YES-Athletics™ hopes to accomplish our mission by focusing on the following six “ENDURO” objectives: 1. Establish fun activities, conducted in a timely manner, centered around the school based “running sports” of Track & Field -and- Cross Country, that range from recreational to competitive, that provide quality exercise with opportunities for each child to adopt and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. 2. Offer each activity free (if possible) or at an affordable cost, and in a positive learning environment that includes the student, parent and coaches. 3. Whenever possible, organize student participation (K-12) primarily by grades and as consistent as possible with school activities/sports and normal school year calendar (August 1st – July 31st) so students may learn and (ultimately) progress together in quality exercise as a basic health habit. 4. Make participation in all activities and events fun and enjoyable while maintaining a commitment to the physiology of proper training and technique for students as well as a commitment to foster event management and sport learning opportunities for coaches, athletes, parents and officials to help ensure life-long participation opportunities in the “Running Sports”. 5. Provide competition for those who enjoy competitive events with an organized advancement process that makes it possible to complete YES-Athletics™ sponsored Summer Track activities by the last weekend in June, and all finals Cross Country competition by the first weekend in December.6. At all times - - - enjoy ENDURO Health™ (a life-long race for long-term health™), while Simply Having FUN™.
