We are adding to our team this spring! New for 2019 is a Grade 4-7 team that will be an introductory team to track and field. Athletes will attend 6 practices through May and June and get to take part in one competition at the University of Manitoba at the end of June!
We feel that with our offering in combination with some of the track and field events that happens at school that this will give young athletes an opportunity to experience and try track and field without having to make too serious of a commitment. Not only that, we get to have a lot of FUN too!
Space is limited to only 15 spaces this year and the roster will be filled on a first come first served basis. Parents, we do respectfully request that your little athlete show a keen interest in the sport of track and field or maybe just in running!
