Track and Field
Come out to the Littleton track facility for a fun introduction to the sport of track & field. Children will learn the fundamentals of the sport, including proper warm up, form and speed drills, and proper cool down. Students will be divided by age group, and will be introduced to the different events of track & field, including 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!
