Update on 2021 Season

We are still under Provincial Health Restrictions, with participant limits and reduced venue sizes set by both BC Athletics, and our host Cities.  This has made planning for the season extremely difficult, and we apologise for the delays in communication.  We have been hosting preseason training at Swangard Stadium Mondays and Wednesday for athletes 14 and older, and have recently extended this to include the 13 year olds.  These sessions will continue for older athletes through the summer, in addition to the regular sessions below.

It is our intent to begin our Tuesday and Thursday practices at Mercer Stadium April 6th, with athletes born in 2009 – 2012 starting at 5:30 PM and athletes born in 2008 and older starting at 7:00.  Registered athletes will be sent more specific details within the next few weeks regarding arrival times, attendance recording and new health regulations.  At this time, all athletes born in 2012 or earlier who have registered and are on the waitlist are being asked to complete their registration, emails will be sent this week to enable this.  New registrations will continue to be placed on a waitlist, and we will confirm their participation as soon as possible, adhering to the restrictions we are governed by.

Event specific training for the 2008 and older in throws, jumps and specialisations at Central, Swangard and Mercer will be confirmed upon request.  Please contact Coach Sean at citytrackdad (at) gmail.com if this applies to you. 

Sadly, we have to cancel/postpone our Track Rascal program (athletes born in 2013, 2014 and 2015) for this season. We have always shared space with soccer and football, and current restrictions on field usage and maximum occupancy loads do not allow for this. Having no other space, we have no options available. We will maintain our waitlist and continue to review options as the year progresses. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, given this late date. 

Thank you so much for your patience and continued support of our track and field program.   

Best Regards,

Ian Coutts
