The EAA Track program is recognized by many as one of the best youth track programs in the state. The tradition will continue for the 2022 season and we are looking forward to another fantastic track season!
The EAA track program aims to introduce and promote the sport of track & field to Eagan’s youth. Our goal is to stress the importance of team, friendship and good sportsmanship in the track and field experience. In 2021, we anticipate approximately 700+ children from Grades K – 6 to participate in our program. The season consists of five meets and typically one practice per week. The fee for 2021 is $70 for K-1st Grade and $85 for Grades 2-6.
Teams for athletes in grades K-3 are created by individual request and school. Every effort is made to keep children enrolled in a specific school on the same team. If there are two more athletes from a specific school than can fit on one team, the athletes are split as evenly as possible between two teams. Also, NO ONE is allowed to run up a grade (i.e. 3rd grader running on a 4th grade team, etc.) -- no exceptions!
Teams for athletes in grades 4-6 are based upon rankings from track results. Athletes are weighted based upon their record from the previous year and teams are built to result, on paper, with evenly balanced teams. School and individual requests are not taken into account with these grade levels. It is the final decision of the Track Director to approve formation of these teams.
