World Athlete Indoor Travel Team Due to COVID restrictions, World Athlete will not have a travel team this season
The World Athlete Indoor Travel Team is for athletes looking for more challenging training and a competitive, regional meet schedule. Our high school and middle school club athletes typically join us from schools that do not sponsor indoor track teams; however, athletes from all schools are welcome to register. Children younger then 6th grade can enroll but parents should speak to our coaches about the program first. There is usually 1 practice per week from November through February. The club team competes in about 3-4 meets per season in Pennsylvania, New York and/or New Jersey.
Depending on the meet, there will are modest, additional entry fees (usually $6-$12 per event entered). Also, USATF membership will be required for some meets. Annual membership is $20 for youth athletes. Go to this link to register for USATF annual membership. Team athletes must purchase a World Athlete racing shirt (youth sizes are $20 and adult sizes are $25).

Payment plans and - based on availability - some partial tuition relief funds are available for the club travel team. Please discuss this with our coaches since the online payment system cannot process these plans.
