Track and Field


Without the help of parent volunteers, our track program would not be as successful.  We are always in need of parent coaches and Board members to effectively run and manage the program. 

We have a few open positions for the 2020 season and beyond. These are critical to the success of PLAY Track. Not only are you supporting your athlete, you also get a view from behind the scenes and have a hand in making this program even better.   Please consider volunteering for one of the open board positions.

Current positions include: 

K-3rd Grade Coordinator:  Primary duties include set up of track meets/practices and assisting the VP's in fielding questions. 

If interested please reach out to Adam Kneeland or Scott Kalb (VP's of Track)  for more info. 

Thank You For A Great Season

We thank everyone, coaches, parents, and fans for a great 2019 season.  We couldn't run this program without the parent volunteers who assist along the way. 

Look for information on the 2020 season in January.

Welcome to 2019 P.L.A.Y. Track & Field

6th-8th graders - Note this is P.L.A.Y. Track Registration - if you want to register for Middle School Track you must go to the PLHS MS Activities website in order to register.  As a 6th-8th grader you can actually register for both - but you will need to register in both places PLAY and PLHS if you choose both - you are not able to register in one spot for both or the other.

The P.L.A.Y. Track and Field program is open to students from all districts, not just Prior Lake - Savage.

Kindergartners must be in K this school year (2018-19 school year) .  No Pre-K's.

We have access to the Prior Lake High School and Track for our meets and practices.  This has to be the best youth Track site in the state! Since the high school teams share their track with us, our schedule depends on their schedules.  It is a short season jam-packed with a lot of fun!

Track and Field Goals:

  • Make track and field fun for the kids, coaches and parents.
  • Provide a safe sport through proper use of equipment and access to amazing fields.
  • Give kids similar event participation time.
  • Teach the fundamentals of the sport and encourage progression of skill development.
  • Encourage the athletes to try all events throughout the season.
  • Demonstrate admirable sportsmanship both on and off the field.
  • Work as a team.

For those of you that don’t already know……

The cost of the program is only $70 per child for a fun-filled season.


Each year the number of participants grow, which requires even a greater need for volunteers in several capacities such as coaches,  directors, and board members.  (Most parents can qualify to coach and you would be placed with your child’s team). 

Please indicate your willingness to volunteer at registration time. 
Go to ‘Coaching Requirements’ Tab at top of page to get the information for coaching.

2019 P.L.A.Y. Track Registration

To register for the 2019 season, please click the link at the top of this page!  Unfortunately, because of the number of participants we are unable to fulfill individual requests such as having a friend on the same team... unless you become a coach!

2019 Coaching Registration is also open, and we need volunteer coaches for all grades!  A vast majority of our coaches had never coached before, and all you need for training is Google!  Coaching is a great way to see your child in all events and to get to know a great group of kids and you get a free t-shirt!  Also, as mentioned above if you volunteer to coach we will try to accommodate individual requests.

A coaches meeting will be planned for the end of April when the coaches will pick up picture packets, get information about coaching and how the program works, and will be coached themselves by the Prior Lake High School Track coaches.

All practices and meets will be held in Dan Patch Stadium at Prior Lake High School.

Practices will be one evening per week beginning the end of April or the beginning of May with the K-3rd grade practices generally going from 6-7 p.m. and the 4th-8th practices from 7-8 p.m. although those times depend on when the high school athletes need the field.

Meets will be Saturday mornings with the K-3rd grade meet beginning at 8:30 a.m. and going to around 11:00 a.m. and the 4th-8th grade meet from 10 a.m. to about 1 p.m.

Thanks!  And we look forward to another great season!

Scott Kalb & Adam Kneeland- Co-VPs,  P.L.A.Y. Track & Field
