Flash Athletics was founded in 2014 by a group of supportive parents, whose vision was to start a comprehensive youth running program placing prominence on exemplary performance in academics, athletics, and community service. With the help of several volunteer members, Flash Athletics formed a Board who pulled together to invest in a program with the vision to mold Champions for Life! Since then, the Board has been involved in designing the uniforms, flyers, and website and offering encouragement to give participants the confidence to succeed and become stronger in their ability to overcome challenges.
Flash Athletics stands to be as a successful youth running club inspiring youth athletes to be committed and dedicated to being Champions for Life!
Part of our mission is to motive, teach leadership and sportsmanship, teamwork and self-discipline while instilling a sense of community. Flash Athletics, provides our youth an opportunity to help Stop Childhood Obesity, which statistics in the United States show that between 16 and 33 percent of children and adolescents are obese. Overweight children are much more likely to become overweight adults and Flash Athletics looks to do our part in reducing this statistic and build Champions for Life.
Flash Athletes will have the opportunity to reach their full potential by first focusing on their education and then their athletic ability. They will develop over the season and gain a better understanding of themselves, while learning the sport of track and field. Flash Athletics will work with our student athletes to combine Education and Athletics and build Champions for Life.
