U6-U7 On track program

Our younger age group athletes participate in the “On track” Program.

“On Track” is an athletic skills development specially designed to provide children in the Under 6 to Under 7 age group the fundamental motor skills of running, jumping, hopping and throwing in a non-competitive environment, whilst also focusing on active participation, learning and improving, having fun and experiencing excitement.

Our U6 – U7 athletes also participate in a competition format similar to the older U8-16 Track & Field athletes, with events such as 70m, 100m, Long Jump and ShotPut being offered during normal competition days
