And so we begin.
Finger Lakes Fleet is now accepting registrations.
The pandemic through which we are all living has brought so many unexpected things, including some opportunities along the way. This club is one such opportunity. Forming a USATF youth club has been an idea that has been rolling around in my brain for years now, and with interscholastic running on hold in Section IV, now seems like a window of opportunity for this seed of an idea to be cultivated and grown.
That said, safety and health must be prioritized, and so our interactions will be limited during this time of social distancing. We are only accepting registrations for runners ages 13-18 who live within the Lansing Central School district boundaries. Practices will be 60-90 min, outdoors only, with no access to indoor facilities (including restrooms). Masks are required as is a health self-screening, and temperatures will be checked upon arrival. Runners must be registered members of the club as well as indicate attendance on the TeamSnap app. If fewer than five people indicate they will attend the practice, we may cancel that practice. We are currently allowing up to 20 runners to attend a practice. All participants will be expected to abide by club policies.
