Chautauqua Jets Track & Field
The Chautauqua Jets track and field team have a youth and development program for kids in grades 5-8, to help better their skills and techniques. The program targets local Dunkirk boys and girls, but all Chautauqua County athletes are welcome to join.
Registration will be held on Thursday, July 6, at 7 p.m. at Dunkirk High School. At registration, youths will be required to pay a $20 USA Track and Field (USATF) membership fee along with a copy of their birth certificates. If for any reason a youth cannot pay the $20 fee, they can receive membership fee assistance — no youth will be turned away as a result of the fee.
The program will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays for six weeks, culminating into a special event that will be held August 11.
