Track program is focused on training and developing young athletes in sprints and middle to long distance. 

Cycling programs focus on road, mountain biking and cross cycling fundamentals for structured development of individual racing abilities.

Duathlon athletes will compete in both running and cycling events.


We work with each student athlete and their parents to establish appropriate priorities for physical performance, proper nutrition, and balanced mental health through training, competition, and participation in AAU, USA Track and Field (USATF) and USA Cycling activities and events nationwide.
