2018 Prowlers Track Season

Track 2018 Season

 

The Boys & Girl Track Team, the Prowlers, is open to all kids from five to eighteen.  This program provides coaching and training techniques for events including running, jumping, and throwing.  The track season runs from April to July, with practice session three nights a week.  In addition there are competitive track meets on Saturdays.  Track meets are held at high school and college tracks around the metropolitan area. Additionally there are meets in nearby cities such as Lawrence, Columbia, Joplin, and Springfield.

Divisions

The Prowlers track team is separated into two divisions.  The mini-team is for kids 5 to 8, with its own coaches together with track meets.  The senior team is for kids 9 to 18.

Coach C.B. Cadenhead

The track team is under the leadership of Head Coach C.B. Cadenhead.  Coach C.B. has been coaching the Prowlers for over twenty years, and is considered one of the leading track coaches in the area.  He is dedicated to working with young people, not only coaching the basics of track and field, but also to teach teamwork, hard work, and dedication.  Coach C.B. also works with the older kids as well who are seeking college scholarship and aid opportunities.  The Prowlers track team is presently the only club track and field organization based in Kansas City's urban core.

Success Stories

The 2018 Prowlers track team had approximately 80 to 100 kids participating.  Due to their hard work, several team members had outstanding seasons.  The Junior AAU (Amateur Athletics Union) Championships, the season highlight, was held in Orlando, Florida.  Youth members from across the country gather at this event in order to test their skills with each other!  Two team members placed in the top ten in the country in their events, with a third person just missing making the top ten.  Several track team alumni are experiencing successful athletic careers at universities around the country (Oklahoma, Nebraska, Northern Illinois, and more).   Finally one alumni, Muna Lee, is presently coaching track at Hendrix University.  Lee went on from our program to be a proud member of the United States Olympics team!
