Mississippi Valley Track Club-MVTC is a non-profit organization offering a youth track & field program for boys and girls ages 8 to 18 years old. MVTC will be starting our 22nd year in 2018. The coaches have received USA Track & Field coaching's national certification. Mississippi Valley Track Club is affiliated with the Bettendorf Park Board. Mississippi Valley Track Club's philosophy Is Run fast and have fun! Everyone makes the team and can compete in track meets. Athletes are taught the mechanics of running fast, using starting blocks & field events. The goal is to develop the athlete and improve their performance throughout the season. Practices begin mid-April and ends after the AAU Regional state meet and the USATF Iowa Association Junior Olympics, unless the athlete qualifies for the Regional and National meets. Senior High School track athletes can join the team after their spring school track season is completed.
