StarTrack is Athletics NI's flagship grassroots programme, which aims to introduce young people aged 8 to 15 years old to the sport and help them to develop their running, jumping and throwing skills. The recommended age groups of 8-15 years are in alignment with British Athletics pathway with two separate strands within the camp (8-11 years and 11-15 years).
