North Vancouver School District Track and Field program is open to all students in grades four through seven. It takes place in April thru to the beginning of June each year, culminating in a School District Track and Field meet in June at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby. Mini meets will be held in North Vancouver at both Braemar and Highlands school locations after school. The qualifying meet will be held at Sutherland Secondary School. The District meet will be held at Swangard Stadium, Burnaby.
2021/22 Track & Field Season
The Track & Field Season extends from April to June and is open to all Grade 4-7 students. Permission forms are due April 25, 2022. Track and Field is a district wide program which culminates in a meet held at Swangard Stadium. Braemar competes in a zone with Larson and Highlands Elementary schools. Since it is a competitive program, only a certain number of students will qualify to represent Braemar at our Zone Qualification meets. However, we will be hosting Track and Field Mini-Meets, which are open to all students in Grades 4-7 to participate.
