Next Dimension

Track and Field Club

NEXT DIMENSION TRACK AND FIELD CLUB was founded in 2008 by former Rutgers NCAA Division 1 All-American Celeste Battle. Next Dimension is a team of athletes between the ages of 13 and 18 that in 2017 completed their 10th Junior Olympic Season. This Christian youth traveling team that follows the team principles of commitment, positive attitude, excellence, integrity, respect, health and safety has placed Christ first, family and academics second and our sport and community third. Next Dimension’s mission is to develop youth athletes: mind, body, and heart. They believe the best athletes are a well- rounded citizens that strive to achieve both on and off the track with a spirit of excellence and humility. Participation in track and field has become a “hands on” experience that has helped our athletes to learn and develop the principles that we stand on which will ultimately build productive citizens and great student- athletes. Annually, they enter competition in the Youth Division of USA Track and Field, the governing body for our sport in the United States. Each year they train to compete at the highest level, traveling across the Nation to face the best of the best. Next Dimension has successfully assisted our graduating senior athletes to continue their academic and athletic endeavors at the collegiate institutions, by working with athletes on college choice, recruitment (biography, coach contact, official visits, letter of intent signing), athletic and academic scholarships and admission applications.

Next Dimension athletes have gone on to study at the following universities: Central Michigan University, Louisiana State University, Coffeyville Community College, Monmouth University, Northeastern University, Cornell University, Rutgers University, Rowan College at Gloucester County, East Stroudsburg University, Lehigh University, Rowan University, Muhlenberg College, Widener University, Queens University.

2017 Jessie Owens Award for Meritorious Service – Ron Jackson

Ron Jackson (“Mr. Jackson”), former President and member of the Executive Committee of the United Age Group Track Coaches Association (UAGTCA), has given over 40 years of service to the Philadelphia track and field community.

Ron became actively involved in Track & Field while serving as the Program Director for the Oak Lane Youth Association (OLYA) in 1977. His interest grew in the sport and he later founded and served as Head Coach of the Philadelphia Flames Track Club, an all-girls track club, primarily formed to meet the demands of the, at that time, newly instituted Title IX federal mandate.

Ron’s drive and interest in the management and governance of youth track and field cultivated. As a result, he joined the National Youth Athletics Committee of the then National Governing body of ‘The Athletics Congress’ (TAC). Ron was later selected and served as the Referee of the National Junior Olympic Games for 11 years.

As the national organization changed names to ‘USA Track & Field’ (USATF), Ron assumed the position of Vice-Chair Administration of the National Youth Athletics Committee.

Ron returned to the local Mid-Atlantic association where he served as President of the association for 2 years.

Ron later left the USATF to take over the reins of the UAGTCA in 1998 as Director of the organization. He singlehandedly led the UAGTCA to great success in the organization and conduct of youth track and field competitions. Ron’s innovation and vision to take the UAGTCA to the “next level” was achieved through the UAGTCA Youth Invitational, a premier summer competition that draws athletes from around the country as well as from abroad.

Ron’s continued service in the track and field community has provided many youth, officials and volunteers countless opportunities to expand their knowledge and growth to a sport that is for everyone for life.

Ron a retired Equipment Engineer with the former Bell Atlantic Corporation, now Verizon committed over 32 years of service before retiring in 1997.

Mr. Jackson was a master-mind and a perfectionist in all he did and has left a lasting legacy as well as a HUGE footprint in youth athletics. Ron will truly be missed.

“ I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” . 2 Timothy 4:7-8
