The Circle City Stars is a USA Track and Field member elite youth track and field team. We compete in invitational track meets and cross country meets around North Carolina for most of the late-spring season, culminating in state, regional and national competitions for athletes who qualify. Some of our athletes have stood on the podium at national championships, most haven't, and we put as much coaching effort into all of them equally. We believe that any athlete of any age or ability with the courage to step up to the starting line and finish the race is one of us, and an athlete.
Many of our coaches have themselves been top, competitive track athletes. Our coaches have pursued coaching training through USATF and other athletic organizations, and most have had both youth and high school coaching experience. All of our coaches are certified by USATF via background check and have undergone mandatory training in coaching children safely and appropriately. We believe track and field can be fun, safe, and competitive. We think winning is fun. We think knowing you've done your best, whether you win or lose, is just as fun.
Our outdoor track and field team begins training in March. Most meets are in May and June, with some in July and the USATF national championships at the end of July.
Our cross country team begins training in early September, with most meets happening between late September and mid-November. National championships run in early and mid-December.
