FOR PRACTICE TIMES & LOCATIONS
MACKTRACK ELITE SJ&RC is aware that students participate in athletics for various reasons:
3. Personal Improvement
Therefore, as an organization, we commit to the following:
· Offer athletes a safe and enjoyable experience
· Provide the greatest possible opportunity for athletes to participate in both practice and competitions
· Promote personal improvement in skills, physical condition and knowledge of the sport; and
· Promote programs of excellence that accomplish the above and lead to success on and off the track.
In order to achieve these goals, we hold the following positive expectations for
the primary stakeholders in our program.
Is to provide an opportunity for youth to develop spiritually and physically through Track and Field. To assist youth in enhancing their academic development by providing a positive environment, with knowledgeable mentors to assist youth in their academic achievement. To foster a safe environment which nurtures, develops, and exposes youth to a competitive atmosphere that garners self-confidence and self-respect. To serve the public interest by allowing maximum participation for anyone who desires to reach their full potential as an athlete, student, and individual. To create an educational and competitive experience within an atmosphere of sportsmanship. We strive to develop and realize individual and team potential by promoting high standards of competence, character, civility, and citizenship.
STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
MACKTRACK ELITE SJ&RC believes that participation in athletics can provide students with the opportunity for personal growth. Teamwork, the mental and physical challenges of training and competition, and the experience of winning and losing graciously and respectfully are important life lessons that will serve athletes well in their future.
Character is an important component that requires time and effort. Coaches and parents can help students develop such habits by discussing, modeling, and reinforcing the desired attitudes and beliefs over time. We also understand that participation on this team demands a commitment that involves both dedication and sacrifice. This is required of not only athletes, but also of coaches and parents.

HELP OUR YOUTH ATTAIN THEIR GOALS
Track and Field is relatively inexpensive; however, our small tuition fee does not fill our budget requirements. Additional expenses are needed towards facility rental, race entrance fees, transportation & equipment. Some of our athletes are also unable to purchase uniforms, shoes, or travel to training camps. We are asking families and business to donate an item, cash, gift card/certificate, or service. This is a great chance for families or local businesses to support its community’s youth. If you would like to make a company donation purchasing equipment such as track equipment, banners, uniforms or a tent, we will dedicate it to your company. MACKTRACK ELITE athletes are some of the hardest driven and academically gifted kids in the state of Colorado. Any donation you give would be much appreciated. By donating to this nonprofit organization, we will acknowledge your business or your family at our next event.
This donation may be tax deductible. Thanks for your support.
