JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

With over 50 years of experience the Kajaks Track & Field Club has provided young athletes with an experience that instills lessons far beyond the track. Our Junior Development (JD) program is a competitive training program in which athletes are taught the fundamentals of track & field and cross country by our expert coaches. Athletes are provided the tools needed to feel comfortable and secure in a competitive climate as they test their abilities in various competitions throughout the province. It is the mission of the Kajaks Track & Field Club to provide this program in a fun and supportive environment, and show young athletes the satisfaction of working towards their goals. #KajaksJD
