Welcome to the home page of the
CORNHUSKER FLYERS TRACK CLUB

The Cornhusker Flyers are a USA Track & Field Nebraska Association member youth club, offering an opportunity for boys and girls ages 18 and younger in the Omaha metropolitan area to participate in the sports of track & field and cross country.  Our track & field season runs from April to July and our cross country season runs from September to December.  To learn more about the Flyers track program, see our Club Information page. 

The 2017 Flyers cross country season is starting soon!  A practice schedule is available on the Practices page.  Practices are most Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. at Walnut Grove Park (151st & Q - meet at the east shelter house), and some Saturdays at 7:00 a.m. at Lake Zorinsky (meet at the shelter house by the boat dock on the east side of Lake Zorinsky off the 156th Street entrance).  Newcomers are welcome to attend a few practices and try it out, but please bring a completed information/waiver form with you.  We look forward to seeing you at practice!

National Junior Olympics 14 Flyers competed in 27 events at the USATF National Junior Olympic Championships at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas from Monday, July 24 to Sunday, July 30.  Many events had 40 or 50 or sometimes 60 kids compete, so just finishing in the top 20 is an accomplishment.  Our top 20 finishers:
Sophia Scott, 9-10 Girls mini-javelin throw, 86 9, 4th place
Ava Akough, 11-12 Girls shot put, 32 1, 13th
Eliana Akough, 15-16 Girls discus throw, 115 7, 15th
