In 2014, the Phoenix Flyers Track Club are going to look sharp! Out with the grey and black uniforms and in with the slick fluorescent green Phoenix bird on a black background. These uniforms will “Pop!” as Coach Todd explains and says it will be easy to find our runners out there on the track during meets.
Practice for the Phoenix Flyers will be on Monday, January 6th, 20014 at Mountain Pointe High School in Ahwatukee. Practices will be from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for youth athletes and 6:30-7:30 p.m. for adult athletes on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
With 20+ athletes in our first season, we are hoping to bring in at least double that number this year. Also, we are looking to build up our adult (open/master) athlete division because there are a number of meets for adults (18 and over) throughout the valley over the track and field season as well.
We also are adding a wonderful addition to our coaching staff this year – Coach Leigh Fox Young. She is a Masters National Champion and Age group ranked athlete in numerous field events and will bring great energy, dedication and experience to our club.
So with only 2 months left until track season, make sure you talk to friends and family about coming out and being part of this wonderful Flyers team.
We are all excited on what could become an even more impressive season than last year.
See you all in the new year!
