2015 Elite Programs

Because of our success over 20 years in training athletes for national competition, the Gliders Track Club offers additional training options. Our elite training division is for the very serious open, post-collegiate, high school, and masters age group athletes. All our coaches are Level I or Level II certified and coach all the events in track & field as well as cross country. However, we especially specialize in the hurdles, jumps, distance and multi-events. This select group will train 4-6 days per week from February through July in specialized and sometimes individual training sessions, depending on the event. This elite training group is designed for the athlete who has made a commitment to improve their skill base to compete in state, national and international competition. The cost of training in this elite division is $100 per month, excluding the cost of a uniform, competition and travel fees, etc. Elite athletes that qualify for USA National competition will receive some financial assistance.

Distance athletes should click here for additional information www.cfgliders.com/elite.htm.  Non-distance event athletes should contact Coach Craig Wise
