2017 Cross Country Season

AAT will hold its 2017 Cross country sign-up Monday August 21st at the John Roberts dam. The Dam is located on the East (mountain) side of Juan Tabo north of Montgomery; the dam is between Manitoba and Spain. Signup will start at 5:30pm and end 7:00pm. You can prepare by filling out an application. The first practice will be Wednesday, August 23 at 5:30pm at the same place. If you miss August 21, perhaps because you're in another part of the country viewing the total solar eclipse, you can sign up at any AAT practice session, Monday, Wednesday or Friday at 5:30pm.

For all the details about youth cross country, please see the cross country page and download the flyer. The schedule of meets has been posted on the Meets page.

Why Me?

If you like to run or you participate in sports requiring endurance and speed, maybe you should sign up for cross country this year! Albuquerque Athletics Track club (AAT) offers a full range of training. Several meets are sponsored by the New Mexico Association of USA Track & Field, all building up to the State/Regional meets. Everybody who participates gets stronger and faster, and learns to persist and work hard to achieve their goals. If you think you might want to try out for sports when you reach high school, then cross country is excellent preparation! Running builds the strength and endurance that all sports require. It's never too early to get started.

For additional details, or if you have questions, please give Coach Carl a call (328-3835) or email Coach at AAT track dot com. Also check out the Cross Country page!

About AAT: Twenty years on the run

Albuquerque Athletics Track (AAT) was founded in 1998 and is a track & field and cross-country team for young athletes ages 5 to 18. AAT is a member of the USA Track & Field Association (USATF). In the spring and summer athletes compete in track & field meets and in the fall cross-country meets.

Athletes are taught the basic skills, techniques, and strategies to be proficient in track & field and cross-country. Athletes build confidence, learn self-discipline, and get into great physical condition. Athletes are taught good sportsmanship and to do their best and have fun! AAT’s team philosophy and program is designed to put the athletes in a position to be successful in the local meets, the USATF-sponsored State, Regional and National Junior Olympic Championship Meets.

A family environment is maintained and parents are encouraged to work out while their athletes train.

Participating in track & field and cross-country is a lot of fun and an activity for the whole family. One of our goals is to make running a life style for your athlete and the whole family. When your athlete grows up to be your age we hope they will look back on their experiences with fond memories, and will want their children to enjoy and have the same experiences and life style.
