The Needham Youth Track Club supports the education and training of children from age 3 1/2 to age 14 in the various events of track and field. We also try to build self-confidence, team work, good sportsmanship, and a sense of fair play in the context of having fun. We welcome children of all abilities including those with physical, mental, or emotional challenges. Feel free to ask us about program scholarships.
