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 for the Spring and Summer on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Danbury High School. For the Indoor Season practice is on Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Harambee Youth Center 54 West St. in Danbury. Meets are typically on Sunday Mornings from 8:00AM and can last as late as 5:00 PM. The Meet will usually last until 3:00 PM.

Coaches will work with small groups of athletes, and with individual athletes on specialty events, such as hurdles, Shot Put Discus, and Javelin as needed to ensure that they are prepared for success.  Our focus is on building character, self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills in our athletes.

We have three seasons, Spring, Summer and Winter (Indoor) Seasons.  The Spring Season begins in March, 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 spring season there is an awards banquet.  Each athlete is recognized for their participation with a certificate, with outstanding accomplishments being recognized with medals.
Our practices are normally held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM  at Danbury High School.


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 to enhance their competitive edge.  It’s also a great way to stay in shape for other sports going into the fall.

Here is our Summer 2022 Tentative Schedule:

Sat June 18 USATF 2022 USATF Connecticut Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships.

In 2017 DAYO Lightning Track & Field embarked upon its first Indoor season. Our indoor season starts in November and ends in March. We usually take a trip to compete in an indoor regional competition in Boston.  Families enjoy this overnight weekend getaway where they can dine laugh and get to know each other a little better. Thank you for choosing Danbury Lightning!!
