Our Mission

We are passionate about providing elite coaching, training, and competitive experiences for highly motivated high school track and field athletes.

Our PROGRAM

 

We meet for training on Monday and Thursday afternoons each week at a variety of locations in the Northshore area.  Locations are communicated with plenty of lead time.

 

The usual yearly routine sees training begin in June and end in February with options to compete during the summer Outdoor Season, the winter Indoor Season, or both.

CURRENTLY, we are accepting athletes for the 2022 INDOOR season which runs from NOV '21-FEB '22.  Follow this link for our 2022 INDOOR MEET SCHEDULE on Athletic.net.

Training becomes event-specific after a conditioning phase and is planned to reach the specific goals of each individual athlete with their feedback and input as a key ingredient in their training plan.

Competitive opportunities ranging from local to national to international are a main component of the Northshore Track Club experience.
