CENTRAL SAANICH — Registration for the Peninsula Track & Field Club is fast approaching, and those interested in joining can mark their calendars for March 17, practices beginning April 5.

This year’s newest president of the Club is Carl Jensen, who is also a councillor at the District of Central Saanich who is looking forward to the season, and encourages youth to be involved.

“It’s an opportunity for kids to get involved with track and field especially at the younger age, where we  encourage them to try all sports everything from the running to long jump, throwing…” Jensen told the PNR.

He said the Club had a growth in its membership last year, with 67 members — up five from the year before. Most of the kids are in the nine to 13 year old range. There are 14 in the Track Rascals program, which is ages 6 to 8, two midgets in the 14 to 15 range, two youth in the 16 to 17 age range and 12 masters, which is in the 35-plus class.

The Club participates mainly in a series of meets on the Island. All training is done out of Parkland Secondary School. For more, members of the public can visit
