Indigenous Track and Field Day

"Indigenous Youth Track and Field Day 2021 Coming directly to you!"For the last 17 years, Western University's Indigenous Student Centre and Western Mustangs Varsity Track and Field Athletes have collaborated to organize a one-day event for Indigenous students grade 6-8 from elementary schools across Southwestern Ontario.

The Annual Indigenous Youth Track and Field Day allows students to learn and experience basic Track and Field activities from the Western Mustangs Track and Field Team. Our event also fosters the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle, teamwork, and school spirit.

On average, over 100 Indigenous youth attend this event each year. Due to the current pandemic, it has been held virtually; however, I am pleased to inform you that we are inviting you back to campus for an IN-PERSON track and field day!

Registration will be available January 2024.
