Rolesville Lightning

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of donors to meet our funding needs. We can build a sponsorship package to fit any budget, but our ultimate goal is to develop a long-term relationship with your organization. Donors can deduct contributions under IRC Section 170 using our number (81-4303428). Our exempt status is under Section 501(c)(3).

We invite you to support Rolesville Lightning Track and Field Club as we pave the way for professionalism and success for the track and field community in Wake County. Please use the Sponsorship Form to indicate your desired commitment. We look forward to hearing from you and working for you.

We use our track program as an educational tool to teach youth athletes how to reach their full potential not only on the track, but also within their communities and at school. As Rolesville Lightning work to develop athletes, we will also prepare them for the highest level of competition; the United States of America Track and Field (USATF) Junior Olympics (JO) National Championships.

Our athletes will compete at local and regional track meets during the spring and summer, in preparation for the National Championships that takes place in July. Every year, over 8,000 athletes compete at Nationals under media coverage. In 2016, 7 of our athletes qualified to represent our area Nationally. A year later in 2017, 20 athletes qualified to compete at Nationals. In 2018, we are looking forward to even more participation at Junior Olympics (JO) National Championships.

Our Mission, Vision, and Goals


Our mission at Rolesville Lightning is to teach every athlete an appreciation for track and field and a healthy lifestyle, while enhancing their self-confidence and discipline through consistent practice, guidance, and an opportunity for competition. Our organization strive to make a positive impact through our “Commitment to Excellence”, both on and off the track. We will set standards of integrity, honesty and professionalism by providing high quality programs while empowering and developing the future leaders of tomorrow.


We insist that our athletes have fun, strive for academic excellence, model sportsmanship on and off the field, and run with a strength of purpose at practices and during meets.


Through their involvement in Track & Field, athletes will: • Improve their physical conditioning and learn skills related to Track and Field • Build a positive selfimage as they recognize individual achievements • Build a strong athletic foundation in preparation for all other sports • Build a positive self-image as they recognize individual achievements • Be part of a team that encourages and promotes the development of friendships, support and encouragement of fellow athletes, good sportsmanship and having a good time

On behalf of the Rolesville Lightning Track and Field Club, we would like to extend this opportunity to you and your organization to become a sponsor for Rolesville Lightning Track and Field Club. Your sponsorship will not only provide much needed supplies and scholarships for our athletes but it will reward you in knowing that you helped to provide a safe, positive and educational experience for both child and parent.
