Spring Outdoor Track Comes to Needham TC

The Spring Outdoor Track program is open to children age 5-14, the program will meet on Sundays from April 7, 2023 - June 9, 2024 at DeFazio Field at 360 Dedham Avenue in Needham MA 02492. There are two separate sessions this year: Sundays from 9:15 - 10:20 am and Sundays 10:40 - 11:45 am Children will be coached both in running and field events and will be exposed to tips on a happy and healthy running life style.

Children will be placed in groups depending on age, ability, and goals. The program is suitable for those serious about track and field and wanting to compete in meets as well as those with a more casual interest who want exercise and to learn more about running and field events.

Children age 7-14 can choose between a Sprint group (including field events) or a Distance group (running with or without field events)

Many coaches from our successful Summer, Fall, and Winter Track programs will coach Spring Track.
