U.S. Elite International Track and Field Club was established in October 2005, and has since changed its name to U.S. Elite International Track and Field, Inc. (U.S. Elite) after incorporating under the state of Maryland and achieving its 501(c)(3) tax exempt status as a non-profit/charitable organization. The organization is a member of the United States Association of Track and Field (USATF) and the Potomac Valley Association in Maryland.
U.S. Elite is comprised of athletes who have a passion for the sport of track and field and wish to continue to excel in this sport during or after their collegiate years, as well as at-risk student-athletes at the high school level, seeking scholarship opportunities to continue their track and field and academic pursuits.
Our organization provides room for growth and promotes the physical wellbeing and welfare of individual athletes. The programs foster scholarship, leadership, sportsmanship and ambassadors of physical fitness.
We believe Your passion becomes your legacy when you serve others, being who you are, doing what you love.
To create a structured program that would foster the athlete's need for success and to help them excel in the sport. This included using all necessary or available resources to ensure the athletes have organized practices, travel together, support each other through workouts and track meets, and have an effective mean of communication.
Our determination to create a place where athletes are able to focus on their individual growth, gave rise to U.S. Elite International Track and Field Club.
To provide resources to underprivileged student and student athletes that would otherwise not have access to scholarships, support, or guidance toward achieving their scholastic dreams.
U.S. Elite International Track and Field provides these students with the necessary resources to apply for college and successfully navigate the process from application through graduation. Providing them with the tools for success is our vision.
We remain committed to giving each member the opportunity to feel safe, heard, and empowered and to know they have a voice, and we encourage them to focus on their goals. We are an organization built on love, compassion, and service for every youth we have the privilege of serving. Now more than ever, that commitment continues.
"I just wanted everyone to know that preparations for school for fall 2010 was a success and would not have been possible without God who worked through the members of the U.S. Elite Program. They were of tremendous help to me. I now attend Livingstone College in North Carolina. Also I participated in my first cross country meet on September 11, 2010 where I was placed 2nd in the females, section."
