Lebanon Youth Track

This is our second year as a club with the Amateur Athletic Union! We want to thank the Kiwanis Club of Lebanon for supplying some equipment last year.

Track and Field is a great sport that provides a foundation for many other activities and sports and is something you can hopefully do for the rest of your life.


Training with the club and participation in the Hershey's track meets is free. In order to compete in AAU sanctioned meets, you will need an AAU membership which costs $12. If you already have membership with AAU for another sport, then it is not necessary to get another one but you will need your current number or ID card. Please make a check payable to Matthew Smart, and I will register our athletes and pay fees online. You will receive a membership card and number that will be required for some meets. Entry fees for track meets, shoes, or any running uniforms are extra.


Starting April 25, we will plan to meet at the Lebanon High School track on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:15pm.We'll be doing a variety of conditioning drills, track and field specific training, and having fun.
