Youth Cross Country and Track

Helena Vigilante Runners (HVR), a USATF Member Club, is proud to offer programs in cross country and track and field for Helena-area youth (ages 7-18). Our mission is to provide young athletes with a support system that will give them an opportunity to pursue competitive cross country and track and field outside their important school-based seasons. Among those opportunities are USATF Junior Olympic state, regional and national championships. We also strive to provide athletes with experienced coaching that will help them develop their skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Regular events we participate in are the USATF Junior Olympic state, regional and US championships in both cross country and track and field, but there are additional developmental opportunities.

We are successful if athletes:
  • Learn skills related to cross country and/or track and field, and improve mental fortitude, physical strength and conditioning.
  • Build feelings of self-esteem and confidence by recognizing individual achievements.
  • Have fun, form friendships and develop respect for teammates and competitors.
  • Learn the rules of cross country and/or track and field, act with integrity and develop a sense of fair play.
