In 2017, Coach Jackson was named the Head Track and Field Coach for the 4A division Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien, which participates in the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA). Coach Jackson has also previously served as Head Coach for the Northwest School High School track and field program, the Zion Preparatory AcademyTrack and Field elementary and middle school programs, and has coached athletes in both the CYO League and the USATF Junior Olympic circuits.

Through all of his coaching experiences, Coach Jackson saw a need in the community for coaching to develop the complete athlete. He wanted provide athletes with an elite athletic coaching experience, but personalize the coaching, tailored to each athlete's strengths and interests. In order to fulfill that need, Coach Jackson started the Auburn Elite Track Club in 2013. Auburn Elite Track Club provides positive, supportive coaching to athletes who want to participate for fun, as well as intense, goal-focused coaching for elite athletes. Each and every athlete will gain the skills needed to improve their performance, and focus on reaching the maximum of each athlete's potential.
The coaching and time that Coach Jackson and his staff give are provided on a 100% volunteer basis. Coach Jackson believes that participating in track and field, or in any sport, is about more than just winning. Athletes of all levels, through guidance and mentoring, learn life-long lessons about themselves, people, and health and nutrition. We truly believe that we can make a positive impact on the community through the young athletes who are in the Auburn Elite Track Club.
We started s a small team and will continue to remain a select size in order to provide a positive and smooth experience as possible for our athletes. We have had many inquiries about joining the team, and are at capacity for the 2017 winter and summer track seasons. Participation on the team requires fees from athletes, and we will provide athletes with an estimate of costs for the upcoming seasons.
More information will be posted as we get nearer to the season which will officially kick-off in April 2017. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as soon as possible to all inquiries.
