Wolfpack
Competition Team

The Wolfpack Comp Team is for hardworking athletes who seek a more structured, focused, and competitive experience.

Do your kids love track & field or trail running? Do they ask to register for local 5k races and love the competitive environment? Do they understand the basics but want to learn more? Are they looking for a little extra knowledge and training before starting high school?

We are proud to have multiple National Champions and All-American runners among our alumni.

Comp Team Info:

ALL COMP TEAM ATHLETES MUST HAVE A USATF MEMBERSHIP TO BE ON THE TEAM!

What does that mean? Wolfpack is affiliated through USA Track & Field and we compete in USATF events, so it’s required that our athletes be USATF members.

Part of this membership includes athlete age verification. This process can take a couple of days to complete, so it’s imperative that membership and age verification be completed BEFORE your athlete can compete in any meets; this includes track & field AND cross country.

Memberships are good for 1 calendar year and expire on December 31st, so if you registered your athlete for 2024 track, they will be good for 2024 cross country. Get your athlete’s membership here!
