BC Athletics has worked closely with Athletics Canada and viaSport to develop their Return to Competition Guidelines, closely examining the many factors required to host safe and successful competitions on the Track, Roads, Parks, and Trails.

As the Province this week moved into Phase 3 for sport, BC Athletics was pleased to announce another important step forward in our Return to Competition that, will now allow BC Athletics to sanction both Regional and Provincial Competitions.  In addition, they have also updated their “Return to Training Addendum” to allow for larger training groups sizes.

For important documents that must be followed in any BC Athletic Sanctioned Competition, and important guidelines that have also been highlighted, see the BC Athletics’ Return to Regional and Provincial Competition Post

Fall 2020 Update from Coach Trevor:

Power & Speed Coach 

  Head Coach Trevor Wight

For the first few weeks, likely through to the end of October, we will be outside.    We will be using the track at Yale, and nearby parks for hill-running and circuits and whatnot.  Once the wet weather sets in and we lose daylight in November, I am hoping to be able to access indoor facilities at Yale and the indoor track at ARC as we did last season.   However, should these indoor facilities prove unavailable this season because of the COVID-19 situation, I will have several contingency plans in place.   I will give you as much notice as possible.   Though our locations may change, we will make every effort to keep our practice days and times consistent throughout the fall and winter.   We will relocate over to Rotary in the spring.    

For those of you who are new to our group, we do not hold in-person practices on statutory holidays or during the school winter / spring breaks, though athletes are given very specific training plans to follow during those times.   

Please make sure your club registration is up-to-date.  You cannot train without having done so.  Please contact Christa McAuley, our club’s administrator and you can sort that out with her.   Her email address is [email protected] .    

Please let me know if you plan on training with our group this season.   I need to know how many athletes to expect so that I can plan safe practices (keeping with COVID -19 protocols).    

Enjoy the rest of your summer.   Stay active, stay safe.   See you soon. 

Warm Regards,

Trevor Wight,

Head Coach, Power/Speed Coach
