Our season will end on December 11th with the National JO Cross Country meet. We will host our annual cross country meet on Saturday September 18th at the dam. USATF club practice and meet sanction insurance require AAT to follow all CDC, state and local heath guidelines. Parent and athlete cooperation will be expected to insure compliance.

Coach Carl Brasher

Why Me?

If you like to run or you participate in sports requiring endurance, speed, or strength, maybe you should sign up for track and field this year! Albuquerque Athletics Track club (AAT) offers a full range of training. Several meets are sponsored by the New Mexico Association of USA Track & Field, all building up to the State, Regional, and National meets. Everybody who participates gets stronger and faster, and learns to persist and work hard to achieve their goals. If you think you might want to try out for sports when you reach high school, then track and field is excellent preparation! Running builds the strength and endurance that all sports require. The field events include several jumping and throwing skills, which also build strength and hone technique. It's never too early to get started.

For additional details, or if you have questions, please give Coach Carl a call (328-3835) or email Coach at AAT track dot com. Also check out the track & field page!

About AAT: Twenty-three years on the run: 1998-2020 (and counting)

Albuquerque Athletics Track (AAT) was founded in 1998 and is a track & field and cross-country team for young athletes ages 5 to 18. AAT is a member of the USA Track & Field Association (USATF). In the spring and summer athletes compete in track & field meets and in the fall cross-country meets.

Athletes are taught the basic skills, techniques, and strategies to be proficient in track & field and cross-country. Athletes build confidence, learn self-discipline, and get into great physical condition. Athletes are taught good sportsmanship and to do their best and have fun! AAT’s team philosophy and program is designed to put the athletes in a position to be successful in the local meets, the USATF-sponsored State, Regional and National Junior Olympic Championship Meets.

A family environment is maintained and parents are encouraged to work out while their athletes train.

Participating in track & field and cross-country is a lot of fun and an activity for the whole family. One of our goals is to make running a life style for your athlete and the whole family. When your athlete grows up to be your age we hope they will look back on their experiences with fond memories, and will want their children to enjoy and have the same experiences and life style.
