Our History

Trial By Fire Youth Track & Field Club (TBF) was founded in 2008 by Kevin and Lanique Woodson with a passion and vision of transforming lives of children and adolescents by fostering a safe, healthy, and active environment where youth are nurtured and empowered to reach their full potential in every aspect of life.

Over the years, TBF has remained committed to its mission of encouraging physical activity, promoting healthy competition, and educating youth and their families on the importance of living healthy and active lifestyles through youth athletics.

Operating under the umbrella of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and a member of the USA Track & Field (USATF) national governing bodies for athletics, TBF has exposed hundreds of young people to the benefits of track and field and is comprised of dedicated volunteers with the desire to give back to the community.

Since the inaugural program in 2009, TBF has been an organization that have gone beyond athletics and focused on young people’s full development by inspiring youth to maximize their potential and providing social opportunities to enhance their leadership skills and overall personalities as youth of today and leaders of tomorrow. Realizing that today’s youth need a flexible platform to be successful students and responsible citizens, TBF has developed relationships with local organizations and community leaders to help provide young people with necessary resources to be successful in life.
