ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Since 1993, founder and Head Coach, Charles Carter, started the Penn Hills Eagles Track Club as a feeder program to help develop athletes at elementary, middle and high school levels. Our added goal is to develop and prepare high school athletes for college levels. This program is not a recreational program but a developmental program which builds on teaching athletes basic skills on running, body mechanics, fundamentals, sportsmanship, nutrition, discipline, field techniques and character building. We have dedicated coaches that enjoy the opportunity to develop the athletes every year. The Penn Hills Eagles offers a year round track and field program which includes cross-country and a preseason strength and conditioning program. Our youths travel to local, regional and national venues to compete. The team has traveled every year all across the country both regionally and nationally. Since 1996, the Penn Hills Eagles Track Club has taken over hundreds of athletes to regional and national competition levels and holds several top 6 national “All American” awards.
