Community Programs

Education, fitness, and family fun at a world-class facility.

The Armory Foundation is committed to celebrating and welcoming the Washington Heights, Inwood and Harlem communities.  To that end, we offer a number of programs and initiatives:


CityTrack and Little Feet:

Youth track & field programs

The Armory Foundation offers two track and field programs for students in grades 3-8 who go to school or live in the Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem communities of NYC.

CityTrack is designed for middle school students, grades 6-8, to learn and enhance their running, jumping, and throwing skills. You can learn more about this special program here.

Little Feet engages 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to have fun and enjoy the sensation of movement through track & field and related activities.

Sessions run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, from mid-October to late May. Please contact Director of Youth Programming Alberto Aquino at if you have any questions.
