Summer Track Program
The Ragnarök Athletic Club is the only USATF sanctioned track and field club in Grand Forks. It provides athletes in the Northern Red River Valley with a chance to train, improve, and be introduced to the events of track and field. There are a series of meets throughout the area available to those who decide to compete. All event areas will be offered in some capacity, including the decathlon/heptathlon, sprints, hurdles, jumps, pole vault, and relays. Ragnarok website

The club fee is $75. This fee includes a USATF membership, a performance t-shirt, meet registration fees, All entries and USATF memberships will be taken care of for the athletes by the club.
For sprint/hurdle/jump/vault/multi-event training, there is also a $75 coaching/training fee. Regardless of whether or not the athlete competes in the summer meets, he/she will still receive a USATF membership. Between all of the coaches, this will allow you to train, at the least, two sessions per week. It's entirely possible that more than two sessions per week will be available. That will all depend on coach and athlete availability throughout the week.The club fee and coaching/training fee brings the summer total to $150.
**FYI: This fee does not include transportation or lodging to any meets. Those costs must be furnished by the athlete.

2021 GFC T&F Information
I will be sending out weekly emails about what our plan is for the upcoming week. If you are not already getting my emails, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will add you to my contact list.
The store (website below) will be open until March 1st. If your son is going to be in track or xc for the next few years, please consider buying the Augusta Jacket and one of the pairs of black pants. This will ensure that they have these items, otherwise we may not have the size your son needs available, as we have limited sizes and a large team. Also for warm ups it is nice to have a common top like the Sport-Tek long or short sleeve tee. If buying these items please choose the additional name option when ordering. Athletes commonly throw all their clothing in one pile at meets and with names on the back of each clothing items it is much easier to make sure each person has their own items.
