Plainfield Tsunami Track Club played a huge role in teaching my two children about the importance of practice, good sportsmanship and what it means to be apart of a village. Our family made true friends who we still value their friendship to this day.
For our family, sports have played a major role in cultivating an attitude of excellence and providing opportunities for personal growth and development. It is important for an athlete to be placed in an appropriate setting with committed, quality coaches to realize the full benefit of being involved in athletics. Our family is grateful to the Plainfield Tsunami Track Club to have provided our daughter Victoria Vanriele the safe space to flourish as an athlete and as a young person, while developing character traits that would help her go on to excel in every part of her life.
We have been part of the Tsunami Track Program from when my boys were 6 & 9 years old . It was a positive, encouraging and fun experience! All of the parents supported their kids and ours as well. We had a great relationship ship w/ all the coaches and our 2 boys developed lots of skills and friendships! As parents we also hung out together in Plainfield and traveled to many track meets together all over the state & country. It was many years of hot days and loads of fun! It kept my boys busy and out of trouble! They stayed focus on practices and competition! We love the Tsunami Track Program ! The Fox Family 🦊
I am writing to offer my support for the Tsunami Track Club. My youngest daughter joined Tsunami at around age 8 and competed for them for 5 years. She LOVES track to this day, and this appreciation for the sport was definitely nurtured and enhanced by her experience at Tsunami. She was treated with respect and support, but she also was pushed outside of her comfort zone to reach beyond what she thought was possible. The support and coaching of her coaches was extremely beneficial in her athletic development. In addition she made many friends during her Tsunami years, and it was great to see the kids all supporting and challenging each other at practice, and rooting for each other at the meets. I can't explain truly how much coach Tony and his staff helped my daughter develop friends along with the self-confidence, skill, and mental toughness needed for her to go on to a very successful high school track career and a similarly successful collegiate track career. We are truly a "Tsunami Forever" family.
It has been nearly 20 years since My wife and I first met Coaches Tony and Kevin at a small track meet that we hosted. Ever since then we have observed how the coaches of the Tsunami Track Club managed their team with discipline, dignity, and grace. Even as a competitor of Tsunami T.C., we witnessed so many of their athletes’ progress through the youth and high school ranks. A number of them have moved on to do great things in college and beyond. Whenever I think of youth track and field programs the first that comes to mind is Tsunami TC.
