Hi All, my 8 year old is really interested in track and field. Seems like there are only a few avenues for him since his school don't offer it as a CCA. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks

There are lots of kids runs he can join for now. When he's in P3 if his school doesn't have a track team you can ask if they will field him in some of the events (2 individual events) in D division. Its unlikely he'll make the finals as D division is for 9 and 10 year olds but its a great experience.

There are a number of athletic clubs around as well that provide training for kids. You can choose a club by proximity to your home. At this age, just encourage him to run and bring him to the park alot!

My son started taking part in triathlons when he was 7. He finished somewhere in the middle of the pack but he was very proud of his achievement and has been hooked on triathlons since. Tri Factor organises a good starter event - the kids do swim, bike and run events seperately before combining the 3 disciplines into a triathlon. :)

Hi, my son was like yours. When the time came for him to choose a CCA, he wanted to "learn how to run", but his school didn't offer Athletics. So I started him with JS athletics and got the coach to provide a letter which I submitted to the school. They approved this as his CCA and he has been training ever since. He's in P4 now and still loves his training sessions, and recently took part in his first competition. You can google JS athletics to find out more, but before enrolling find out if his school accepts external CCAs first. Hope this helps!
