Welcome to the home page of the

The Cornhusker Flyers are a USA Track & Field Nebraska Association member youth club, offering an opportunity for boys and girls ages 18 and younger in the Omaha metropolitan area to participate in the sports of track & field and cross country.  Our track & field season runs from April to July and our cross country season runs from September to December.  To learn more about the Flyers track program, see our Club Information page. 

Slight change in practice plans for today (Thursday, April 17).  There's a track meet going on at Burke today, so we will meet in the parking lot next to the baseball field on the east side of the Burke campus and try to have a practice there.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

The 2014 Flyers track & field season has begun!  If you're ready to join for the summer, here's what to do.  If you're not sure yet, then we invite you to attend a few practices first (but please bring a completed information/waiver form with you).  If you have any questions about the Flyers, please feel free to ask any of our Coaches & Volunteers.  We look forward to seeing you at practice!
