The American Track League will be a series of international caliber track and field meets throughout the United States. The meet structure is designed to be quick and exciting with little lag time between events and with live music played throughout the meet. The traveling house band of the meet series is the Boston based Velveteen Playboys, led by front man Paul Souza. The feel of the meet will be much like that of a track meet within a rock concert.
Accessibility to Fans
The seating design in the various stadiums will allow for post-race interaction between the athletes and their fans. For field events competitions, the fans will be invited down to the competition areas to get up close and personal with the athletes. This format ensures a very unique athletic experience for all fans.
Meets with a purpose
The main goal of the track meets will be to promote the importance and raise the awareness of the childhood obesity epidemic that is affecting children in today’s society. World Class athletes will visit schools in each city to promote the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle. Children in surrounding communities will be invited to attend the meet free of charge. Community events such as children’s races will be conducted in conjunction with the meet. Other on site events and activities will allow kids to be active throughout the meet.
