Club History & About Us


Well known Carifta stand-out and former national team member, David S. Charlton, started with a vision and one budding athlete, Douglas Lynes-Bell. After years of dedication, he has developed a team now comprising over 40 student athletes. Star Trackersis a non-profit youth development organization, officially “born” in 2001 and holds membership in The Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA), the governing body for track and field in the Bahamas.

The Club is a specialty club with specialized training for sprints, middle distance and hurdles. During 2002 the club moved to a new level of organization by way of a constitution and executive body to help with its continued development and operation. In 2010 the Club instituted a Kids Athletics Programme for athletes ages 5-10 years headed by Coach Luther Rolle. In anticipation of our collegiate athletes return home upon completion of university, Coach Charlton started our seniors programme, Star Elite Athletics in 2011. Antillio Bastian was one of Star Elite's first transfer member.

Coach Charlton is ably assisted by Coach Rudolph Ferguson (IAAF Level IV Certified) and Coach Luther Rolle (IAAF Level I Certified). All coaches are committed to youth development and have a passion for the sport. They volunteer over two (2) hours daily (Monday-Friday) to training of the athletes and ALL day on Saturdays when there is competition both locally and internationally. They also serve as mentors, counselors and positive role models for our athletes, the nation's future, helping to build bodies, minds and character.
