Track and Field

Our 2021 Spring season of on the way as we continue the strong momentum from our last season.  You can still register for this season as well as the Summer and Winter season and take advantage of early registration discounts.  We adhere to strict COVID-19 Guidelines for the safety and respect of everyone.  If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact our Commissioner Hubert N Parris at 203 300-2472 or email him at [email protected]  See you on the track! 

The Danbury Lightning offers boys and girls in ages 5 through 18 the opportunity to get into great condition while learning about and competing in Track and Field.  Practices are designed to allow each athlete to reach their potential in a fun, competitive environment.  Practices are held in the evening during the week, with meets typically on Sunday Mornings from 9:00AM. The Meet will usually last until 3:00 PM, sometimes later.  Coaches will work with the team as a group and work with individual athletes independently on specialty events, such as hurdles and field events to ensure that they are prepared for success.  Our focus is on building character, self-esteem, and teamwork in our athletes.

We have Spring, Summer and Winter (Indoor) Seasons.   The Spring Season is run during the school year, beginning in March and ending in early June. Our Middle School Athletes will have an opportunity to compete in the Middle School State Championship by meeting the qualification Standards.  At the end of the season there is an awards banquet.  Each athlete is recognized for their participation with a certificate, with outstanding accomplishments being recognized with medals.

The Summer Season begins in early June and ends in early August. It's a great opportunity for athletes to start or continue their training while seeing increased competition.  It’s also a great way to stay in shape going into the fall.

In 2017 DAYO Lightning Track & Field embarked upon its first Indoor season. It starts in November and ends in March with an indoor regional competition in Boston where families enjoy an overnight weekend getaway. Thank you for choosing Danbury Lightning!!
