Faster, Higher, Stronger.

Striders Athletics

Since its inception 35 years ago, Striders has encouraged young people to channel their energies into physical activity and to persevere in pursuit of their goals.

While the track and field team has produced athletes of national and Olympic caliber, the most notable achievements of the program can be measured by personal growth and an increase in self-esteem experienced by participants at every level.

Chautauqua Striders also encourages and promotes participation in the sport of track and field through USA Track and Field youth programs which are available to area school districts. Programs like USATF’s Run, Jump, & Throw foster physical fitness and provide a fun introduction to the sport.

Youth Development

This track and field program is designed for ages 14 and under. Children learn and develop basic athletic skills during June and July. Competitions are based on age and give the participants and their parents a solid introduction to the sport. Young athletes can choose the events in which they compete based on their individual interests and abilities.

The Track and Field Club

Nationally competitive, this program is intended for athletes 13 and up who participate in USA Track and Field events as well as regional, national, and international meets. In addition to honing their physical skills, athletes are mentored by coaches who help them gain self-confidence and motivate them to realize their individual potential. Former athletes attest to the impact the track and field team has made in their lives because it taught them the value of hard work, discipline, and education.
