Track and Field


Helena Novas youth track and field is open to boys and girls ages 7-18. Practices begin in early May and continue through late July. Out of respect for middle school and high school coaches and athletes, we limit our practices to athletes who have already competed their scholastic seasons.


We will be opening registration for the 2020 Helena Novas track and field season on March 1. Registration for 2020 will cost $100, which includes:

  • Coaching at up to 4 practice sessions per week, which begin in May and continue through July (athletes must complete their school-based season before they join Novas practices)
  • State Junior Olympic Meet Registration
  • Regional Junior Olympic Meet Registration
  • National Junior Olympic Meet Registration (qualification required)
  • Two additional mini-meets for athletes 10 and younger
  • Use of Vigilante Stadium track during designated practice times
  • Season-long use of a team singlet/jersey
  • One pair of team socks

All participants will also be required to obtain an annual USATF membership ($20) by visiting, where you can sign up for a new membership or renew an inactive membership.
