Track and field summer camp

Last week 95 Cedar Springs youth participated in the annual Track and Field camp put on by the Varsity coaches and athletes. The camp took place at Red Hawk Stadium and was run through the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department.

The youngsters took part in learning many different track and field events including hurdles, softball throw (mimicking the shot put), standing long jump, relays, starting blocks and more.  After working on the events for two days, even in the rain, the participants put their new skills to task and participated in a meet. Hershey’s puts on track and field meets around the country and this event was the local one of its kind. The event is held to let the participants explore the sport of track and field, but also to act as a qualifier for a Hershey Track and Field state meet held on July 9 at Holt High School. To qualify for the state meet the athletes must win their event during the Cedar Springs Hershey Track and Field meet. They compete in various events based on age and gender. Thanks to all of the participants at this years camp, the high school athletes and coaches that helped instruct them and train them, and the support of their families. We also would like to congratulate our qualifiers for the state meet in Holt.
