2022 AAU Club National Champions
The vision of Above Xpectations Track Club (AX Track) is to give youth athletes from Delaware and surrounding areas, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, a chance to compete in world class track and field competitions, and more importantly, to prepare them to
take an academic/athletic step beyond high school while living a safe, drug free, healthy lifestyle and pursuing their goals.
AX Track gives athletes an opportunity to travel around the country to compete with nationally ranked athletes, improve their academic performance, and be a member of a team of elite performers. For our athletes, meets and races are more than a competition, they're also fun.
Regardless of whether or not young athletes win a medal or achieve a personal best, they'll have the opportunity to make new friends, create a lifetime of memories, and live a life Above Xpectations!
Above Xpectations Track Club urges understudy competitors to seek after scholarly accomplishments all through their schooling. A 2.5 GPA is needed for all secondary school level participants. Extra mentoring is accessible to all competitors. AX track endeavors to ensure that all competitors have the chance to attend a university, by offering required assets, for example, SAT preparation, mentoring, reading assistance, college workshops and tours.
Our coaches are USATF certified and have had 10+ years in the track and field circuit. We boast a group of coaches who have experience in the high school and collegiate athletic atmosphere, as many are former college student athletes. With our knowledge and expertise, we develop young athletes by teaching them the proper running mechanics, event specific technical skills, strength and conditioning, and how to be successful outside of the track as well.
