ARTC’s Elite Team is a USA Track & Field club that is singularly focused on bridging the gap from high caliber, post collegiate athletes and age group athletes to the professional ranks. We want this group to be a feeder program for our future professional squad. Currently, we are middle distance and distance focused, however, we are looking to evolve this program to a full track and field program that can go toe to toe with anyone. There are no gimmicks or shortcuts here, just head down, dedicated work. We have a simple philosophy: athlete-centered, coach-driven, and science-based. We are always learning and not afraid of thinking outside of the box.
EMBRACING THE ELITE LIFESTYLE
The Elite Team aims to take quality athletes and humans, dive into their history and work together to develop a path forward that maximizes capability. The athletes are expected to fully embrace the elite athlete lifestyle and we do our best to facilitate the resources necessary to achieve this. This group is held to the highest of standards and is not open to everyone. To join, athletes must submit performance standards that demonstrate their ability. Once verified, the athlete must meet with the coaches and other Elite Team members to ensure a good fit. This is a small, close-knit team that is extremely dedicated to their training and ARTC. We encourage athletes to contact us if they feel they have what it takes (even if they don’t currently hit our standards.) We believe in our ability to develop athletes. If we feel you are a good fit, we will offer you an 18-month probationary spot on the roster to see what we can achieve!
