The Bozeman Track Club started in 1989 and was founded by Dave Skelton. After identifying the need and ambition of local high school athletes for indoor track & field, Dave started the club with only six athletes. In 1996 the club began running an outdoor track & field season. And finally, in 2002, the BTC took on the roll of being a middle-school cross-country program for the Bozeman School District and surrounding area. Today, the club now has over 200 members actively participating in XC, indoor, and outdoor track.
At its core, the club’s goals are to encourage and help young people develop physically, emotionally, and socially through their involvement in the sports of track and field and cross-country. We believe this helps our student athletes 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, good sportsmanship, encouragement of fellow athletes, and a positive experience in all aspects.
