Jesse Owens Track and Field Program

September 19, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance in partnership with City Parks Foundation has created the Jesse Owens Track and Field Program! This free weekly track & field youth program is available to youth ages 12-16 and enables participants to learn the fundamentals of the sport and stay active this fall. Activities will focus on running techniques for sprints and relays and will introduce other track and field activities like long jump, hurdles, and long-distance running. A parent orientation will be held prior to the start of the program to review new protocols and address any questions.
