Welcome to the ICD Track Team!

The Immaculate Conception Dardenne track and field team started in 2010 and is a member of the St. Louis CYC Sports Association. CYC track has been competing for over 65 years. CYC runs three qualifying meets followed by the CYC City/County final meet. Each CYC team competes in one qualifying meet. Top 6 finishers in each event move on to the final meet. Each qualifying meet (3) has 2300 kids competing to make the final meet.

The ICD track team also competes to 2 to 3 additional meets prior to the CYC qualifying meet. This gives the kids an idea what track completion is all about. These meets also give the coaches an idea which events kids are best.

The track program seeks to achieve these goals:

  • Maximize physical fitness through training 3 days a week
  • Focus on self-improvement, confidence, and technique
  • Establish a foundation for speed, agility, and endurance.
  • Provide a safe environment for kids while providing a Christian atmosphere

Our program includes both boys and girls ages 5-14. Track events include sprints, distance, and various field events. Eligible youth include parishioners and non-parishioners as long as they live in the ICD parish boundaries. Age groups are based on the child's age May 31st of the current year.

Registration starts Wednesday, Feb 1st and ends Sunday, March 19th. Cost per kid is $30, which includes entry into all meets. If needed, you will be required to purchase a red ICD track jersey from Johnny Mac's for $18. Track registration will have a link to Johnny Mac's website. The team wears black running shorts. Any running shorts will work although you can also buy one via the Johnny Mac’s website.

This year we are introducing a new jersey design. The new jersey is now in line with other ICD sports teams. Any runner from past years can either continue to wear the jersey they have or purchase a new one. It is up to the parents.

The track team will host two informational meetings for parents interested in track. This will give you an idea how the track season works as Track is much different than any other ICD sport. Meetings are 7pm Thursday, March 2nd and Monday, March 6th. Both meetings are in the parish office center (POC) in the upper conference room.

Training begins the week of March 13th and runs through May 20th. Track trains three days a week if track time is available. We train at FZ West High School working around their soccer and track season. Training starts at 6pm and will last no more than 1.15 hours in the beginning. We will go longer as sunlight allows. At times, West is not open on a scheduled training day. We will move to FZ South or Wentzville Liberty. Kids in the 6/under group only train on the first training day of the week.

Any last minute changes or updates will be sent via e-mail and Facebook. It is suggested you watch your emails and Facebook regularly.

We recognize families have multiple conflicts, participation in each practice is not mandatory but highly suggested. More training means a better athlete. Some kids play club soccer/volleyball and may not be able to make a lot of training sessions. We are good with that as long as they can make the meets. Each child is REQUIRED to make one meet prior to the CYC qualifier. They must also be available for the CYC meets May 6th and if they make finals, May 20th.

During the CYC meets, kids are limited to the number of events they can enter. Each child can enter only 4 events including one field event. We will put kids in the events we think they can be most successful. We want as many kids as possible to make the finals meet on the 20th.

There are a limited number of spaces available per age group. The younger ages usually fill up fast. If you go to sign up and the age group is full, they will go on a waitlist. Usually kids will clear the waitlist and they should attend training sessions.
