The Club Northwest Youth Team is for athletes ages 7-18 of all ability levels who are interested in practicing cross country during the fall and achieving their personal goals.

Practices will be held Tuesday and Fridays from 3:45 pm.

Each new member of the Youth Team will receive a free Club Northwest t-shirt and the opportunity to purchase a Club singlet at a reduced price.  (Singlets are only available in adults sizes.)


All practices will be held at Woolsey Stadium at King’s High School 19303 Fremont Ave North, Shoreline, WA. If you have never been there, it may be helpful to look at google maps to see where the track is on the campus.

Parking below the track by the gym is recommended.

Parents are welcome to stick around during practice and get their own workout in at the track or run on the on-campus trail system.


All practices are planned by Rod Wilcox, who has been coaching track and cross country at King’s High School for over 25 years. Rod was a high jumper at the University of Washington who went on to have a successful athletic career as a masters decathlete.

Rod’s experience in both coaching and competing in all of the track and field disciplines gives him a well-rounded background that allows him to provide knowledgeable coaching to the youth team.

Rod brings a very positive attitude to practice and is ready to help the athletes achieve their personal goals, whether it involves competing at championship summer meets, setting personal bests at the all-comers meets, or just trying different events to see what they like best.

Cross country practices will be coached by Deborah Fletcher. Deborah is an accomplished masters runner with Club Northwest. She has been running since college, focusing mostly on longer distances like marathons. She ran for Hanover College on their inaugural women’s cross country team, running at the national championships in Kenosha as a senior, and began running as a masters runner for CNW four years ago. She helped coach her daughter’s cross country teams as she was growing up and is now excited to help other kids who are enthusiastic about running. When not running with her border collie, Jacob, she works as a dentist.


Registration will be online at  Each athlete needs to be a member of Club Northwest, either as an individual youth team member or as part of a family membership. Each athlete will need to have a waiver signed by their parents. Parents working out at the track will also need to sign their own waiver.
