Baxter YMCA track and field (copy)

There is still time to sign up for a new citywide youth track and field program, with a local Indianapolis southside team location.

The Baxter YMCA is creating teams for boys and girls ages 6 to 15.

Registration, open through May 16, includes four training sessions and a city-wide YMCA meet which will include the other centers around the Indianapolis area. Participants will get the opportunity to sign up to participate in up to two running events and one field event. No previous running experience is necessary.

As in all YMCA Youth Sports, the track program will have no tryouts and no one gets cut from teams. Everyone who registers is assigned to a team and all runners will have the opportunity for equal time, teaching participants social and teamwork skills. All players participate throughout practices and meets.

Cost to participate is $45.

A parent meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 17 at the Baxter Y, 7900 S. Shelby St., Indianapolis.

The meet will be June 18 at the Baxter Y.
