The Lightning Spikes Track Club (LSTC) is located in Gwinnett County and has been in existence since August 2008. LSTC is an organization that provides track and field opportunities for youth, ages 6-18. While Exceptional athletic ability is not a prerequisite for membership, athletes must complete assessments for spring track and must meet team standards for summer track. Membership does require full commitment from parents and athletes. Opportunity for competition is provided but the emphasis is on setting personal goals and training/conditioning to attain those goals.

Our Mission

To be a leading track and field club, providing an environment to develop young athletes into elite performers while teaching them the importance of education, character, hard work, commitment, and integrity as they mature into life.

Our Goal

LSTC’s goals are to encourage and help young people to develop physically, emotionally, and socially through their involvement in track and field. They will improve their physical conditioning as they learn the fundamentals of track and field. They will build a positive self-image as they recognize their individual achievements. They will be part of a team that encourages and promotes the development of friendships, support, and encouragement of fellow athletes, good sportsmanship, and a good time.

Our Vision 

To use track and field as a forum to develop our athletes through Discipline, Dedication, Determination, and Drive. Through these development objectives, our athletes will be equipped with the tools that are essential to building character, instilling a commitment to excellence, and becoming outstanding citizens now and in the future.

The coaches and administrators of LSTC work diligently to instill the club’s core values in each of our athletes which are:


We believe that hard work can be fun


We believe in the positive influence of athletics


We believe that sportsmanship is a winning attribute


We believe in the building of character


We believe that teamwork helps individuals grow


We believe in the spirit of healthy competition


We believe in developing the leaders of tomorrow
