QUIET STORM TRACK ASSOCIATION
"IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE A STORM"
The mission of Quiet Storm Track Association (QSTA) is to provide boys and girls ages 6-18 from marginalized communities’ access to a safe space that builds confidence, develops character and helps them acquire the skills needed to achieve their fullest potential in becoming productive, community minded, responsible adults.
We are raising tomorrow’s leaders on today’s playgrounds. While striving to win, our children learn about teamwork, leadership and sportsmanship, all of which can contribute to their development as solid citizens.
Our program’s focus is on after school training and conditioning of track athletes, the development of life skills, mentoring, after school tutoring, and college tours. We also provide essential services to autistic athletes.
We provide autistic children with opportunities to take part in team sports .
Enrolling your child in a sport has tremendous benefits such as endurance, strength, and general fitness, for children with autism, finding the appropriate sport can be challenging. That is why QSTA has a program that enables your child to participate in group sports.
If you feel that traditional sports might not be the best idea, it may be a good idea to start with sports activities where each member of the team contributes independently. Track and Field is an individual sport where you are part of a group. This sport allow your child to be part of a team but alleviate the group dynamics of being fully dependent on each other every second of the game. In addition, track gives children an avenue to stay healthy and teach them the value of practice makes perfect.
Registration is $50 per athlete.
(Effective Jan 1,2021 Registration will be $75.)
