-Welcome to QUICKSILVER TRACK CLUB-


QTC was founded in 1979 to give meaningful experience in the sport of athletics to boys and girls beginning at age seven. Our emphasis as always been on the STUDENT-athlete, underscoring the basic fact that without academic achievement, the athlete does not have an arena in which to perform.

Our program provides an opportunity for our young people to compete regardless of their ability…and, the more they compete, the better they become. They meet other young people from all over the country, and from all around the world.

We are committed to teaching the correct basic skills of running and conditioning which are the foundations for all sports. We stress scholarship, and insist that our young people look at athletics as a means of obtaining an higher education. But more than anything, most of our young people have a fun filled year.

WE ARE NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING track & field clubs in the United States.

2015/2016 SEASON IS UNDERWAY, & WE ARE ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS. CLICK EACH TAB BELOW TO GET MORE INFORMATION

Quicksilver’s mission is simple: to produce well-rounded citizens who are prepared to successfully compete not just in sports, but in life.

Our vision is to encourage students to aim high, to transform their dreams of college into reality, and to envision the rich rewards that come from the pursuit of educational excellence.

Quicksilver Track Club was founded in 1979 by the late Earnest L. Dixon. Click here to read more about Mr. Dixon.

QUICKSILVER TESTIMONIALS


JACQUELINE MADISON


Quicksilver Track Club means to me a new family, life long brothers and sisters, and friends and memories that can never be replaced. I had the opportunity of observing what great coaches looked like, and how selfless and dedicated they were to us not knowing that this example will serve me well in my own life. Quicksilver meant a better life for me, an upgrade shall I say, it helped me make better life decisions. Til this day I still chuckle at something Coach Dixon and Coach Foster said to me “never trust a man shorter than 6’0,” I guess that’s why I married a man that’s 6’6. Quicksilver allowed me to set goals for myself and know that such goals were attainable. Quicksilver allowed me to see the world, allowed me to meet a lot of great people, and allowed me to better myself. Quicksilver was the best decision my parents made for me and the best decision I followed through with. Quick, Quick, Quicksilver….

Former SEC champion and All-American Jackie Johnson enters her third season assisting with Oregon’s hurdles, sprints and relays groups. The former Jackie Madison was a key member of the South Carolina track team from 1998-2001. She was on the Gamecocks’ first SEC Outdoor Championship team in 1999 and developed into one of the conference’s top hurdlers under the direction of Coach Curtis Frye. Johnson won the 2001 SEC title in the 60-meter hurdles and also earned All-America that season. She was an eight-time scorer at the conference level in the 60-meter hurdles, 100-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles and led the team to a fourth-place finish at the 2001 NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Johnson is the current South Carolina record holder in the 55-meter hurdles.
Prior to Oregon, Johnson served as an assistant coach at her alma mater for two seasons (2007-09). Before that, she worked as a certified personal trainer in the Columbia, S.C., area before moving to Atlanta, Ga., where she spent time as
both a personal trainer and licensed massage therapist.
Johnson holds a bachelor¹s degree in exercise science from the University of South Carolina (2001). She also completed study at the Columbia campus of the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy.
She is married to Oregon’s Associate Head Coach Robert Johnson


MILTON CAMPBELL


My name is Milton Campbell and I serve as Southeast Regional Director for Urban Youth Workers Institute, a national organization that develops leaders who work with at-risk youth. I am both a fan of the work of Quicksilver Track Club and also a recipient of Quicksilver’s leader development process. Raised in a single parent household, Quicksilver provided the mentoring and coaching I needed to navigate my life to where I am today. Quicksilver is more than just a sports program. They provide “The Village” that helps to steer young men and young women in the right direction during those more critical years in their development. What amazes me about Quicksilver is that they have a unique way of developing athletes into students, into adults, into leaders that shape their community for the greater good.

Quicksilver helped to open the door for me to attend and graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a full track scholarship. While attending Carolina I was a 13-time All- American, 2-time NCAA Champion, 10-time ACC Champion, ACC Record Holder, and American Collegiate Record Holder. This was made possible because of the foundation of hard work laid through my development at Quicksilver.

After college I had the opportunity to compete professionally for 10 years. During that time, I represented the United States of America at 6 IAAF World Championships where I won 3 IAAF World Championship Gold Medals, and 3 Silver Medals. I also garnered 1 World Record. Again, the seeds that lead to these accomplishments were planted and cultivated by Quicksilver Track Club.

There are many great organizations that have developed some phenomenal programs across our country. Yet, there are only a few organi-zations that develop phenomenal people. Quicksilver Track Club has been in the business of developing people for over 25 years. Some of the fruit of Quicksilver Track Club has been lawyers, doctors, bankers, educators, clergy, professional athletes, entrepreneurs, nurses, and the list goes on and on. Quicksilver Track Club is an organization that has a track record of producing world changers. Quicksilver has been a stabilizing force for at-risk families in Southwest Atlanta for some 25 plus years.


HASAAN STAMPS


Quicksilver is family, it is the place that helped develop who I am as a man. All my success in my life personally, athletically and professionally I owe to my formative years in the Quicksilver family. Not only were Coach Dixon, Foster, San, Dube, Harper, Hampton, Robbins my coaches they were extend family of father figures, cool uncles and mean aunties that needed to put an overly hyper young man in his place more times than not. But in my time there they taught me to win on the track and in the game of life. I will forever be indebted to all the time those selfless individuals put into making the man I am today. When I have children please believe they will come up thru Quicksilver as we continue the new legacy under Coach Rucker who was a brother from another mother to me and has always pushed me to be the best I can be at all I do. Not sure if you all say it still but I am the originator of Quick, quick quick SILVER!!!!!! I LOVE QTC!!!!!
