History & Philosophy
The Northwest Flyers Track Club was started in 1987 to help girls in Northwest Houston participate in youth track & field.Fred Newhouse, a US Olympic gold medalist in track, was one of the primary organizers of the club.The early success of the club led to expanding the membership to both boys and girls.
The mission of the Northwest Flyers Track Club is to foster the development of youth track & field in Northwest Houston and to provide long-term growth opportunities to athletes through their association with the sport.
Our youth development philosophy is balanced and not overly obsessed with winning.However, the achievements of the club are impressive, with more than one third of our athletes qualifying for the Texas State Championships and the National Junior Olympics Championships.More importantly, over 95% of our athletes have gone on to college and many have received academic and/or athletic scholarships.
The club averages about 250 athletes per season (ages 6 – 18) and is smaller than some Houston based clubs.However, bigger is not always better and our size allows coaches to give athletes individual instruction and guidance. The leadership fosters teamwork, mutual respect, encouragement and a fun family atmosphere.
The Northwest Flyers Track Club is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt and non-profit organization.We offer some hardship scholarships to eligible youth who wish to participate in the program.
