Our mission is to provide each of our athletes with the knowledge, focus and understanding of how to achieve their goals in life and on the track. Through professional training methods, experienced coaches and the support of our parents we can achieve these goals. The participants of the program will have the opportunity to receive sport specific instruction from accomplished coaches and athletes in our community. They will experience the benefits of good fitness, healthy competition, increased self-esteem and learn that with dedication and hard work you can achieve your goals. We support effort as opposed to talent. We evaluate each student athlete and target specific goals for each individual. They gain confidence through an emphasis based on effort and our acknowledgement of their improvement. Our youth experience fitness benefits, joys of competition, and team unity of Cross Country and Track & Field through an education-based program. The level of each athlete will be taken into consideration as we develop an individualized training and performance plan for the season. Velocity will also develop tomorrow's young leaders within our own community. When our athletes see the progress that can occur through regular practice on the field they can carry over that concept to their studies. In this and other ways we encourage academic achievement . As much as we want our children to know the high morale and camaraderie that comes from team competition and victory - an equally important role of regular athletic activity is to develop life long healthful habits which will benefit them long after they've entered adulthood. Members of Velocity are aware at all times that they are the public face of the club and as such impeccable social skills are required. The standards of behavior we expect, and they exhibit as a consequence, allow them to integrate effectively into society. Members of Velocity go on to be both invaluable citizens in the community and positive role models to younger generations.
The Lord Truly Bless me with the Velocity Track Club Family! On July 14th to the 17th, we participated in the 2021 AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) Club National Championship at Satellite Beach, Florida. Pertaining to our team performance and the team coming together after the meet, this was the best Outdoor National Championship I attended. There were approximately 3,000 athletes registered for this event. Teams from throughout the United States, plus teams from the Bahamas, Canada and Puerto Rico were in attendance. This was the hardest competition we faced all year! Reviewing the performance list prior to the competition starting, Velocity was slotted to win approximately 10 medals. Medals were given to the top 8 individuals and relays in their event. Our athletes peaked at the right time! I believe it was a combination of the training, family and friends traveling to Florida to support them and the Lord Blessings. They surpass the performance list and earn 24 medals (1- Gold, 5 - Silver, 5 - Bronze, 3 - fourth place, 5 - fifth place, 3 - sixth place, 1- seventh place and 1- eighth place medals).
