Summer Youth Track and Field
Instructor: Cindy Heitmeyer
Cindy Heitmeyer is a USATF Level 1 Certified Coach, a former Division 1 collegiate track & field athlete, and the founder of the Littleton Track Organization. She has been coaching youth track in Littleton since 2008.
Experience the fun of running on Littleton’s track this summer, while learning all about the sport of track & field. This program will give each participant an understanding of the rules of track & field, and teach proper technique in each event. Students will take part in a dynamic warm-up at the start of each class, and then will be divided into groups and will have a chance to try three different events each day. Events include sprints (50/100/200/400) and the use of starting blocks, hurdles, long jump, high jump, shot put, turbo javelin, discus, and relays. The final day will be a low-key mini -meet to measure jumps and throws, and time sprints and hurdles, so participants can see how a track meet works. All skill levels are welcome!
