The Shocker Track Club concept was developed in 2010 by Wichita State University Track and Field Director and Head Coach, Steve Rainbolt, and Assistant Head Track Coach, John Wise.
Coach Wise and Volunteer Coach Emily Green Maier approached longtime Official Darren Muci about leading an initiative to form a track club that would: (1) Provide Officials and volunteers for Wichita State University Track and Field and Cross Country meets, (2) Help raise funds to support local track and field initiatives, and (3) Help develop and support Elite, Masters/Open, and Youth track teams.
Monthly meetings of volunteers began in December 2010. Shocker Track Club was incorporated in 2011, and is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.
