A big congratulations goes out to Riley Simmonds, Arata Nakanishi, and Zoe Unger who were recently awarded by BC Athletics for finishing 2nd (Arata and Riley) and 3rd (Zoe) in their respective divisions in the Lower Mainland Cross Country Series. These athletes received very nice plaques that helped brighten up winter training. Well done, Royals!
For many Valley Royals members, annual fees are now due. Members can choose from full year memberships to seasonal registrations, depending on their level of interest and area(s) of focus.
Please review the 2022 fee chart, which includes a small increase in fees from the previous two years to help offset rising expenses. Fees can be paid by etransfer to club administrator Christa McAuley: [email protected] or by cheque. Contact Christa to arrange delivery of fees paid by cheque.
Valley Royals Distance Athlete Halle May signed her letter of intent this week with University of New Brunswick and will be attending the school with a scholarship in Track and Field and Cross Country. Halle has been a core member of our club for the past four years and has been an example to those athletes who train with her. Halle has shown constant dedication and her positive attitude and work ethic set a tone in the distance group that is contagious. She has been a pleasure to coach and deserves every bit of the success that she has experienced. All the best on your upcoming season Halle and congratulations on your acceptance to University of New Brunswick.
