2017 Schedule WYB Track and Field Place: Worthingway Middle School

WELCOME TO WORTHINGTON YOUTH BOOSTERS TRACK AND FIELD!

Worthington Youth Boosters provides an introduction to track and field to children in the Worthington School District who have just finished 3rd through 6th grades. We provide official starters for the meets, record times, and have the kids participate in different events to try to find their best one.

About the program.
1. The program is coed. All of the athletes will be together for the warm-up and cool down but divided into their specific league for practice and for the meets.  During the summer all athletes will get to participate in all of the events.  Achieving your personal best and cheering on other athletes is encouraged!

2. The program will be divided into 4 leagues – with of a mix of kids from all ages. Current 1st and 2nd graders are not eligible for the program.
