The Nittany Track and Field youth club is kicking off its 2018 track season in a week - on April 30th. 

The club is open to any youth athletes in the age range from 7 to 18, and its main mission is to create environment for the kids to be introduced to the track and field as a sport, learn new skills, and train to achieve their athletic goals. The program is suitable for both experienced athletes and beginners.

Events practiced include: sprints, distance, hurdles, jumps (long, high, triple), and throws (shot, discus, javelin). The practices will be held from 6:15 to 7:45 pm Monday through Thursday at the State College High School track until June 15th. Additional practices will be organized at other venues. The lead coaches for the summer program are Mark Fedkin, Josh Litofsky, Andrew Maguire, Matt Lindenberg, Wyatt Kline, and Jayson Jackson.
