Who We Are
Kentucky Express Track and Field Club's mission is to help serve Central Kentucky area youth in competitive and recreational track and field. We aim to acquaint and educate youth regarding the fundamentals of the sport of track and field, and to develop sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, and fair play.
We aspire to instill discipline and integrity in our youth athletes through the sport of track and field.
We are a competitive traveling team that competes in Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and USATF events. We participate in approximately 5 or 6 meets throughout the summer and families travel with the athletes. To keep our costs low families pay for their own lodging, travel and food costs. Our goal is for every athlete to qualify for the Junior Olympic Games. There are several mandatory meets in which athletes compete to advance to the next level of competition.
If an athlete advances from the District meet, he or she will participate in the Regional meet. Our culminating event and goal is for every athlete to advance to the AAU Junior Olympic Games. This year the Junior Olympics will be held in Des Moines, IA during the entire week of July 29 - August 4, 2018.
