Club Northwest Youth Team
All track and field practices are lead 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.

She ran for Hanover College on their inaugural women’s cross country team, competing at the national championships in Kenosha, WI, as a senior and began running as a masters runner for CNW four years ago. She coached her daughter’s cross country teams and is excited to help other kids enthusiastic about running. When not running with her border collie, Jacob, she works as a dentist.
