GTFA periodically hosts a Kids’ Athletics Day for elementary students on Guam. Kids' Athletics is one of the largest grassroots developmental programs in the world of sports; implemented in 134 World Athletics member federations since its inception in 2005. The program aims to introduce youth to the sport of track and field. Teams compete in a variety of running, jumping, and throwing events, which are scored and ranked at the end of the competition.


Kids’ Athletics is open to elementary school athletes in 3rd-5th grades. Athletes must be entered as a team comprised of 10 members and must have a designated adult coach.


Events include: Sprint/Hurdles Shuttle Relay, Forward Squat Jump, Overhead Backward Throw,
Javelin Throw, Knee Throw, Cross-Hop, Formula One, and an 8 x 50m Relay Race.

Interested teams and clubs can contact Noshista Benavente at noshista@gmail.com or GTFA at
gtfaboard@gmail.com for more information.
