Track & Field

Ages 7-18

We are excited for another season of the Track and Field Ministry this upcoming spring & summer here at Colonial. This will be a great opportunity for our youth to display their physical talents and teach them Christian truths that will help them grow and endure in the race of life. Youth and teens from the ages of 7 to 18 (as of May 1st) are encouraged to join. We will be meeting at both Centennial Elementary School and here at Colonial for team practices during the season. Practices will be from 6:00-8:00 pm. Parents, please keep in mind that some travel will be required for participation at the meets we enter. Please also make note that participation in meets is entirely optional. Participants may choose to only practice and not participate in any of the meets.Looking forward to enjoying a very exciting season of fellowship, competition, and fun. There will be a parent meeting on Thursday, May 3rd @ 6 pm in FC 204 ( The second floor of the family center)
