This is our Annual Alumni Dinner Dance. How many Alumni, Family and Friends will come out of the wood works to have a good time and help a Good Thing keep going? Every Spring after a Grueling but Aspiring Indoor Season we kick off our sneakers and pull off the sweats to clean up and step on the dance floor. We show that our talents are limitless.
The student-athletes had a successful indoor season with Milrose Games, New Balance Games, Colgate Women Games, Mid Season Invitational Championships, USATF NY Championships and Hershey National Indoor Championships. The Metro Eagles Track and Field Team under the leadership of Head Coaches J. Wilkerson and R. Hopkins have been doing this for a long time. We have a strong support TEAM of Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Parents, Family, and Professionals who VOLUNTEER their time to make this WORK. And to you we say THANK YOU!
But we need donations to keep this going. We have this Dinner Dance for Fun and we would like our Alumni and friends to commit to donate just $1 a month to help us with keeping the program alive. You would be surprised how far that could go. Or those who still live in the NY area to donate 2 hrs a month would be fantastic. Just remember what this team meant to you during your time with the organization. We could always use the help. And the donation of fruit and water is vital towards practice. Give us a call. But come out and join us on the dance floor or drop us the cost of a ticket as a donation through our donation button. And always remember:
“Metro Eagles always soar high toward,EXCELLENCE!”
HAPPY 2017 TO ALL ATHLETES
PEOPLE WHO WHOM ARE JUST GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE TO SMELL THE COFFEE.
LET’S GET BUSY!!!!!!
MAKE THIS YEAR SPECIAL AND MAKE IT YOURS!
COME ON FEET, DON’T FAIL ME NOW….OH YEAH!

These young student-athletes have run the course of being an outstanding student-athletes this year. The ultimate trip is being able to compete at the AAU or USATF National Jr Olympics. It is very hard getting there. We just came back from Club Championships at Disney’s ESPN Wide world of sports. Our Team was led by 11 year old Wesley Noble with 3 Silver medals, followed by Jelani Johnson with medals in 3000m , 1500 m and 4 x400, and Natalia Taylor with a silver in the steeplechase and bronze in the 1500m. We had many PR’s and a host of other stand outs. Congratulations to the Metro Eagles Track and Field Team for a job well done. Now Onward and Forward!
The Annual Roy Wilkins Invitational will be held this Saturday @ Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY. The meet will begin at 10 am.

METRO EAGLES ROYALTY FOR THE YEAR 2015!!!! HOLA!
A wonderful year was had by all three of these young student-athletes. More is sure to come form these 3 dynamic trio.Christian had so many awards he needs a web site of his own. He loves 1st and really hates to settle on 2nd or 3rd. You better believe that his brain is calculating his moves on what he must do , to turn those 2nd and 3rd places into 1st. interviewing either of these young student-athletes whether Wes, Chris or Little Ms Alana none of them likes to lose. They are all A students and all are calculating on how to win their next event. and giving their all at practices and hate core work outs.
