PATC practice and meet dates are *5/31* through 6/3, and 6/7 through 6/10, 5:00 pm – 6:30 PM.
Sixth grade and younger are typically introduced to all of the track & field events through a series of stations that are administered by High School and College athletes. Events include sprints, hurdles, Long Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault, Turbo-Javelin, Shot Put & Discus. Activities/skills include starts, hand offs & speed development. A “distance” group is offered 2 or 3 times as well.
Older athletes (JH and older) will be more specialized in a particular event of their choice and may work in a smaller group with a high school coach or Purdue athlete. Contact Coach Custer personally for this request.
The location is at the Salisbury Athletic Complex, 1000 Cumberland Ave., WL.
