The On Track program is designed to give young athletes the best opportunity to experience and to enjoy athletics.

The program is designed to teach young athletes skills before they are asked to perform them in a competitive environment.
The program focuses on the fundamental motor skills all the way through to the athletic skills. Young athletes participate in games, activities, drills and competitions to develop the fundamental athletic skills needed for doing all events.
The program has five levels. Each level has skills and each skill has progressive techniques. As the skill is learnt, it is developed further and further until the final athletic skill has been developed.
Currently this modified event program is aimed at the U6 age group.
