Seasons Greetings to our Membership

We have begun our break for the Christmas season. Training will re-start on January 3rd for the JD and older groups. This is a reminder to all athletes who did not pay their 2017 BC Athletics fees with their Indoor Season registration, that this fee will have to be paid by your first practice in January in order to continue with your training. An email will be coming to those families who still need to pay this fee before January 1st. Our plan is to work out an online payment for just this fee. Please watch for that email which should be arriving sometime next week.

Our Track Rascal group will start a Winter session beginning Wednesday, January 11th and ending March 1st. This group is only available to those athletes who will be 6 - 8 years old as of Dec. 31, 2017. Registration for this session is available through our online registration system right now. The link can be found on the Club Registration page of our website. If you registered for the Fall session, please check the BC Athletics website to determine if your BC Athletics fees for 2017 have already been paid, or if they have to be renewed when registering for the program.

Upcoming Track Meets

We are currently working on the organization and setup of two meets that will take place over the remainder of our Indoor Season.

On February 18, we will be putting on a new meet for us. This one, Gary Reed Indoor Track Meet, is a one-day meet that has a number of the usual events. We will have some sprint events (60m, 200m, 300m and 400m) as well as some middle distance events (600m, 800m, 1000m, 1200m, 1500m and possibly 3000m if there is interest). Field events will be Long Jump, High Jump, Shot Put, and Pole Vault. This will be a sanctioned meet and participants are required to be competitive members of BC Athletics (elementary and secondary athletes with Training memberships may pay an additional BC Athletics "Day of Event" fee).

As well, we are working on our usual Indoor meet, but have it planned for a different weekend than we have had it in the past. This is the Van Ryswyk Indoor Invitational / BC Masters Indoor Championship and will be a full indoor meet taking place on the weekend of March 31 - April 2).

More information will be coming about both these meets, sometime in January. We are expecting that all of our JD to Masters athletes will compete in both of these meets.

Planning for a special trip to Edmonton

Coaches Shane and Ian are working out the details to take some of their athletes to Edmonton for the Golden Bear Open track meet on Jan. 20-22, 2017. This meet is for athletes in grade 8 and older, and contact has already been made with athletes about the possibility of attending. Please stay in contact with your coach, and ensure that you are reading any emails they may send with information.

The Club is working on chartering a bus to transport athletes to and from Edmonton. Accommodation is being looked into. As things progress, your coaches will let you know the costs that will apply to those attending the meet.

Club Uniforms and Clothing

Coach Shane has received information from Big Kahuna regarding prices for a few different items. The items and prices are as follows:
  • Gildan Performance tees - $21.46
  • Adidas tiro 17 jacket – $67.05

On behalf of the Executive and Coaches of Kamloops Track and Field Club, we would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday, and a prosperous New Year. Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you. We'll see you in January.
This is a Jingle Bells video that was sent to me by a colleague. I think that you may enjoy. I found it to be a lot of fun and quite amazing.
