About Track and Field
Our Mission is to nurture and develop track, running, race-walking, jumping & throwing skills in a competitive environment and to promote team spirit and respect of others on the track and off.
We will be competing within the New Jersey Striders Track & Field Club (NJS), which consists of 14 Teams. Our meets are contested in April, May & June, and are developmental in nature. We compete in this league because of easy accessibility, and it offers a program that is second to none.
The New Jersey Striders Track Club, Inc. has been in existence since 1978. It is considered to be one of the largest clubs in New Jersey. They have organized many regional & state events over the years, and have been organizing the youth spring track program since 1980.
We are also members of USA Track & Field (USATF), and we will be participating in their National Junior Olympic Track & Field Program, which is contested in June & July. The mission of USATF is to foster sustained competitive excellence, interest, and participation in the sports of track & field, long distance running and race walking. The USATF has 61 associations around the country.
