Spring track and field club for grade 3 to 8 students

2024 Spring dates coming soon

ABOUT US

This successful spring program has been the primary activity of the Huntsville Hurricanes Track Club for over 20 years! We take a multi-disciplined approach that allows participants to be taught the proper fundamentals of each track and field event in an age appropriate way. The program typically sees between 50-75 kids register each year. We rotate through all of these disciplines over the 8 weeks program:

Track:

  • Sprint

  • Middle Distance

  • Long Distance

  • Hurdles

Field:

  • Long Jump

  • Triple Jump

  • High Jump

  • Javelin

  • Shot Put

  • Discus

All coaches are National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) trained, and are comprised largely of passionate local High School athletes who run the skills stations under the direction of our trained adult coaches. These young athletes love track and field and their passion has a positive and long-lasting impact on the participants. Coaches ensure that each participant is encouraged to try their best in a fun, safe and supportive environment.

Practices are run once a week for 8 weeks, alternating between track events at the Conroy Park Track or the Summit Centre and field events at Memorial Park (Lion’s Lookout). Each practice typically follows the following format:

  1. Parent/Guardian Sign in

  2. Instructor lead group warmup – 20 mins

  3. Instructor lead Station A – 30 mins

  4. Instructor lead Station B – 30 mins

  5. Cool Down/Group Games – 10 mins

  6. Parent/Guardian Sign Out

The participants are split into 2-4 groups by age/ability, and each group does two different stations (ie. there are typically 4 stations and the kids rotate through 2 stations each night)
