OutdoorTrack Rec League

    CLCF's Rec League track program is for ages 5-12 years old (5th grade). Middle school athletes are welcomed but they should run with their middle school first if that is an option. The program is for experienced and first time runners who want to be active, learn the different events of track, be part of team, and have fun. In addition to running, your child will practice the hurdles, long jump, throwing the javelin (mini), and more. Each practice takes place at the Cranston West track at 80 Metropolitan Ave in Cranston. Practice times are Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7 pm. We try to start and finish on time, as everyone is busy as well as it being a school night for most if not all of the children.
    In addition to the two, 1 hour practices, per week, each Rec League runner can participate in 4 CLCF track meets on scheduled Saturday mornings. At each of these meets, athletes will be able to compete and/or try the many different events that are offered at track meets. Ribbons are handed out to the top 6 finishers in each event by age group and sex.
