Juan Cabrillo Elementary recently launched the Dolphin Club, a nonprofit, PTA-sponsored organization that offers track and field training for students. The club is led by Melvin Jones, a Pepperdine University track coach and physical activities specialist at Juan Cabrillo.

The club’s objectives are to foster a positive, fun and supportive atmosphere for track and field training. Proper running form, controlled breathing and stretching techniques are stressed. The group meets weekly through June 8.
