Junior Development

Athletes between the ages of 9 to 13 are part of our Junior Development (JD) program, which is designed to introduce youth to a fun and supportive training environment, regardless of whether they have experience in Track & Field or are trying the sport for the first time. Together, we build familiarity, strength and skill in a range of events. At this age, athletes are encouraged to try as many events as possible so they can learn what they enjoy and where they succeed. Training includes sprints, hurdles, middle distance, shot put, long jump, high jump and triple jump.

The 2023 season is for youth aged 9-13 (age as of December 31, 2023)
