Track & Field

The goal of the Ascension Youth Track Program is to develop a child's track and field skills in a safe, positive environment which promotes Christian values.

Who Can Play?

All boys and girls, ages 5-15 (in grades Kindergarten through 8th), is open to all boys and girls, who meet AT LEAST ONE of the following criteria:

  • Be Catholic and a registered member of Ascension Parish
  • Attend Ascension Catholic School
  • Live within the Ascension Parish Boundaries (click here to enter your address)
  • Attend a public elementary school whose public school boundary falls within Ascension Parish boundaries

The eligibility of a child to participate in a given age division is determined by his/her age as of July 31st of this year.

  • The age cut off is July 31. Kids run in the age group of whatever age they will be on July 31 of that year.
  • Example: Today is May 27, 2024.  Usain Bolt Junior's birthday is June 20, 2014. He will be 10 Years old by July 31, 2024 therefore he runs 10/11 age bracket, even though he is only 9 years only on the day of the CYC Prelims and Finals in May. This keeps kids of the same grades running together (mostly).

General Information

Team Formation

Ascension competes as a single team.  Athletes can compete in individual events and a relay at this discresion of the coaches.  Coaches selections are determined by performance during practices and meets. 

  • Participation on a CYC Qualifying relay team does not guarantee placement on a CYC Finals relay team.
  • Coaches will balance performace and participation in order to achieve the most competetive and largest pool of athletes for the CYC Finals.   

Registration and Fees

Registration January 18 - February 21, 2024.

Fees are $50 per participant.

No late registrations after February 23.  


Fischer’s will be supplying our track singlets and it is the responsibility of the player/parents to go to the store, get sized, and place the order.

NOTE:  The singlet is the only option for new purchases in 2024.  If you have a T-Shirt from previous years, it can still be worn but it is being phased out and is no longer available for purchase new.  The singlet or T-shirt is good for the meets.   

Ascension Track Singlet $15.  Shorts are available but optional $22.

Mandatory Parent Participation

Parent participation is MANDATORY to help at the meets. We are required to provide one (1) parent volunteer per ten (10) track participants at all meets. Each family will be required to help out with (1) shift at a meet. This is a GREAT opportunity to fulfill your work duty requirement for the Athletic Association.  Meet partcipation is conditional upon parent volunteering.

All parents are encouraged to volunteer in a Sports Program as a Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager or practice/game helper. If your team already has a Head Coach, please ask him/her what you can do to help the team, or contact the appropriate Coordinator for details on how to help.
