Quicksilver Track Club 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.
QUICKSILVER IS RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE PREMIER TRACK CLUBS ACROSS THE USA
