Junior Development (9-13 yrs)


Track & Field is an outdoor team sport that naturally allows for social distancing while training, without scrimmages and close interactions between the team members. This has put Kajaks in the fortunate position of being allowed to continue offering training opportunities while other sports have had their training shut down. (Stay in your lane!) What we have to offer for 2021 Junior Development (JD) Athletes

Along with our usual training, we will also be looking at conducting some Kajaks-only track events so that our athletes can get a feel for competing and, more importantly, see their development and progress, even if actual track meets are not held or not as usual this year. We want everyone to have fun and get a chance to run, jump and throw against themselves. 2021 Junior Development Programming and Membership for athletes ages 9-13!
