Rolesville Lightning Track Club

Our desire is to teach every athlete an appreciation for track and field and a healthy lifestyle, while enhancing their self-confidence and descipline through consistent practice, guidance, and an opportunity for competition.

Although our track club is newly developed, the association is not. Coach Hillary Leacock is Rolesville Lightning’s head coach. He has over 25 years of experience both as an athlete and a Youth Track and Field Coach. Coach Leacock specializes in the sprints, long jump, high jump, proper form and technique and general conditioning.

Coach Leacock attended North Carolina State University and represented his country of Trinidad and Tobago on an international level. Under his leadership are several coaches with strong history and experience in track and field that are excited to be able to extend their knowledge to and help our young athletes reach their full potential.
