Rockford Park Districts Therapeutic Recreation Team invites children and youth ages 5-21 to try BlazeTrack and Field, an eight-week program for newcomers with disabilities related to mobility, vision, or orthopedic impairment. Participants can use a wheelchair, or compete ambulatory. The program meets at the Indoor Sports Center (subject to change) in Loves Park on Thursday nights, March 29-May 17, to practice for competition in the Illinois Games at the end of the season. The program fee is $30 ($39 non-resident); there is an additional fee for Illinois Games participation. Registration continues throughout the season by mail and in person at Park District Customer Service downtown, 401 S.
