to the support of Lynx System Developers, Inc., and the company President,
Doug DeAngelis, the club is able to provide team members with a strong
sense of identity. Membership costs are kept to a minimum, but every athlete
is expected to contribute to the cost of their membership. In addition,
athletes will be expected to take part in fundraising activities whenever
part of our commitment to helping athletes compete at the highest level,
our team will attend major competitions. These may include Junior Olympics,
USATF Junior Nationals, USATF Regional Championships, etc. Obviously there
are significant costs accompanying these objectives and we welcome contributions
to help defray these costs. Please contact us to discuss the best way
presence of National Champions among the athletes competing for Lynx is
a clear indicator of the level of success our athletes have the potential
to achieve. We believe that intelligent coaching that respects each individual's
goals and ability level can ensure a minimum exposure to injury, and a
maximum chance of success. If you would like to know more about the club,
our athletes, or our coaches, please contact us.
