Welcome to the Strider's home on the web!

Welcome to the Moorpark Striders Track Club! The Striders Board sincerely hopes you will enjoy the coming season and find the club and the sport of track and field as fun as we do. We also hope you come to feel that the club is your club too, supporting it where you can and helping your child have a positive experience with one of the best "life" sports around. The Moorpark Striders is celebrating its 44th season of participation in youth track and field. We are a member of the Ventura County Youth Track Conference (VCYTC).

 

Our mission is to introduce youth to track and field competition by giving them the ability to learn, practice and compete in track and field events.  As a member of the Ventura County Youth Track and Field Conference (VCYTC) we will host and participate in track meets. We will supply coaching, specialty instruction, and technique clinics as well as facilities and equipment.  We will endeavor to provide such opportunities to all with desire, and will grant scholarships to those in need to the extent of our ability to do so.

Groundhog Day 5K and Fun Run!

On Saturday, February 4th the Moorpark High School Track Team will be hosting the inaugural 5K Groundhog Day race through the streets of Moorpark.  

The event will include a festival at the Moorpark High School track (our home track) and a family friendly 1 mile fun run where kids can wear costumes while they chase a giant groundhog around the track (or at least a runner in a groundhog costume).

All proceeds benefit the Moorpark High School Track & Cross Country Teams.

Gearing up for the Season

It’s time to Gear Up for the 2017 Season! Practices will be starting soon, so it's time to start gearing up.  Here are the basic items you will need:

 

All Kids:

  1. A gear bag (someplace to safely store a jacket or other personal items), please put your name and phone number on the bag in case it ends up in lost and found.

  2. Comfortable running shorts and a shirt.  Try to avoid excessively large or baggy clothing that may be hard to run and jump in.  Please put your child’s name and a number on all clothing in case it ends up in lost and found.

  3. < >: bring at least a large water bottle to every practice.

    Training shoes:  Athletes should train in either training flats or general-purpose running shoes.  They should not run in street shoes that are not designed for running.   Athletes will not train in spikes. 

A good example of a suitable general-purpose running shoe for kids would be:

ASICS Boys' Grade School GEL-Contend 3 Running Shoes

For $54.99 at Dicks Sporting Goods

A good example of a training flat would be:

New Balance Boys' Grade School Fresh Foam Zante Running Shoes

For $39.97 at Dicks Sporting Goods

5. Sunscreen – put some in every kids bag, they will need it even on overcast days.

 

 

Older Kids (Ages: Bantam 9-10, Midget 11-12, Youth and Intermediate 13-15):

 

  1. Spikes (optional):  SPIKES ARE FOR MEETS ONLY.  Moorpark High School limits spikes to 3/16th of an inch “needle” spikes.  A example of suitable racing spikes would be:

Saucony Women's Showdown 3 Track and Field Shoe

For $69.97 at Dicks Sporting Goods

There are a number of good sporting goods stores in the area including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Footlocker and Big 5.  If you want to go to a store that specializes in track shoes you can go to:

Future Track Running Center

30125 Agoura Road Suite A

Agoura Hills, CA 91301

(818) 991-4786

 

Finally if you have gear from last season that you would like to sell or swap check out our new “Swap Shop Exchange” (click here to see the exchange) .  It’s free and easy to use.

 

Good luck gearing up and get ready for a great season.

 

Go Striders!
