Coached by former Central Michigan standout sprinter Johnie Drake, Courageous Track Club offers two seasons; indoor track and field during the winter and outdoor track and field during the summer. This program is designed to provide youth athletes running, jumping, and throwing skills for specific track and field events. The atmosphere will be fun, informative, competitive, and sociable.


Courageous Track Club is dedicated to educating young athletes in an open atmosphere while participating in sports. Honesty, loyalty, and communication are values CTC admires most. Confidence and faith will guide the choices of CTC coaches and athletes. Belief in oneself is contagious and will help increase self-confidence in each athlete. Through trials and tribulations, faith will be the cornerstone through tough decisions and events. Courageous Track Club’s motto is, “Work hard, Work smart.” It is imperative to train hard, but it is also important to know when rest and recuperation are required. Knowledge is limitless, so CTC will always be in search of new and innovative ways to coach.


Courageous Track Club’s goal is to inform and teach young athletes the importance of self-confidence, team work, and health through the participation in sports. The experiences each participant encounters as a member of Courageous Track Club will be beneficial for the duration of their life.
