Developing the Whole Athlete
At NTC, we lead with the understanding that there are factors outside of the track that influence athlete performance just as much as the things that happen on the track. Our coaches are committed to providing athletes with life skills that promote mental, psychological, and emotional well-being, in addition to the elite level training they receive on the track.
Mental Health Group Meetings
Every 6-8 weeks, we host a mental health check in for athletes with a licensed therapist and/or guest speaker.
Topics covered include, but not limited to:
performance anxiety, nutrition, etc.
Free mental health sessions
Foster a healthy environment for all athletes
Increase levels of self-esteem
Relieves stress & promotes positive attitudes
Athlete Progression Check-Ins
All athletes receive pre/mid/and post season meetings with their individual coaches to discuss training plans, athlete goals, explore new possible events, and athlete progression.
College Preparation & Recruitment Assistance
High school junior & senior athletes receive in-depth assistance with the college applications, questionnaires, and the recruitment process.
Athletes will have a complete athlete profile to share with college coaches upon the beginning of their recruitment process.
NTC holds a "No Pass, No Play" standard.
Athletes must hold above standard grades to compete/travel with the team. Progress reports are submitted on a regular basis.
