Teachers

Any teacher, sport club coach, or community recreation leader is capable of delivering the basic Run Jump Throw Wheel school-based program by using Track & Field inspired games, activities, and skill challenges to teach the fundamentals of running, jumping, throwing and wheeling (for children in wheelchairs).

While you do not need to send in any information regarding performances or attendance in the school based program, we encourage teachers or coaches incorporate these fundamentals of Run, Jump,Throw, Wheel into physical education programs or after school activities, and to ensure all interested students would be eligible and prepared to attend the Provincial Trackfest Program.
