My son is 12 years old. At a recent major competition (North Island Colgate Games) he had the following time which we though were pretty good:

100 m 11.74 sec
200 m 24.06 sec
400 m 56.92 sec

I am not sure how these compare with other 12 year olds.

Would love to hear from you

no problem. but the last thing you want to do is over run or over train, especially at such a young age. so many great young pitchers are burnt out by the end of high school because they are pitched too much too often. as long as he enjoys it, he'll get serious about it when he wants to, and when the time and training is right. good luck!

Yarride, my son, ran at a meet on Saturday (18/3). He won his 3 events

100 m 11.94
200 m 24.49
LJ 5.20 metres

I am worried about him burning out, or pushing him too much. However, I fear that he will lose his fitness. Currently, he does stretches, mainly in the pool, 3 times a week and technical training twice a week, about 20 mins each time.

I was wondering if you ment your son is in Grade 12 not 12 years old.

As a 12 year old I ran
12.9 100m
27.4 200m
100.2 400m

Some more results from that meet in North Island

In New Zealand the grades for childrens athletics are the same as their age. Hence, 12th Grade in 2006 are all those kids born in 1993 (or 12 years old as of 31/12/2005). My son is born on 16 July 2006.

regards

So let me figure this out. I am a 1992. I would be 13 as of Dec 31 2005 so I would compete as a 13 year old in 2006??

Dec 31 2006 I will be 14 so next year I would compete as a 14 year old right..even though I may be 15 in Jan 2007.

So to compare times I should look at grade 13.

over here it is your age as of Jan 1st for the year. I am considered under 15 division so I can turn 14 Jan 1 and race a guy who turns 14 Dec 31. No simple way of doing it I guess.

So my times are not like I said cause they would be me grade 11 times.

Now I am not a sprinter so I cant say if my times are any idication of good or bad in your world.

100m 11.9
200m 24.7
400m 54.2
800m 2.06
1500m 4.27

This would be the same as your grade 12

Im not sure how the sprints compare to your times but I know my middle distance times are good.

Does he run the 800m ? It would be good for training .

Those appear to be really good times, especially the 400 and 800 metres.

Yes, in this system a child born at the start of the year has a massive advantage over a child born at the end of the year, especially at the lower age groups where one year can make a big difference. As kids grow older the difference may not be so pronounced.

My son does not run the 800's. wE believe he is too young to put his body through that stress, and currently he enjoys the sprints. he does appear to have the build for middle distance, but it is too early to tell. He could quite easily grow differntly in the coming years and not be athletice at all. Hwever, if he switch to middle distance later his speed will definitely help him, just as your 100 and 200 times are indicative of a ability to finish fast in the middle distances.

I started running 800m last year. I really enjoy the race.
I have a good coach who wont let me hurt myself. People say I should not run like I do but I am careful not to over do it.

Running is something I like doing and it helps with my baseball.

Coming to talk on the internet chat rooms can be good for seeing how you compare to others. I stoped going to chat boards becuse I hated reading stuff about me. People saying good things and some people saying some stuff I did not wanna hear. People can be mean. I found this room and nobody nows me. Thats a good thing.
