Youth Division Changes
In August 2023, Ann Arbor Track Club handed over the Youth Division to the YMCA of Ann Arbor. We at the AATC are very happy about this development, since, as some of you know, we have struggled over the past few years to garner the volunteer resources needed to sustain the program.
The Ann Arbor Track Club is extremely proud of the Youth Division, which was founded by the Club 46 years ago, as it furthers our core mission of serving runners of all ages and abilities, in addition to introducing running to the youth of this region in fun and inspiring ways. Under the 23-year leadership of Ron Beasley and recent leadership of Tim Harris, Wanda Brann and Lori Robinson, and with our excellent and committed coaches, the Youth Division has helped
numerous young runners achieve their goals.
The YMCA shares the AATC mission of providing opportunities for all to engage in physical activities. The YMCA intends to retain the primary structure and content of the youth division and will continue robust scholarship offerings. The Ann Arbor Track Club will coordinate with the YMCA during the transition and plans to continue its financial support of the Youth Division through contributions to the YMCA directed to Youth Division activities.
