Track & Field


WYSI track and field is open to all athletes 7-14 years old. WYSI follows the IYTA and USATF breakdown for age groups. Age groups are based on the participant's age on December 31st of 2023. Please refer to the graphic below. 



Welcome to WYSI Track & Field!

For 2023 we are building on the success of the program in recent years. This year the program will be open to all athletes ages 7+ on or before December 31, 2023.

Team Communications: Team communication will be through the Stack Team app. Click the link below to download the app via the links below for your smartphone. Once you download the app, create a login and you should see the "WYSI Track & Field 2023" group. 



We will discuss the season in greater detail at mandatory Parents Meeting on April 12, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. at the Westfield High School Stadium. While the parent meeting is going on, your athlete will have the opportunity to try out any or all of the field events. The goal for try out night is to narrow down what events your athlete would like to focus on during practices and meets. If your athlete is not interested in field events, they do not need to attend. The parent meet will still be mandatory. 


Practices: Practices will begin April 17, 2023 promptly at 6:30 p.m. and conclude at 7:30 p.m. (unless otherwise noted on calendar). Practices will be held primarily on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Some Wednesday practice dates are scheduled due to track availability. We have also needed to add Freedom Trail Park as a practice location for the week of May 8th. Please see the calendar for full practice and meet schedule. It is not required to attend every practice but encouraged to participate whenever possible.

In-House Meets: We will host two in-house meets. Athletes will have an opportunity to try a variety of events and get used to the flow of a track meet. These events are relatively laid back and fun and will show the athletes how a meet is run. A Google form will be sent out to register your child for these no cost in-house meets. Numerous volunteers will be needed to assist with officiating, timing and to ensure a smooth experience for our athletes.

Track events* for In-house meets:  100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1600m, 100m Hurdles (13+)           

Relays: 4X100, 4X400

Field events for In-house meets: Shot put, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, High Jump 
* This is NOT the order of events. We will hand out order of events at Parents Meeting


All athletes in our club will have the opportunity to participate in four (4) local Saturday meets as part of the IYTA (Indiana Youth Track Association). The dates and locations of these meets will be confirmed and shared at the parents meeting on 4/12. Your WYSI registration allows each athlete to pick up to three events, not including relays, to participate in. A Google Form will be sent each week to register your athlete for that Saturday's IYTA meet. Additional information about the IYTA can also be found here: Indiana Youth Track Association | Indiana's Premiere


USATF Membership is not required for the IYTA Saturday meets. Information regarding USATF membership will be covered at the Parents Meeting. A USATF membership will be required for athletes wanting to participate in the USATF Indiana Youth State Meet and any other meets in red on the calendar. These meets will require a separate entry fee.
