Press Release

The South Jersey Track Club (SJTC) in only its first year of existence has 6 athletes who qualified for AAU Jr. Olympics National Track and Field Championships in Norfolk, VA. This is exceptional for a first year club, which only consist of about 25 athletes. According to team president Michael Murray, "I was very surprised at how well our team did at the big meets, the kids trained really hard, and it is good to see the hard work pay off. Now we have got to figure out a way to finance the trip for all of our athletes". There were several clubs in South Jersey who had athletes qualify for the AAUs, this is a testament to the depth of track and field talent that exist in South Jersey. In fact, some of the best clubs in Philadelphia have South Jersey athletes competing for them. With high profile programs like Willingboro and now the new South Jersey Track Club, there really is no incentive for our kids to leave the area.
