Caltaf has specialty programs for every track and field event.
Caltaf’s Cheetahs program introduces athletes between the ages of 8 and 11 to the sport of track and field while at the same time developing fundamentals of the sport and a general foundation level of fitness that will benefit these young athletes in all aspects of their lives.
Join Caltaf’s junior development program to train and compete in a variety of events in order to improve your general athletic skills and to discover those events you enjoy most and in which you may wish to focus on as your athletic abilities continue to improve.
Ages: Grades 6-9
Join Caltaf’s Combined Events Group if you are an athlete in grade 10 to 12 and interested in training for and competing in combined events competitions.

Athletes will be encouraged to begin to focus their training on their preferred events.
Ages: Grades 10-12

What our members are saying.
To me success is not measured by just who wins the race, it is also measured by who tries the hardest and who performs to the best of their ability. Track and field lends itself to the pursuit of personal goals better than any other sport. That’s why it’s so great; in our club everyone can be a winner!- Ed Moore
An athlete’s only true opposition is themselves; what an athlete puts into sport determines what the athlete will get out of it.- Christine Laverty
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. -Aristotle”- Jason
