The Hiram Hornets Track Club (HHTC) is for Boys and Girls, ages 5 Yrs Old thru 18Yrs Old as of May 31st of the year that they are participating, who want to learn about the fundamentals of track & field and have fun while doing it.
OUR MISSION... is to make sure that the athletes have fun, learn new skills, and most importantly, learn how to constantly strive for improvement in all that they encounter. We offer the opportunity to compete against other clubs in the area, and for the athletes to develop their skills throughout the season. We hope that the development of these lifelong skills will allow the athletes to advance, if they so choose, into the track & field and cross country levels of high school, college, and into their adult lives.
INTERESTED ATHLETES do not need prior track & field experience to participate. Our staff of volunteer coaches will teach beginners the fundamentals of the sport, as well as, to continue the development of the return athletes on the team.
HHTC is a member of the Cobb County Youth Track League (CCYTL) and under affiliation with the United States Track and Field Association (USATF)
We participate in numerous youth track meets primarily held in the spring. Meets will start in late February and in April, athletes will compete to qualify for the District V championship (Paulding County, Cobb County, City of Marietta, City of Smyrna) and hopefully advance to the Georgia Park and Recreation State Championships in Augusta, GA the first weekend in May of each year.
Even though competition is exciting, our coaches believe that proper training, and over time, a constant improvement in performance and the learning of healthy, lifelong skills is of the most importance.
Competition age is calculated on the age of the athlete as of May 31st of the current year
