Track and Field

Final Week of the Season

Week of 5/31/21 update

We have Reached the final week of the 2021 Track Season.  Have to admit, we have had an incredible season weather wise.  Weather looks to be warm so please do not forget sunscreen and plenty of water. 

Practice Tuesday (6/1) is at Twin Oaks:

K-3rd from 7:00-7:45

4th-Middle School from 7:45-8:30

Our final meet of the year will be on Saturday (6/5) at the High School.  Keep in mind we have a few extra events planned so please stick around after we are done running.  We will have a coaches relay as well as an awards ceremony to recognize the top 3 places in each grade and gender in the field events. 

 

Registration for the 2021 season is now closed.

Rosters have been sent to all coaches and are listed on the Teams Tab.  

The Schedule has been updated as well and can be found on the Schedules Tab. 

Keep in mind this could change throughout the year so keep an eye on this site or contact your team coaches. 

Welcome to 2021 P.L.A.Y. Track & Field

Registration for the 2021 is now closed!   

To register, 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. 

More rough information can be found below and will change as scheduling gets finalized. Critically important this year is the need for volunteer coaches for all grades, we cannot have a season without you and rosters cannot be completed unless you have enough coaches, so please consider signing up.  A vast majority of our coaches have never coached before, however we do have the assistance of the High School team for some practices as well as board members to help you.  Google is also a great way to learn some great techniques! 

A coaches meeting will be planned for mid/end of April when coaches will pick up team shirts, get information about coaching, how the program works, and answer any questions. 

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

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

All meets will be on Saturday mornings with K-3rd grade beginning at 8:30am going to around 10:30am, and the 4-8th grade meet from 10am to about 12:30pm. 

 

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 (2020-21 school year) .  No Pre-K's.

We have access to the Prior Lake High School and Track for our meets and practices.  Since the high school teams share their track with us, our schedule depends on their schedules.  

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.


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


Volunteering:

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.
