Miami Gardens Xpress Track and Field Program - Past
MGX is a non-profit organization which started in 2005 with the sole purpose to get local kids off the streets and provide an alternative outlet in track and field games. With a humble beginning and lack of training facility, MGX trained their athletics on a dirt and grass field with the minimum necessities and support at Norland Middle School.
With these limitations, the Miami Garden Xpress program has overwhelming exceeded expectations and placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place in regional, state and national competition circuits such as the ESPN AAU National Club Championships and Junior AAU Junior Olympic Games.

The Miami Gardens Xpress program has grown since 2005 and for the last four years, we have had more than 250+ kids participated in the program which is more than any track program in the state of Florida.
