Grades 3 – 7 Boys and Girls Everyone is welcome to join! The goal of this program is to introduce students to all the events involved in the sport of Track and Field. We provide the students with the basic skills needed to compete in each event. Students who would like to further develop their skills are encouraged to also join a community Track and Field club.
FIRST PRACTICE: Tuesday, April 9th, 2013.
The last event is on: May 30th, 2013
Grade 3-7: Tuesday 3:30 – 4:30pm @ Wentworth
Students who have other school commitments that are scheduled for the same time as a practice, such as band rehearsal, need to honor those commitments.
Students who attend after school practices must be picked up at 4:30pm from Wentworth
In order to improve skills and conditioning it is essential to train consistently! We would like each student to come to a minimum of two practices a week, but we are willing to consider making arrangements for those who have particularly busy schedules.Please keep us informed.
*IMPORTANT: Wednesday and Friday Practices this year* Like last year, we have been able to secure a time at the West Vancouver Secondary Track on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7-8am. Students will need to get their own transportation to the track,but there will be a bus to take them to Wentworth after practice at 8:00am. We are hoping that the opportunity to run on a regulation-sized, marked track will help better prepare the athletes for the meets. We encourage our athletes to attend at least one of these practices a week. Track and Field Meets We will attend the following meet - more information will be distributed before each event.
