Youth Fast Twitch Track Club

Fast Twitch Track Club- (FTTC)

The FTTC is a non-profit USATF Youth Track and Field and Cross Country organization that offers youth athletes the opportunity to compete at the state, regional, and national levels. We seek to create a team-oriented environment with core values that are taught through training and are intended for use in everyday life. The Fast Twitch Track Club will focus on youth aged athletes, from 7-18, from the Western North Carolina region. We currently have athletes from the Buncombe, Transylvania, Haywood, Jackson and Henderson counties. USATF club membership # 13-0968.

Note: This message is for elementary and middle school aged kids. The middle school cross country season does not end until October 21st and these kids are welcome to join after the school season. The high school FTTC members have been meeting since September 3rd.

The 3 Core Values of the FTTC athletes:
  1. Sportsmanship: Ethos that a sport or activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with one's competiton.
  2. Teamwork: Healthy competition in groups can be used to motivate individuals and help the team, as well as the individual, excel.
  3. Work Ethic: A set of values based on hard work and diligence. It is also a belief in the moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance character.
