Mission Statement

To provide 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.

About Us

Premier Athletics is a Youth Track and Field Club that develops, trains, and mentors athletes from ages 6-19 years old. We consider ourselves a "Developmental Club" that takes all athletes regardless of experience. We take "first-timers" and try to develop them into competitive, championship caliber athletes. While we have developed and trained "Elite" athletes, we don't consider ourselves an elite club. And while the definition of "Elite Clubs" may have changed over the years, we do not have tryouts, cuts, or separate teams for travel meets. As long as our athletes meet qualifying standards for meets, they can travel with the team.

This is a very family oriented team. We are organized by a board of directors comprised of the parents, a coaching staff comprised of the parents, and a roster of athletes who are governed by a code of conduct that creates an environment for high achievement. We are not a club that simply wants to win; we also want to build high character, influence higher learning, and develop great scholar/athletes. We stress the importance of academics as part of building an athletic resume. In addition, we want to build ambassadors of the sport of track and field. We strive to encourage building a lifetime of habits that include a healthy lifestyle, as well as influence the love of the sport.


Through our training, programs, and mentorship, we hope to develop some of the best athletes in the country. We attempt to do this with the premise of keeping in mind the best interests of the athlete in the long-term. We do not simply hope to create this year's National Champion, but also to continue to build an athlete's training program to help them transition from youth, to middle school, to high school and on to collegiate competition. And in that span, we also hope to develop athletes from novice level to Local, Regional, National, and World Class competition.


Simply put, our goal is to provide Opportunity to youth athletes, to create Continuity in training through their development as an athlete, and make Transition through levels of competition and training as smooth and seamless as possible. Much of who we are and the vision of what we want to provide is described in the problem statement below by one of running's most acclaimed coaching legends:
