Yorkton Legion Track Club gearing up for 2015/16 season

The Yorkton Legion Track Club (YLTC) is into another season with much success from our athletes hard training this past indoor and outdoor season.

We are now accepting registrations for the 2015/16 Track & Field training program. The club is designed for athletes who want to train with experienced certified coaches, compete at indoor meets, increase personal fitness levels and of course raise their ability level in the area of track and field. We see many non –track train with our club to help them in their primary sport. The club is open to all Yorkton and area athletes that were born in 2004 or older. Nov 2nd is our first day of training.

We have certified athletic coaches that will help you increase your performance and achieve your goals:
