Rascals Program

About the Rascals Program

The Rascals Program provides a fun, safe and welcoming introduction to track and field for children aged 6 to 8. It is a non-competitive program that builds a strong foundation for success in all sports and physical activities.

Our Rascals Program is based on the Long-Term Athletics Development (LTAD) and includes skills such as running, jumping and throwing.┬áThe LTAD model encourages children to get involved in sport and physical activities at an early age. Through teaching these “FUNdamentals”, children learn the technical skill progression necessary for future track and field events when they are older.

The 2024 season kicks off April 5. Practices will be Fridays at Mercer Stadium from 4:30-5:30pm. The season ends on June 7. Children born in 2016-2018 can participate in the program.
