Western CT Flash - Winter Track
Established in 2001, the New Fairfield Flash Track Club has sponsored Cross Country and Spring Track and Field teams for middle school aged athletes from New Fairfield and Sherman.
This year the New Fairfield Flash will be sponsoring the Western Connecticut Flash for the ‘off-seasons’ of winter track and summer track. The WC Flash will be open to any athletes from New Fairfield, Sherman and the surrounding towns.
Coaches Jim Keller and Shawn Sorbello are both highly experienced youth and high school track coaches and will be leading the new club in its inaugural season.
