USA Track & Field
Sanctioned by USA Track & Field, the national governing body of track & field, long-distance running and race walking in the United States, ALABAMA TRACK CLUB is one of only a few youth track programs in the state offering an outdoor track & field season for all ages. Club members automatically become active members of USA Track & Field for the upcoming year and are registered to compete in nation-wide track & field events sanctioned by USA Track & Field.
As part of club membership the ALABAMA TRACK CLUB purchases each of its athletes a membership to USA Track & Field, which is a requirement to compete in the State, Regional, and National Junior Olympic competitions and the National Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championship meets. USA Track & Field also provides club members with liability insurance while training in scheduled practice sessions, participating in sanctioned events, and traveling to and from sanctioned USA Track & Field competitions.
ALABAMA TRACK CLUB is committed to promoting youth fitness and building better citizens in our community by educating youth, parents, and coaches about the positive results that come from leading a physically active, drug-free and healthy lifestyle. To this end the track club is a member of the "Be A Champion" health initiative implemented by USA Track & Field.
