NEWS and Tentative Practice Schedule for 2021 Track & Field Season

Hello Everyone,

We have some updates as well as the 2021 Spring/ Summer Training Schedule…

NEW! Indoor Pole Vault winter training is happening in February and March at Tradex. Senior Pole Vault athletes meet Tuesdays 4:15 – 6:15 PM and Thursdays 6:30 – 8:30 PM. NEW: Intro to Pole Vault Group for atheletes in Grades 6 to 9 meets Thursdays 4:15 – 6:15 PM and Saturdays 9:00 – 11:00 AMJunior Development (JD) Track & Field Training is planned for the regular 2021 Track & Field Season starting March 30th going until July 22nd.

The word from Dr. Bonnie will impact how we approach JDs.  Hopefully we’ll still be able to accommodate 2 or 3 separate JD training groups at the track at the same time while adhering to group size limitations.  We’ll need to be adaptable in this regard.

Message from Head Coach Trevor Wight

Dear Royals Family, 

On behalf of the Valley Royals’ coaching staff and board of directors, a very happy new year to you all.   Looking back, I am very proud of how everyone in our club weathered the storm that was 2020.    It was truly a team effort.  Decades from now, our current athletes will be able to look back and proudly say “I trained through a pandemic”.   Although there remains much uncertainty as we begin 2021, we want to assure you that we will continue to offer the best possible programming for all ages and abilities, even if it is not yet business as usual.    As safety for all remains our number one priority, we will continue to follow all current and future provincial health orders.   With you, we look forward to brighter days ahead.   

Yours in Sport, 

Trevor Wight, Head Coach
