Ocean's High School Athletes continue to impress!!

Congratuations to our athletes for an outstanding conclusion to their 2018 High School Season.  From the earliest mini meets in April, through regional eliminations, Fraser Valleys and the BC HS Champs this past weekend, our High School athletes have picked up medals, set new PB's and demonstrated that all of that hard work in the wind, rain, cold and snow this past winter was both beneficial and worthwhile!     You have made the Ocean Athletics family very proud.

** Coaches, parents - please send photographs.

Parents & practice dropoff:  Please do not stop to let your children out of the car at the entrance to the park.  This is a no stopping area.  Stopping backs up incoming vehicles into the traffic circle.  Now that spring has arrived, it is likely we will see bylaw officers handing out tickets to offenders.


Ocean Uniforms - competition tops may be exchanged after a minimum of 2 years if they no longer fit.  You must bring the used uniform to obtain an exchange.  If the uniform is damaged you may be required to purchase a new one.   If you wish to trade your uniform with a visiting athlete, you will need to purchase a new one for your use.   The Ocean Athletics is a high quality Garneau item designed uniquely for OA that will look brand new for many years if properly laundered (suggest washing and then hanging to dry).  Uniforms for new members are distributed on Saturdays when our Clothing Coordinator Cathy Carr is available.
