Running, Jumping, Throwing, and a 4 x 100 Relay

Come to this informal and fun track and field clinic designed to familiarize participants with this universal sport. The emphasis is on participating, learning, improving, and doing the best one can.
Track events include the 100, 200, and 400 meters for all grades, the 50 meter dash for 3rd and 4th graders, and the 800 meters and one mile for the 5th and 6th graders. Field events include the softball throw for distance, the standing broad jump for 3rd and 4th graders, and the running long jump for 5th and 6th graders. There is also the 4 x 100 meter relay race. The events are contested by grade; 3rd/4th grades together and 5th/6th grades together based on the current (’18-’19) school year.
SPRING SESSION: May 10-June 15
Youth Track Grades 7-8 (JUST ADDED!)
The emphasis in this program is on participating, learning, improving, and doing the best one can. This clinic is designed both as an introduction for someone curious about this universal sport and for the 7th and 8th grader on the middle school team who may already have some experience. The usual track events – the 4 x 100 relay, the 100, 200, 400, and 800 meters, and the one mile – are introduced and practiced.
In addition to familiarizing participants with those running events and providing a good workout, additional time is provided for long jumping and relay handoffs, and participants will also be introduced to the use of starting blocks, hurdling, and the triple jump. Depending on time and numbers, the high jump, shot put, and javelin (using the safer turbo javelin) may also be briefly introduced. The overall emphasis of the clinic is on participating, learning, and improving. The clinic concludes with a meet under the lights at Burlington High School.
