Track and Field

The Cape Fear Flyer’s Track & Field season takes place in the spring/summer (March- July). The program teaches kids the fundamentals of running, throwing, and jumping in a fun, competitive, and team-centric environment. We compete in a few local meets, as well as traveling to meets in Fayetteville, Myrtle Beach, Charlotte, and Durham. In the past few years, the Flyers have had several athletes qualify to run at the USATF and/or AAU Junior Olympic National Championships. We have had athletes medal at these events in running and field events, including national champions. We also plan to host a meet each Spring.

The Cape Fear Flyer’s Cross Country season takes place in the fall (September - December). The program teaches kids the fundamentals of long distance running, in a fun, competitive, and team-centric environment. We compete in several cross country meets locally, as well as the USATF State Cross Country meet at Hagan Stone Park near Greensboro, and the Foot Locker South Regionals at McAlpine Park near Charlotte. Over the past five years, the Club has earned multiple first place Team awards, and many top individual podium finishes, including two individual State Champions. The Flyers also participate in local trail and road races during the season, including our own Monster Dash in the Carolina Beach State Park.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    One of our Coaches brought to use a concern about the deuteriation of hierarchy during our practices and a feeling of a lack of support. They also pointed out that we had lost some coaches to other organizations in the area who did not charge coaches for their children to train with the group. We reached out to a previous head coach and with promises of more support from the board he agreed to be head coach this season. This brought back some coaches who previously had been unwilling to return to come back. The board also decided that the coaches will not have to pay the registration fee for their children to train with our organization.
