3D Elite Student Athletes


Youth and their families became excited about the program, and became very competitive, qualifying at the national level of competition.  Then to facilitate the environment and team culture of "Excellence" we added the word "Elite"... Thus, we were called the "Tulsa Flyers Elite".  From the beginning and passionately today, 3D serves the youth and adults of the community.
