SMAC’S YOUTH TRACK PROGRAM MISSION: To foster the development of youth through participation in track and field training to develop athletic strength, sportsmanship, and a passion for lifelong fitness.
Join SMAC at the Bay Road Tennis Club/Multisport Center this 2021-22 winter season at Hampshire College! For kids in grades K–8, the Winter Youth Track Program provides an introduction to a variety of track and field events, and is a great way to develop strength & speed, athleticism, practice skills, and techniques of track and field events. Come out to have fun, make new friends, and get the winter wiggles out!
Coaches Sydney Henthorn, Kristin Loiko, and Marc Patillo, along with Smith College and Hampshire College T & F athletes and high school-aged assistant coaches, will teach running, jumping and throwing events. Each evening, athletes will be divided into co-ed groups by age, and rotate through 3 to 4 stations with 2-3 coaches per station/activity. Stations and activities will vary each week. Parents are welcome to volunteer to help.
With games, relays, and conditioning, SMAC’s Youth Track Program is THE place to spend Sunday evenings!
The program is from 5 – 7 PM.
Location: Bay Road Tennis Club/Multisport Facility Center, 893 West St., Amherst, MA
