U6 Program - On Track

The U6 age program is the On Track Program, which is a developmental motor skills based introduction to athletics.  The On Track Program runs simultaneously to the standard program for other age groups.  As the season progresses and appropriate skills are learnt, the U6's will gradually be introduced to the events listed at the discretion of the On Track Coordinator(s) and Arena Manager.  This generally happens after the Christmas break.
