Description

​Our Philosophy: We welcome ALL children between the ages of 7 and 14 who would like to participate. All we require is a good attitude and willingness to participate and follow the rules so we all stay safe and have fun.
Running, jumping, and throwing is good for everyone, from novice athletes to those who desire to compete. Our track and field activities are rigorous but also inclusive. We can adapt to a variety of needs. If you would like a scholarship, please fill out this form: 2024 Scholarship

Track Practices will be held at Harbor High School  March 11th-May 9th on Mondays and Thursdays 4:45-6:00pm 

  • Kids ages 7 through 13 are welcome to attend.
  • Youth athletes should wear comfortable workout clothes and shoes.
  • Please bring your own water (labelled with your name if possible).
  • We will do warm ups and strength exercises for 20 mins on the field
  • We then break into small groups and rotate through running, jumping, javelin throwing, and obstacle course stations for 50 mins. We are looking into adding the triple jump and discus throwing this year!  
  • We have the most amazing volunteer coach volunteers who are all accomplished athletes but most importantly, are GREAT with children and are wonderful teachers
