Are you new to Alpha Crush or have questions?
Visit our Registration Information page for details about our club.


Our mission is to help athletes that want to run high school distance get ready while they can, in middle school (and earlier!)  High school distance running is challenging and takes a couple years of training. So to hit the ground running, as it were, you need good preparation.  

We provide track and cross country coaching to boys and girls ages 7 - 18 living in the north Fulton County cities of Alpharetta, Canton, Cumming, Johns Creek, Milton and Roswell.

In track, our athletes focus on the 1500m/1600m/1-mile, 3000m/3200m/2-mile events and distance relays.  As a by-product of this distance training some athletes also participate in the 800m event.  We do not train for sprint events (distances of 400m or less) or field events (such as long jump, high jump, etc.)  In cross country the distances are determined by the athlete's age division and are 2K, 3K, 4K and 5K in length.

See our frequently asked questions page for more details about the USATF youth age divisions and our registration information page for more details about our club.
