Atlanta Track Club offers a competitive youth cross country team in the fall and a competitive youth track team in the spring. The fall cross country team introduces youth to the basics of cross country through a fun-filled program aimed at developing athleticism, team building, and leadership skills. The youth track team is an opportunity to introduce kids 11-14 to competitive track and field.   

Thanks to a grant from Laureus USA, Atlanta Track Club is able to expand the youth track team this season and partner with the Police Athletic League (PAL). The youth team will now have coaches to support distance, sprint, and field events and children in Atlanta's westside community will have greater access to the sport of track & field. 

*Note: Team members must have valid USATF membership with association listed as Georgia and team listed as “Atlanta Track Club” to compete during the summer track season in USATF meets.  Membership is the responsibility of the team member. CLICK HERE FOR USATF MEMBERSHIP
