The Knoxville Youth Athletics is hosting their annual summer track and field program for local East Tennessee youth.
Running from May 29to June 23, the Knoxville Youth Athletics Program exposes kids to the fundamentals of track and field.

The program is open to all girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 18. Practices are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at more than 23 schools in Seymour and surrounding counties. The program will also offer four consecutive Saturday track meets, held June 4, 11, 18, and 25 at UT’s Tom Black Track. During the meet, youth from all locations will compete in events such as the 50-Meter dash, discus throw, relays and high jump.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
