Mark Trail Athletic Association, Inc. (MTAA), also known as Mark Trail Flying Eagles (MTFE), headed by Coach Stephon Rivas, was organized in 1994. Our non-profit incorporation status (501c3) was established December 2, 2003.

The organization was created to give economically-disadvantaged youth an opportunity to compete in running events on a local, state, regional, and national level. MTAA serves children aged 5-18 each year. With a focus on fun and fitness, MTAA helps to develop the basic motion skills of running, jumping, and throwing. These skills in youth are the foundation for success in any sport or fitness activity. MTAA provides opportunities for kids in both developmental and competitive programs. By supporting indoor youth track and field, outdoor youth track and field, and cross country programs, MTAA establishes a platform for enhancing each child's personal fitness and athletic aspirations. The MTAA and its activities are open to all youth , regardless of sex, race, color, national origin, athletic ability, and financial status.
