A Special Message to Parents & Guardians

Our track club is perfect for your child whether she/he is already competing or wants to.

Our students range from middle schoolers wanting to prepare for their high school career, to high schoolers that want to make it to the state championships and even compete at the collegiate level.

We are proud to have trained many high school kids that participated in the Colorado state championships and even received athletic college scholarships.

Please understand, though, that while we absolutely focus on performance, we also understand the importance of making track and field an enjoyable experience. Our hope is your kid(s) perform beyond your wildest expectations and love every minute of it.
