Needham Track Club Youth Summer Program - 2024

The Needham Track Club sponsors a summer youth track and field program for boys and girls ages 3.5 through Middle School, meeting 2 nights per week at the DeFazio Field (360 Dedham Avenue) from mid-June through July. The program is open to children of all skill and experience levels. Professional coaches and High School-College age Counselors and CITs help run the program. Activities over the summer include practice sessions and low-key program competition. We also have special nights such as Trophy Night (each child wins a trophy), Medal Night, Neck Ribbon Night, Parent Child Meet, and the Needham Olympics. Every session concludes with popsicles. Children are spread across three programs:

  • Age 3-4 Program - Open to children from age 3 1/2 - 4 (July 2019 - December 2020) Sessions are 6 - 7 pm
