Indoor Practices at The University of Southern Maine
Costello Sports Complex
47 Campus Avenue
Gorham, ME 04038

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a series of indoor practices on Sundays at the University of Southern Maine starting on October 15th. These practices will run on Sundays 3:00-5:00 from October 15th to December 3rd. *** One caveat – if there is inclement weather October 15th we may have to move practice to 3:30-5:30 as the facility will be used by another group until then. ***

The practices will be run by retired Holy Cross/current York HS pole vault coach John Hoogasian. They are open to athletes of all ages and cost $25 per session. 

  • There will be a decent set of Spirit poles available for your use. You may bring your own poles to use as well.
  • There are NO SPIKES ALLOWED during these practice sessions – FLATS ONLY!
  • New this year – USM is now charging for parking :-( You will need to scan the barcode on the signs in the parking lot to pay the $1.00 per hour fee.
  • Please contact Coach John Hoogasian with any questions


For insurance and liability purposes all athletes including collegians are required to have a USATF (USA Track and Field) membership prior to working out with the club. There are NO exceptions to this rule! We will need proof of your USATF membership before we can allow any athlete to participate so please bring it to practice with you.

A year’s membership in the USATF costs $30 for those 18 and under and $55 for those 19 and up. It covers you until December 31st, 2024.

The easiest way to sign up for USATF membership is online at the USATF website.
