High School Athletes
Running at the next level only happens with hard work. There will be many members of the summer track team that may go on and compete at the D1 level. Many are already competing at the collegiate level and will join MBTC intermittently to train and coach.
The only way to get better is to be pushed by those who have been there, like our coaches, and to train and be pushed by those that are there now.
We hope that kids from all over the city join us to push each other to the next level. While we are a Mountain Brook organization our summer track program is open to all schools and athletes.
Junior High Athletes
The best time to make huge strides in your track career is from 8th – 10th grade. Techniques and repetition are critical in this phase. Our coaches can guide and push your athlete to the next level while they enjoy the comraderies of friends and competitors along side them daily.
The chance to train with elite High School athletes is critical in learning how to be a champion. A five minute conversation with an elite HS athlete can make a huge impact on athletes hungry to learn. These conversations can many times be heard when Dad’s voice has lost its impact.
Elementary kids, 3rd grade and above, are welcome to participate in Summer Track.
