Nittany Track and Field Community Service Program

Nittany Track and Field is a non-profit club for boys and girls ages eight through eighteen.  The club’s main objective is to foster a positive, fun and supportive atmosphere for kids to develop athletic skills and personal growth through the sports of track and field and cross-country.  Coaches work with kids of all ability levels in two programs.  Track and Field, which runs from early May through mid-July, includes sprints, jumps, hurdles, throws and middle distance / distance running.  Cross-country, which runs from late August through mid-November, is focused on distance running.  Practices typically are held Monday – Thursday from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m.

The club offers opportunities for high school students to earn Community Service credit by assisting the NTF coaches with instruction and organization.  The NTF Community Service program is open to all students.  Those considering future study in elementary and secondary education, kinesiology / physical education and athletic coaching, among other fields, will find the NTF program particularly useful for gaining applied experience while making an immediate, positive contribution in a fun, no pressure environment.  The NTF program offers flexible scheduling commitments.
