Run Fast...Have Fun!

2020 Season Update
Mississippi Valley Track Club has decided to cancel the 2020 season.
After great consideration, we feel this is the correct decision based upon these unprecedented times. Our main concern is the health and welfare of our youth athletes, their families, our coaches and the other competitors. The travel risks combined with the close proximity of the athletes and fans during track and field meets causes concern, in fact, this concern has led the governing bodies to cancel most meets - AAU State meet, USATF Developmental/State/Regional meets and the National Junior Olympics meet have been cancelled. Another factor in our decision to cancel is the challenge of finding a track to practice. As everyone knows, we practice at Bettendorf High School; however, the track is closed due to the State of Iowa closing schools and cancelling spring sports, which means the earliest we could start practice is June 8th. This late practice start date does not allow enough time to properly train and condition the athletes.
So, based upon all the reasons above, we feel it is in the best interest of everyone not to move forward with the season.
This does not mean the club is going anywhere, in fact, just the opposite, we have already started discussing and planning for the 2021 season. We plan to be back stronger than ever and look forward to a very successful season in 2021.
