DTSP Wolf Pack Track Club Meet

Nassau, Bahamas - The DTSP Wolf Pack Track club will host its first annual track meet on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium. The event will be called the DTSP Wolf Pack/ Walter Callander Track Meet and will feature competitions in sprint races - 100m, 200, and 400m as well as relay and hurdle races. There will also be middle distance races including the 800m and 1500m. Athletes from other track clubs are invited to join in the events, which will also include javelin, shot put, and discus throws as well as long and high jump.

The club, which has been in existence for four years, is led by head coach Larry Clarke, whose passion for track started out with the interest of his own children in sports. He then travelled to the US to become certified and since then, the club has grown to over 30 members. Club captain, Gareth Lewis competed for Team Bahamas in the recent Carifta Games.

DTSP Wolf Pack is a track and field club which has been in operation since May 2013, with a mission to "provide young, aspiring athletes the opportunity to attain their maximum athletic potential through the Development of Technique, Speed and Power (DTSP); to foster high self-esteem, self-discipline, dedication, determination, goal setting and goal attainment, both athletically and academically; to provide a structured environment conducive to producing well-rounded young adults; and to offer athletes educational opportunities through athletic scholarships.”
