2022 Gazelles Track Club season began May 16th in Colleyville and May 17th at Northwest ISD

by Gazelles Track Club, 2022-03-11T14:55:16.000-08:00March 11 2022, at 02:55 PM PST

The Gazelles Track Club 2022 season is underway! The Grapevine practices began Monday, May 16th at 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM at the Heritage Middle School track, located at 5300 Heritage Avenue in Colleyville, behind the high school off Highway 121 between Hall-Johnson Road and Glade Road. Practices are twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM until July 6th. The Justin practices began on May 17th at Northwest ISD’s Pike Middle School stadium. The Justin practices are being held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. All workouts are optional, so you do not need to bring your child to every practice unless they need or want the extra training.

Interested participants may register by emailing both Ashley Moody at ADCmoody3@gmail.com and Coach Scoggins at coachsuperg@gmail.com. Registration forms, found in the “Documents” section of this website, may also be turned in at any practice until June 23rd, and the athlete may participate that same day. Uniforms and parent / athlete t-shirts are ordered online separately by visiting:

www.agreatideaonline.com/gazelles

The deadline for ordering was Monday May 23rd at 11:59 pm. Once you have registered, please type remind.com/join/gazellestr into your browser and follow the simple instructions to sign up for the Remind group text app to enable us to communicate with you more effectively.

A parent meeting was held on Monday, May 16th at 7:00 PM at the Heritage Middle School track during the introductory practice. During the meeting, we presented information about the Gazelles, schedules, coaching and training philosophies, registration fees and ordering team uniforms. The first practice session was held during this meeting and covered the warmup and stretching routine used throughout the season, as well as an introduction to proper running form and technique.

The summer track meet schedule has been set by the region, and the dates are listed below. All the regular circuit track meets before Regionals and State will follow the same schedule, where both running and field events begin at 8:00 AM on a rolling schedule. The link to the TAAF Region 4 website is https://www.taafregion4.org/region-4-track . and the circuit track meet schedules are at the bottom of this page under “Documents”.

June 4, 2022 – Lake Dallas High School – 3016 Parkridge Drive, Corinth, TX 76210

June 11, 2022 – Summit High School – 1071 Turner Warnell Road, Arlington, TX 76001

July 21 – 24, 2022 – TAAF State Games of Texas, CCSID Cabaniss Sports Complex, 3202 Cabaniss Parkway, Corpus Christi, TX 78415

Athletes should plan to arrive at the meet approximately 45 minutes prior to the first event they wish to participate in. If you and your child do not know what events they would like to participate in, just come at 8:00 AM and we will send them into running events as they are announced. Your child needs to be registered with TAAF prior to participating in the circuit meets, but not pre-registered for any events at the meet. Pre-registration is only required for the Regional meet.

Since there is no way to determine exactly when an event will begin, it is best to arrive at the beginning of the day by 8:00 AM. Simply purchase a plastic wristband for $5 at the front gate for your child to participate, and find other Gazelles families to set up camp with. Coaches will be helping athletes on the track, and it is very important for parents to listen to the announcements about upcoming events, and encourage the Gazelles athletes who are interested in each event to begin warming up and reporting to the check-in area near the starting line. We want to encourage the young athletes to try different events in these practice meets, as there are no ‘wrong’ choices on events. Simply choose an event and do it to the best of your ability. Most meets limit the kids to 3 or 4 events per day.

Each meet has running and field events beginning at 8:00 AM. The running events follow a ‘rolling schedule’, with each event beginning immediately following the conclusion of the prior event. The typical order for running events is as follows:

(Girls, then Boys, Youngest to Oldest Age Divisions)

The 3,200 Meter Run for ages 14 and up is run at 8:00 AM.

80 / 100 / 110 Meter Hurdles

4 × 100 Meter Relay
800 Meter Run
100 Meter Dash
400 Meter Dash
50 Meter Dash (8 & Under Only)
300 Meter Hurdles
200 Meter Dash
1,600 Meter Run
4 × 400 Meter Relay

TAAF rules govern what events kids in each age group may participate in. Look over this list and let your child(ren) enter events you think they might like at the circuit practice meets. This allows them to try out an event before committing to it by registering for the Regional Meet.
