The mission of the NTF’s track program is to provide qualified instruction and a fun environment for kids of virtually all ages to try different track and field events, learn the basics of athletic training, gain fitness and new skills, and develop discipline to pursue personal goals. Learning and training are emphasized above the competition or scores, although track meets are also included as part of learning experience. And of course, fun, game activities, new friends are great bonuses that kids will get by participating in the Club through the summer.
