About AX Athletics
West End Neighborhood House’s Above Xpectations Track Club provides approximately 150 youth in grades K-12 the opportunity to compete in world class track and field competitions. The team practices two hours per day, four times per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays for conditioning and Saturday and Sunday for field events, relays and sprint mechanics). In addition, student athletes travel on weekends to compete in local, regional and even national track meets. The team competes as far away as Louisiana and Texas throughout the season, including a meet in Florida through ESPN. Meets typically last 12-14 hours, while others last even longer (ESPN is 9 days x 12 hours; Jr. Olympics is 9 days x 12 hours).
