D.C. Express Track Club, Inc
Founded in 1984 in Decatur, GA. Dekalb County Express Track Club, Inc. (D.C. Express) is a 33-year old 501 (c) (3) nonprofit community based youth track & field development/competitive program.
D.C. Express participate in various track and field meets in different parts of the United States. D.C. Express members have attracted attention as winners, record breakers, student-athletes and as being well disciplined athletes. The excellent performances have not only created a fine reputation for D.C. Express, but have resulted in scholarships for D.C.

As a developmental/competitive program, we require uniforms, equipment, and normal operating expenses. All coaches are volunteers. We have kids who need monetary assistance by way of a “donation" to participate in our program.
Your support and generosity enables the Club to achieve its goal of enhancing lives and communities through track & field.
The D.C. Express Track Club focuses on the physical, mental, educational and social development of its members. D.C. Express is a year round program. Our activities are intensified during the spring and summer competitive months. However, we maintain our training and development in the off season with modified track and field instruction.
