The Ottawa Lions Track & Field Club has been offering specific programs for youth over the past twenty years. Our current programs provide children with opportunities to develop and improve their athletic abilities while having fun. Our philosophy is that young athletes should develop a wide variety of sport skills. Ideal for young athletes participating in any sport, our program targets the basic skills of running, jumping, and throwing that are an intrinsic part of almost every sport. This will result in children with diverse athletic proficiencies and a higher likelihood of them finding a life-long sport.

Our mission at the Border City Athletics Club is to develop athletes, motivating them to strive for athletic excellence and to have aspirations of success in their lives beyond athletics.

Our development program features athletes ages 12 to 14.  These athletes will focus on basic developmental skills that will enable them to progress as athletes.  Our young athletes are able to experience all track and jumps events.  Our goal with our developmental athletes is to provide the skills for all sports in a fun and interactive environment. We work on important skills that will be required by all other sports.

 

Harry Stantsos, St. Thomas Track & Field, www.stl-trackandfield.ca, 519-649-4329

This is a developmental program specifically geared towards the younger athletes in our community. Our objective is to familiarize each athlete with the basic fundamentals of track and field in a fun and motivating environment. Our emphasis is on the personal growth of each individual. Instruction will be centered round the principles of motor development and body awareness with sessions on strength, speed, technique and endurance which are necessary tools for athletes in any sport. We will encourage each athlete’s focus to be placed on achieving personal best performances and not on the competitive nature of the sport. The level of fitness of each individual will increase along with their technical skills in running, jumping, and throwing events.
