The Aurora Flyers are a nationally ranked Junior Olympic Track team founded in 1988 right here in Aurora, Illinois. It is our goal to train and develop our athletes to be able to get college scholarships, compete in the Olympics for Team USA, and even turn professional. The Aurora Flyers range in age from 6 to 18 years old.
The team is ethnically diverse and from all socio-economic backgrounds. Coach Tom Boatright has been our leader since it’s inception and is directly responsible for turning our kids into champions both on the track and in school.
Coach Tom Boatright has coached the Aurora Flyers Track Club for over 10 years and has turned out some of the top male and female track athletes in Illinois. He was also invited to the Chicago Bears training camp in 1975 because of his own speed. He was on the rookie roster along with Walter Payton.
