Run-Jump-Throw-Wheel to TrackFest
“Run-Jump-Throw-Wheel to TrackFest” is an annual program for students in grades 3 through 6, organized by the Newfoundland and Labrador Athletics Association (NLAA). For additional information or questions, please contact us at (709) 576-1303; athletics at nlaa.ca
Participating schools offer the Run-Jump-Throw-Wheel program as part of the PE curriculum or after-school activities through the school system for students in grades 3 through 6. Schools can send a team of interested athletes to take part in the TrackFest competition.
TrackFest is held at the MUN Field House in St. John’s, and offers fun-filled RJTW activities, in a safe and controlled environment, ensuring a positive and enjoyable experience for participants, teachers and parents.
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, and 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.
Boys and girls will compete separately.
All T-shirts are unisex. Due to the registration deadline being the week of the event, all T-shirt sizes have been pre-ordered. Although we are requesting T-shirt sizes, it will be first-come first-serve. Therefore, you may not receive the size you have requested on your registration form, but you may receive the next closest size.
