Registration & Recruitment
2013 Track Schedule

The Michael L. Carr Acathletic® Award was established to honor the former president and head coach of the Royal Knights Track Club of St. Louis, Missouri. Michael L. Carr’s special love for youth led him in 1959 to create The Royal Knights Track Club of St. Louis, Missouri, where he served as the president from 1959 to January 7, 2003 when he left this life. Michael L. Carr‘s dedication to young people went well beyond concerns for their athletic performance. Mike knew the importance of educational, he continually encouraged young people throughout St. Louis to apply the disciple they learned through sports to their academic life. Michael L. Carr’s dedication to education and athletics and his commitment to the Memorial Day Classic is why this ward was named for him.

Michael L. Carr’s legacy is great. When we first told Mike about the emphasis The Memorial Day Classic would place on academics, Mike made a commitment to bring the Royal Knights to Kansas City every year to celebrate Acathletics. Michael L. Carr kept his promise; he attended every Memorial Day Classic until his untimely passing on January 7, 2003. We hope that every young person who receives this award will honor Michael L. Carr by reaching academic height that he would be proud of.
