirt, waterbottle, and wristband.
– Pole Vault – While we pride ourselves on providing instruction for all events, we will not be providing Pole Vault training this summer due to circumstances beyond our control. Athletes interested in Pole Vault should contact Denis Fraizer at polevault@shockertrackclub.com or 316-680-0852.

In closing, as we know, 2020 has been a year unlike any other.  We have spent weeks discussing the development of a Youth program that will provide a safe environment for athletes with our Coaches and Team Leadership.  Because we rent track access from Wichita State University-ICAA we will follow their guidelines for access and use.  Some of their guidelines, and ours, may seem overly controlling.  But they have been implemented for the safety of all of us.  As such, the program overview and safety guidelines mentioned here and in the attached documents are non-negotiable, but are considered fluid and will be reviewed daily and adjusted as necessary and appropriate.  Before committing to join the program we urge you to carefully consider if you can support the guidelines. 

Please contact Darren Muci at president@shockertrackclub.com  if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you on July 6th!
