Accountability

We strive to push your child and keep them moving.  We train from one drill to the next with short water breaks in-between.  Safety is the most important part our program.  Any child who chooses to hit, bully or say inappropriate things will be asked to sit out.

If He/She does it again they will be asked to to leave.  This is not a day care or babysitting program.  We are here to coach, inspire and get children and parents motivated.  If you see your child doing something they should not, I strongly suggest to help them to stop.  Children’s safety and feeling comfortable around other children is top priority.  This is not a program where your child will have multiple chances on multiple days to correct their behavior. They will quickly be asked to sit out. If they choose not to listen you will be told to take them home.

Priorities

Your Procrastination will not be our Priority!

We hold parents 100% accountable for their child.  It is on you to arrive early, work with your child and cheer on ALL RUNNERS.  Cheer on the slowest runners who really needs the push and support!

What People Have to Say

{

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!

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.
