About MOBettah

The MOBettah Track Club is a community-based program, formerly the MANTUA ELITE Track Club, established in April 2005 to be a preventive alternative that provides training in the area of track and field for youth ages 5 to 18. Lynette Matthews and Michele Brooks, founders of the program, are highly ambitious track and field coaches with a welcoming approach to track and field with diverse coaching backgrounds.  Together, they had been coaching track and field with another organization when they decided to venture out on their own to establish a more track and field based program.
