Welcome to Ocean Athletics Track and Field Club

Ocean Athletics was formed in January of 2006 in response to the completion of a track and field facility in South Surrey.  Since 2006, Ocean Athletics has grown to become one of British Columbia’s largest full service track and field clubs, offering year round programs for athletes 7 years of age and older.

The club is divided into the Seahorse Program (ages 7 & 8), the Junior Development Program (ages 9-13), the Midget through Senior Program (ages 14-34), and the Masters Program (ages 35+).  Ocean’s exceptional team of coaches provide coaching and training in Sprints, Hurdles, Jumps (long  jump, triple jump, high jump and pole vault), Throws and Middle Distance running including Cross Country running.   Training sessions are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30-7:30pm, and Saturdays 10am – noon.  Additional training sessions are set up based on athlete and seasonal need. 

Yearly membership fees cover coaching, training and competition from January 1st to December 31st. Membership fees also include the mandatory BC Athletics membership and the biannual issue of a competition top .   Member intake occurs throughout the year.  Yearly membership fees are listed below.    There is no set time line for entry into our programs.  Memberships run January to December but are not prorated until September 1.  Track and Field memberships are based on birth year, not birth date.  A January 2008 child and a November 2008 child are both in the 9 year old category.

Memberships are now due if you are training with Ocean Athletics.  You must renew your membership so that we have sport insurance for you.   There are 3 ways to renew your membership.

a. Use Trackiereg.ca for online registration payment, and submit the Ocean Athletics membership forms (membership & emergency contact forms).  Only one $200 Volunteer Bond is required per family.  The bond is located in additional payments.    If you have rolled your 2016 bond into 2017, you do not need to choose the additional payment.  Please be aware that there is a processing fee for using the Trackiereg online registration.

b. Membership forms and cheque made out to Ocean Athletics Track and Field Club - payment can be made in two installments with the first payment due with membership and the 2nd installment with a post dated cheque for the following month.  Please put cheque(s) and forms in a sealed envelope with athlete's name on the front of the envelope, and give to one of the coaches.
