Welcome to the web site of the Northeast Tennessee Track & Field Club. Our club nickname is "Slipstream" which explains our web address. The Northeast Tennessee Track & Field Club was founded in 1993 to provide new opportunites and additional exposure to the sports of track & field and cross-country. Over the years we have added Southwest Virginia to the area that we serve and as a result we are going by our nickname more and more.
Since 1993 we have served over 900 athletes in our programs. The youth program of our club is designed for those 7-18 years of age. We have a regional approach to membership and have no specific ties to individual schools. We actively encourage athletes in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia to join our program. Promotion of track & field in a fun and positive manner is the emphasis of the club. We believe that the instructional process is as important as the competitive part.
In addition to our youth program, the club has taken a leadership role in the area to recruit and train officials for track & field. Many of the parents of our members have become officials and have continued to officiate area events even after their children left our program. Members of our official's group are in great demand for meets at all levels.
The club has also been very successful in planning and hosting meets. The Slipstream Track & Field Club has been involved in hosting small events to national championship meets being held in the area.
