F. H. Collins Secondary School – Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

F. H. CollinsMoving north today into the Yukon Territory for the next Canadian track.  Yukon Schools’ Athletic Association is the governing body here, and track & field is one of the sports that the league sanctions.   There is only one track meet listed on the YSAA website, and it was May 28th at today’s track.  I am going to assume this meet was their high school championship meet, but it could very well have been the only track & field meet.  This is a very remote part of the world, and this probably is the only track in the territory.  Yukon has one city, Whitehorse, which is the capital, and has a population of just over 20,000 residents.  Then there are seven other towns or villages, with populations ranging from just over 100 people to the largest with just over 1,000 people.  That’s it in the whole Yukon!  The track is a cinder track, but at least they have one.  An old photo gallery from 2007 can be viewed HERE.
