On Monday, we talked with Harry Edwards, Director of Indy’s Racing Cheetahs, a youth track & field club (Ages 6-18) based here in Indianapolis. With this being a club that attends both indoor & outdoor meets, it is a great option for you to keep your children healthy and happy all year round! Track & field is great because it includes numerous events that offer children of all abilities numerous options to find their niche. Second, if you have a child who isn’t interested in traditional sports this is a great way to get them involved. However, if your child is involved with other sports, all the speed and explosiveness that track & field training offers is great for helping them excel at these other sports. With winter right around the corner, I recommend that you start planning your kid’s winter activities. With that in mind consider Indoor/outdoor track & field, I think you will be surprised at how fun and exciting it can be for them!

Danny found us, and let me tell you about his daughter. All she did was become one of the top 400M sprinters in the state, while qualifying for the AAU Jr Olympic Nationals. Great attitude, great family support, and great talent, it will be difficult for her not to do well in anything she chooses!

Interesting article on track and field. All children should be encouraged to get involved in some sport so this sounds quite fun.
