Junior Champs Summer Track, Field and Running Program
The Junior Champs Program is an age appropriate developmental program, introducing boys and girls to many track and field events. Dr. Robert Cade (inventor of Gatorade) was instrumental in the development of the Junior Champs Program and also supported many of the club’s other programs. A highlight of the Junior Champs Program is the weekly summer track meets with awards to all participants. Children are encouraged to become fit and have fun using basic Track, Field and Running skills. No matter what sport, running is usually the basis for skill development. Emphasis of the program is for youth to feel positive about fitness, regardless of age or ability level.
