We provide coaching and training for 2 hours once a week indoors during the winter and two hours for five days a week outdoors (excluding field and meet conflicts) starting April 1 of every year.  In addition to the 7-9 meets we organize and run locally, we take our Youth athletes to additional regional and national meets outside of WV.  Meets occur all year.  Outdoor Track and Field meets are held from April until September, then Cross Country meets start in the Fall, and Indoor Track and Field meets run November through March.

Many of our Striders succeed to win Regional, National, and All-American Awards!  Many receive support to Colleges and Universities!

Any athlete participating in High School or Middle School Track and Field programs may come out and practice with the team, however please obtain approval of your school coach for this CCS training. High School students can not compete on the CCS team until after their competition season is complete.  Registration for High School athletes will be the first Monday after the final school competition.
