Peninsula Track and Field Club will begin its 2014 season in March when enrolment starts for both new and returning members.

Although its Masters group athletes have continued their Saturday morning practices throughout the winter with the emphasis on the throwing events, for the younger athletes Spring training will see them return to their running, jumping and throwing as the warm weather returns.

While efforts continue in fundraising to replace the aging surface of the current track, the Club will still provide the essential coaching and development services which have started thousands of young Peninsula and Greater Victoria athletes on their road to district, provincial, national and international success over the last 40 years.

The basic cadre of Club coaches will again be leading the training sessions, but the Club will also be looking for additional coaching assistance in sprints, jumps, hurdles and middle distance running for the 9-12 year old group.

For former athletes or adults interested in developing their coaching skills, the Club offers assistance in attending basic instruction courses, as well as mentoring from its experienced coaches in these disciplines.

Enquiries for further information, training schedules, and other details of the Vancouver Island 2014 Track Meets, can be directed to Lesley Foster, Club Registrar, at 250-656-5660.
