The Palau Track and Field Association, for the past few years has been conducting elementary Athletics competitions, however the number of kids who participated in this event has been decreasing and kids have lost interest in the sport, so this year, in August, Palau Track and Field held an Athletics Clinic with all the PE Teachers and introduced the Kids Athletics program to them.
After the Kids Athletics Clinic the PE teachers met and decided on implementing the Kids athletics program as a way to peak interest in the sport in their schools once again.
The first school to conduct a to conduct Kids Athletics had over 600 athletes competing at the national track in Palau, the teachers of the school planned ahead and had children and parents bring in boxes and other recyclable materials in order to build their own equipment and decorate them in school colours.
After the clinic, Palau Track and Feild was asked by some elementary schools to come and help them with some ideas on how they should integrate the program within their own schools
