Mission Statement

To provide Metro Atlanta youth athletes with the opportunity to pursue the sport of track and field and provide them with all the tools to compete at a championship level.


Vision Statement

To provide opportunities for youth through track and field that transitions them into the consummate student/athlete at the collegiate level. Through our programs, we aim to develop world class athletes not just in talent, but also in character, strength, and intelligence. We strive for our athletes to be scholarship athletes on, and off the track.

Track & Field Pre-Season Outlook

The Premier Athletics Track season is fast approaching, and in it's inaugural season, the expectations are high. After a great Cross Country season, the coaching staff hopes to continue to build momentum into what they believe can be a season of great acheivements. "Last year when we decided to form this team, we had some lofty goals that were set. Our board came together, we built a solid coaching staff, and our team grew. And looking at the talent assembled, we anticipate an awesome breakout season", said Coach Charles. 


Joining our coaching staff is Ray Freeman, a USATF Certified Level I Coach to help with Middle Distance, Keith Gray, who is our conditioning specialist and helps with all-around technique and specialty events, Rosalind Wells, who also helps with long sprints and specialty events, and Tim Wells, who helps with Jumps, Hurdles, and Conditioning. They join Coach Charles along with Coach Adrienne Gilbert, who has been the Throws coach with Coach Charles for three years.

Aliyah Johnson...Sub-Bantam Athlete to Watch

The team looks to make a splash on the track circuit this season with some veterans that have followed Coach Muhammad to Premier Athletics, and a host of new athletes that hope to make an impact on the team. Starting with our youngster's, we have three new athletes that will be learning the sport and attempting to compete at a high level.

Anthony Johnson, Jordyn Roach, and Aliyah Johnson make up our Sub-Bantam team. Jordyn ran in a few Invitationals with Coach Charles last season. She looks to compete full time this year. Anthony is new to track and field. And his sister, Aliyah, is also new to track.

"Aliyah is looking very good so far. She looks to be very competitive in the Primary and Sub-Bantam Girls division this season", says Coach Muhammad. 

2012 Bantam Boys & Girls Team

Our Bantam team looks to come back just as strong as last season, if not stronger. Elijah Gray comes back looking to improve upon a Bronze Medalist performance in the AAU Junior Olympics. Also returning is Ramel Greer, who looks to build from his success last season as our lead-off man for our 4x400m relay that qualified for Nationals. After making the regional finals in the 100m, he'll be looking to arrive as a legitimate sprinter.


The Girls come back just as powerful. Rayevan Freeman and Mya Solomon returns as leaders of the girls team; Rayevan as AAU GA 1500m Champion, and Mya as a National qualifier. Joining them is Faith Hill, formerly of Jaguar TC, who captured a XC title in the fall as part of our team. But she possesses sprinter speed that will solidify our relays and make her a contender in the long sprints. We also have a few newcomers that should make a big splash, such as Tirah Plair, joining the relay teams and stepping on the scene as one of the girls top sprinters.

2012 Midget Boys & Girls Team

This year's Midget team looks to be very strong! Jalen Roach leads the Boys team back as one of our strongest sprinters. He'll be looking to get back to the regional finals..... and this time closing the deal. But he will most likely have company. Newcomer Bruce Mattox and Greg Hill will be with him to possibly make Premier Athletics one of the most competitive 4x100m relay teams in the region. Also moving up are Jevon Leonard, Junior Olympics Medalist last season in the 400m, and Katai James, National qualifier on the relay team. And we're also looking for breakout seasons from Cameron Howell and Jaylen Lowe.


Serenity Long will lead a group of newcomers that look to really explode on the track scene this year. Kayla Hunt, Gia Wright and Yterius Drew will team up with Serenity to form a 4x400m relay, and respectively compete individually to comprise a good Midget girls team.

2012 Youth Boys & Girls Team

Our Youth Boys team returns Nakai James as it's constant in the middle distance events. Moving up this year are Nasir Greer and Nasir Muhammad. Both made the trip to New Orleans last year as members of the Midget 4x400m relay. They also look to improve upon individual events to hopefully punch their own ticket to Houston (this year's venue for AAU JO's) with the benefit of an additional event.

Leading our girls is Alexia Wilson. She captured an AAU XC title last fall, and shows the makings of a breakout season. From 400m and up, Lexi should have something to say about the outcome. Joining her is newcomer Audreonna Drew, who looks to jump on the scene in the sprints. "I'm looking for this crew to be anchors in leadership for our team. They probably have the most experience with our team put together ..... they know the way we do things", says Coach Muhammad.

2012 Intermediate Boys & Girls Team

Our Intermediate Team will be led by Samuel Wells. Sam has been on the verge of National competition for two years, and we hope this is the year he breaks through. He will be joined by a group of newcomers, and a few athletes returning from a hiatus.


Ethan Gray looks to debut as a great sprinter along with JuWuan Lang and Terrell Dixon. They very well could have the makings of a good 4x400m relay.


The Girls team will return Adrienne Gilbert, our National Championship qualifying thrower. She will be joined by a couple of girls returning to the track scene. Lemer Greer and Jahzerah Burton look to get back to their track ways this season and make an impact this summer. Also officially joining the Girls is Haven Charles. Haven practiced last year with Coach Charles and ran a couple of meets; coming from Flight 400 Track Club. She made tremendous progress and is currently competing for Redan High School. As a Freshman, she is competing with the Varsity team and making great strides. We look for her to have a breakout season as a sprinter.


Overall, it looks to be a very exciting season ahead!
