The Pride Track and Field Program is a volunteer, nonprofit organization and a member of
the United States of America Track and Field (USATF) within the North Carolina USATF
(NCUSATF). We are to provide and promote sports training and competition for its members.
We also want to support our community, recognize nationally highly motivated athletes,
attract athletes of all ages and abilities, and promote health and fitness. The Pride Track
and Field Program provides an opportunity for its athletes to develop physical fitness and
lifelong skills in a variety of school team and individual sports. Our aim and objectives are
simply to provide an environment for Track & Field to be as healthy a sport as possible and
reach as many athletes as possible. We continue to look for ways to shape the future of our
Is to develop our members into nationally recognized and highly qualified athletes. We want
to expand the level of community paricipation, build long-term charitable affiliations, and to
increase the number and levels of sponsors.
Overall, the program wants to foster a lifetime appreciation of track and field, physical
fitness and an individual athletes progress and SPORTSMANSHIP. Our program
emphasizes FUN. For a program of this nature to be successful, the rules must be followed
and enforced. Members in the program come from many different schools throughout
Onslow County. We think this creates an excellent opportunity to establish new
relationships with people who have similar interests. Our program is dedicated to treating
all athletes fairly and giving each individual an opportunity to improve the many skills
associated with this exciting, demanding and FASTEST GROWING TEAM SPORT IN THE
A member of the program requires a strong commitment to the sport, team and teammates.
We expect all members who are considering participation to discuss this with their parents.
It is important that everyone involved understands that full commitment is needed in order
for an individual to become the best athlete they can be. Participation in the program
requires time, effort and some financial resources, but we believe that it is all worth the
experiences and training that the athlete will receive from the program.
We also hope parents will support their children by attending meets, and giving positive
encouragement during the critical years of their training and development. We ask that
parents be good role models for the young athletes to follow. Please refrain from criticizing
your child, teammates, coaches and officials.
