What our members are saying.
To me success is not measured by just who wins the race, it is also measured by who tries the hardest and who performs to the best of their ability. Track and field lends itself to the pursuit of personal goals better than any other sport. That’s why it’s so great; in our club everyone can be a winner!- Ed Moore
An athlete’s only true opposition is themselves; what an athlete puts into sport determines what the athlete will get out of it.- Christine Laverty
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. -Aristotle”- Jason
