Youth track and field event coming to Swift Current
A new event for kids ages 713 will take place next month when the Sole-Stice Classic Track and Field Meet comes to Swift Current.
The grassroots event, sponsored by Aboriginal Track & Field of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Athletics, will be held at the Swift Current Comp. track on June 7 beginning with registration at 11 a.m. and events to follow at 12 p.m.

The Comets (competitors born in 2004, 2005) will run the 60 Metre Dash, 150 Metres, and 600 Metres, as well as the Standing Long Jump, Ball Throw, and 4x100 Relay.
