Track & Field is one of the oldest sports that exists and is unique in the variety of events it offers. Running, jumping and throwing are what attract so many athletes to this sport.
Our goal as the Cherokee Junior Warrior Track Club is to provide a Track and Field Developmental Program in which athletes can develop track and field knowledge and skills in each event that will boost their confidence, strengthen their abilities and prepare them to compete at the high school level. Our main objective is to train in a way that builds confidence, team unity and where personal best is achieved. We want the athletes to have fun and enjoy learning the sport of track and field.
