BCX is the most established and decorated youth track and field program in New Jersey. We produce champions. Our athletes are some of the best in America in their events. They receive the training they need to excel in high school sports, and maybe even compete for college athletic scholarships.
Practices are held at Teaneck High School on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday evenings. We also practice sometimes on Fridays. Competitions are typically Sundays. See the practice and meet schedule HERE and subscription rates HERE.
BCX philosophy is simple: Athlete Centered, Science-based and Coach driven. That means each athlete has their own set of goals and customized, age-appropriate workout plan executed in a safe, friendly, family-oriented environment. Our science-based training methodology helps athletes enhance their performance and general wellness.
For the past three years, BCX has dominated both the state and regional AAU and USATF Track and Field Championships.
On an average, 90 percent of our athletes who train for the full-season qualify for the AAU Junior Olympics national championship; 10 percent of the qualifiers finish top 8 USA in their events.
Last year 47 BCX athletes qualified for the AAU Junior Olympics. Three dozen athletes traveled to Houston for the national championship.
Three of our athletes were 2016 AAU Junior Olympic All-Americans, and a half dozen runners and throwers had top 25 finishes.
