CityParks Track & Field gives New York City kids the chance to learn the basics of the sport, from hurdles and relay races to long jump, shot put and javelin throw.
The program is open to boys and girls ages 5-16 and runs each summer in July and August.
Actual start dates for lessons at each park vary according to which days of the week lessons are given there.
All participating kids have the opportunity to display the basic skills learned at the end of each season at an organized track meet held at Icahn Stadium, the world class sports complex on Randall’s Island. Click here to view the schedule and map for the Aug. 8th Track meet.
**AUGUST 8th TRACK MEET* As a precautionary measure today's track meet has been cancelled due to the current conditions and ongoing threat of thunderstorms. The meet will not be rescheduled. We want to thank all our participants and parents for a great summer and hope to see you next year!
