Who We Are

The Charlotte Flights Track and Field Club had its humble beginning in 1991 with 20 boys and girls.  Over twenty years later, we are proud to report an average of 250 athletes participating annually and 57 National Championships. The Flights are still running, on and off the track.

What We Do

 We are agents of social change.  Our youth set goals, see increased academic and athletic achievement and experience valuable positive relationships with their peers and adults.

Why We Do It
