Forsyth County Parks & Recreation will host the 2017 Future Olympians Track Competition on Sunday, October 15, at South Forsyth High School. The Future Olympians Track Competition is for girls and boys in kindergarten through fifth grade.
The annual event will be held at the track at South Forsyth High School this year, with on-site registration being held from noon to 1 p.m. and events taking place between 1 and 3 p.m. The fee is $5 per child.
“The Future Olympians Track Competition is an afternoon of fun and fitness for our county’s elementary school students,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jim Pryor. “This year’s competitions will include the long jump, softball throw and various running events.”
Participants team up with their schoolmates to compete against other schools to determine the “2017 Forsyth County Elementary School Track Champion.”
At the event, medals are presented to those individuals placing first, second and third in each event. Plaques are presented to the schools placing first, second and third in overall points, and a plaque is also presented to the school with the most participants. T-shirts will be given to the first 500 registrants.
