Typically, elementary students run on Mondays and middle school students run on Tuesdays -- at 5 pm.  

There is a fee of $26 and racers will need good running shoes, singlet and matching shorts. 

The meets are held at beautiful locations across East Tennessee. The entry fee allows runners to participate in all 6 races. For more information contact Julia Jinks at


Swim Club and Team

The Swim Club provides an opportunity for participants to reach their highest personal potential as athletes and as individuals by promoting life-long fitness and discipline. The club equips swimmers of all levels with water-safety training, technique instruction, and endurance workouts. Through excellent coaching, participants learn sportsmanship, team-building, confidence and discipline in a fun and productive way that enhances each athlete’s body, mind, and soul. The Swim Club consists of three parts:  Training Practices (including Learn-to-Swim), Flyers Competitive Team, and Adult Fitness.

Training Practices and Adult Fitness:  These sessions are for swimmers of any level of swim ability, ages 4 to adult. 

Flyers Swim Team:  Flyers is a competitive team for middle and high school students. The season runs from early October through mid-February. 

Fall 2018 schedule is TBD - watch your email for announcement of our upcoming parent info meeting.

For an example, here's what we did last year: Spring 2017

We will run an 18 week season. January 9 (Mon) - May19 (Friday).  We will take off for Spring Break (March 13-17).  We will swim all other holidays. 

1st or 2nd - 9 week session:
