Training Update   All training sessions for Monday Oct 22 will end at 7pm to enable to the 2018 AGM to begin promptly at 7:05Coach Cathy will be available at the end of AGM for clothing sales.

 

AGM Update!!  The Monday October 22 AGM will now be held at the track instead of Semiahmoo Secondary.  The meeting will start at 7:05 promptly.  Athletes, please ensure you have sufficient clothing so that you do not get cold post training.   Meeting will take no longer than 25-30 minutes.  The change has been initiated due to the low AGM registration numbers.  Meeting will cover the essential items of the AGM only.  A town hall meeting will take place before the Christmas break to discuss the future direction of Ocean Athletics.

Athletes please bring a small snack.  It will not be possible to order pizza as it is impossible to estimate how many folks will just choose to come without registering.

The presentation by Tyler Dumont for the Physiomoves High Performance Program will take place Tuesday Oct 30 at the Semiahmoo Secondary wt room at 5pm, just prior to the beginning of the strength training session.   Grade 7 and older athletes and their parents are invited to attend.  More information at  www.physiomoves.com

Want to see improvements to our Track and Field Facility?    Please take the time to complete the City of Surrey Athletic Field Facility Survey found here   Our track needs to be resurfaced!!  A safety railing needs to be installed along the 100m straightaway to keep spectators from interfering with Lanes 8 & 7 athletes.  The infield needs to be left open for the summer months.   Our new equipment shed needs to have a building permit issued.  Our concerns will only be addressed if we make some noise!!!  Fill in the survey (it is ok to fill in separate surveys for other sports) and lets see if we can put our facility in a priority position.   Have friends and other family members who use the track complete the survey as well.  Data is being assessed in 2 weeks!  Get your survey done today.

 

 New BC Women's 55-59 Hammer Record for Nancy Smith  !!   Not only are our cross country runners having a fantastic Fall season,  but Ocean's Masters athlete - Nancy Smith - set a new BC Hammer record in less than ideal conditions at the Ultra Throws event this past Sunday.   Nancy crushed the old record of 32.89m in not one, but three of her 6 attempts with the 34.86m throw being the best and the new BC Record.  Congratulations Nancy.

NEW THROWS TRAINING OPPORTUNITY - FRIDAYS 5-6PM AT THE TRACK - starting Friday Oct. 5.    This is a great opportunity to put in some throws training while both the infield and the track are clear.   All welcome.  Take this opportunity to both learn about and improve your throwing.  For the JD's  there will be 30min of practice and then a competition - each week will be a different event  Friday Oct 12th  - Discus - throws will be measured and ribbons given out.  Come and give it a try.
