The Panhandle Express Track Club is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization that provides track and field opportunities for youth, ages 7 -18. Opportunity for competition is provided but the emphasis is on setting personal goals and training/conditioning to attain those goals. The club is sanctioned by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).
The club’s goals are to encourage and help young people to develop physically, emotionally and socially through their involvement in track and field. They will improve their physical conditioning as they learn skills related to track and field. They will build a positive self-image as they recognize their individual achievements and potential. They will be part of a team that encourages and promotes the development of friendships, support and encouragement of fellow athletes, good sportsmanship, community involvement and a good time.
