Elementary-Orange & Seminole Counties

Registration

Dreadhead’s Track & Field program is centered on providing friendly competition to children. We will provide a fun & friendly atmosphere where your child will be motivated to run and compete week after week. Dreadhead Sports will provide: scheduled meets, various events, a t-shirt or uniform for some locations, 5 ribbons every meet and a parent/coach volunteer from your school or group. The ultimate goal is to create a love of running among our youth. It is within this newfound love that we hope to develop positive habits that will carry forward into our children’s adolescent and adult lives to build a stronger and more fit community.

Registration is now open for the Fall Track Season Click here to sign up! Note – Your child can be with any school to register with Dreadhead Track. If you do not see your school on the drop down list click, ‘other’.

Sign up before September 1 Click Here to Sign Up

Practice:
We have two types of practices.

  • School Teams: We encourage teams to hold after school practices at their schoolduring the week with their team coach. Dreadhead Track is not responsible for obtaining practice times, days, location or permission. It is up to the team coach of the participating school to solidify the logistics regarding practice. Practice usually starts the week prior to the first track meet. Parents will receive notification from either Dreadhead Track or the Team Coach once we have confirmation from the coach. We are not able to hold a practice at the school until we have a volunteer parent sign up to coach the team. Please do not email or call for your practice times. We will only know when the coach lets us know. We will then promptly let you know.
