Testimonials

I appreciate the fact that Dreadhead Sports allow other schools that are not close to participate. Track is my sons element and this team has taught him how to be humble and a good competitor. I love how they have javelin, long jump, running jump, hurdles and various races. Everything is very fair so everyone has a chance to win. The owner is a great leader and has instilled good values in the program. It is literally everything we were looking for. I just wish there were more seasons to join.  

Selena, Outside School Area

Absolutely great experience. Wasn’t too sure what we were getting into but it better then imagined! Perfect for numerous reasons. Track in its self. Preparing for another sport or even just pure exercise and competition! Would recommend to anyone!
