HERSHEY’S TRACK AND FIELD
Boys and girls ages 9 to 14 are invited to participate. Elementary grades 3 through 6 use a field day each Spring to participate in the national Hershey’s Track event scheduled with cooperation of the schools and City Recreation. Registration for 3rd through 6th grades is completed through the elementary schools and no fee is required.
Registration forms are distributed and collected for all 3rd-6th grade Springville elementary schools.

Home schooled children are also encouraged to participate with their grade level. Parents must sign a registration form and bring it to the Recreation office in advance of the event.
