GSTC Youth Team


The Garden State Track Club has a thriving youth team that practices and competes all year round. For indoor and outdoor track, they have practices 3 times a week at Highland Park High School.


March 13th – July 2nd 2017 (16 weeks):

  • Monday: 6:30 pm – 8 pm
  • Wednesday: 6:30 pm – 8 pm
  • Saturday: 9:00 am – 10:30 pm

While these practices aren't mandatory, all team members are encouraged to participate in team practices. These sessions are facilitated by GSTC coaches, and the goal of the youth team is three-fold:

1. Learn to love and enjoy the sport

2. Build self-confidence and a work ethic

3. Exercise and develop stronger capacity as an athlete.


Adults are encouraged to train with the adult team. More information about that group, which trains at the same time and place as the youth team, can be found here. Parents can sign children up for the youth team here, or email with more questions.
