Philosophy

CYA TRACK is a low-key program. Our main objective is to instill a love of Track & Field within the children who participate and to make it fun. Participants are exposed to all skill areas of Track & Field including sprinting, distance running, hurdling, throwing (shot put, safe javelins), and jumping (long jump, triple jump and high jump).

Directors 

Ed Lull (CYA Track Program Director)

Ed Lull re-started the CYA Track program nine years ago after a 2-year period of dormancy.  Ed Lives in Fairfax with his wife of 23 years, Lynn, and his three daughters Cali, Samantha and Hannah, who are all involved in the CYA Track Program.
 
Ed ran track and cross country at Lake Braddock High School in Burke, VA, earning all-region honors six times and all-state honors twice.  Ed is a  1-time Fairfax County Champion, 3-time Northern Region Champion, and in 1979 set the Northern Region record in the 1,000 yard run (2:18.0, breaking his best friend and teammate Brian Robinson's mark of 2:18.1 set in 1978, which Robinson set by beating his best friend and teammate Dan Huskerson's mark of 2:18.2 from 1977) , the Northern Region 1,000 yard record was retired in 1979 when the region converted to metric events.   Ed's time in the 1,000 meter run at the state championship trials that same year still stands as the Lake Braddock High School record to this day (2:32.0).  In 1979 he was selected to run with the DC Striders Track Club at the Outdoor National Invitational - Atlanta Track Classic in Atlanta, GA, where he posted his personal best half-mile of 1:53.9.
 
He attended the College of William and Mary on a track scholarship, however, injuries from his college training ended his track career in his Sophomore year.

In 2009 Ed was inducted into the Lake Braddock Track and Field Hall of Fame.
