Does Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 restrict collecting city location from kids under 13?

The FTC provides that "a home or other physical address including street name and name of a city" is considered personal information under COPPA.
Does that mean that city name alone is restricted as is street name + city?
We are trying to give kids the ability to compare their sport speeds (i.e. running, sprinting, etc.) to other their own age in their city or the entire state. It seems odd that the city is considered private information. We would like to store that a 9-year-old in some city X sprinted at Y speed. It seems like it is benign information to store. If it is restricted, is there another way to store that data in a COPPA compliant way?"
