2014 Elite Program

Because of our success over 20 years in training athletes for national competition, this year the Gliders Track Club will offer another option for training. We have created a new elite training division for the very serious athlete which is limited to the open, post-collegiate, high school, and masters age groups. 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 a week from February to 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. Elite athletes that qualify for USA National competition will receive some financial assistance.

New for the summer of 2014, the Central Florida Gliders Track Club is offering an elite middle distance summer track program for high school juniors and seniors looking to master their event(s) and boost school year PRs to meet university standards.  Elite high school sophomores, freshmen and rising freshmen are also welcome.


The summer season runs from May 11 to August 2 (12 weeks) and culminate with peak performances at the AAU National Club Championships in Orlando, FL July 9-13 and AAU Junior Olympic Games in Des Moines, IA July 25-August 2. Click here for more information www.cfgliders.com/elite.htm.


All athletes must complete a 2014 registration form prior to attending their first practice. Visit our "Club Registration" page for additional information.
