We have received a reminder notice from the Tournament Capital Centre about use of the facility.
This is a reminder to all our members and parents that the track is closed to the public from 4 - 6 pm. It is only available during those times for club member practices. Track club parents are not permitted to use the field house area (including the track) for workouts during track practice, without a wristband.
Should Masters athletes wish to arrive early to work out they will need to pay for access and get a wristband. They may access the track and field house without a wristband for practices only which take place Monday and Wednesday evenings starting at 6:30.
We certainly appreciate all parents and club members making a note of this information.
Gary Reed, a former Kamloops Track and Field athlete, continues to give back to track and field through his funding organization, Reed Athletics Fund. The fund has taken on two new athletes, and created a new position - RAF Ambassodor, to continue links with previously funded athletes. Read the Press Release, and about these newly funded athletes, or view our news article in the NEWS section to the left.
We are a growing, non-profit organization that supports youth in Kamloops and the surrounding areas. All you need is a good attitude, enjoy working with children, and the ability to take the Run Jump Throw program offered in Kamloops on October 18 (Friday 5-9) October 19 & 20 ( Saturday and Sunday 9-4) by a qualified Run Jump Throw Instructor.
The Canadian Masters AGM is scheduled for December 12 in Toronto. View the AGM notice, along with other important information about how to participate. There is also a mail-in ballot for this meeting.
Olympic High Jumper Mike Mason will be here Dec 7-17 to train inside TCC in preparation for the World Indoor Championships taking place in Sopot, Poland in March. He will be training from 10-12 and 4-6 daily. The Kamloops Track and Field Club welcomes him as do the city.
As the pressure to achieve a good winter training camp is high in order for him to qualify for Sopot, we ask for your co-operation while he is training here so that he has as few distractions as possible. If athletes and the public want to watch Mike train, they are welcome do do so from the stands. This will give Mike, and his coach Ziggy, the freedom to have quality training time.
Since 1994 the KTFC has been a member of the Pacific Sport Interior Regional Centre and has employed a full-time Coach who operates the day to day coaching activities in our club.
In 2005, the KTFC hired world renowned throws coach, Dr. Anatoly Bondarchuk, whose coaching record is virtually unprecedented. Dr. Bondarchuk has coached 13 athletes to Olympic medals over his illustrious career.
The KTFC also enjoys the support of several part-time coaches who contribute to the development of athletes from the track rascals program,to junior development program to the senior competitive program. We have something for everyone and we believe that you only need a positive attitude to participate.
