Glimpses of Greatness
Guelph Track and Field Club
Since its implementation in the spring of 1984 the Guelph Track and Field Club has consistently been at the forefront of competitive performances at the provincial and national level. Athletes from the club, on numerous occasions, have represented their country in international competition. The merger of the Guelph Track and Field Club and the Guelph Oaks Track and Field Club in 1999 ensured that the entire spectrum of athletic events is available to club members
The Guelph Track and Field Club formed in the summer of 1984 to help promote and develop amateur track and field in the City of Guelph. In addition the following principles were established as part of the clubs mission statement:
New for 2017
New Registration Procedures
The Guelph Track and Field Club has reviewed its present registration format and determined that a simpler and better balanced format was necessary. With the new registration fee format each athlete can tailor their program and costs specific to their needs. Specifics will be posted as we near the 2017 registration period.
New Program Opportunities
Learn to Train
In addition to our highly regarded and successful FUNdamentals program (An introduction to track and field for ages 5 to 13) and our competitive program, we have recently introduced in 'beta' mode our 'Learn to Train' fall training program in Sept 2016. This program offers the young athlete (grades 7 an 8) the opportunity to learn the essentials of training regardless of sport in a twice weekly training environment. It is designed to bridge the gap between 'house league' style participation to a more structured year round multi - weekly training environment.
Non Competitive/ High School
For athletes wishing to train with a focus towards their high school seasons Guelph Track will be adding as part of its regular competitive steam the opportunity to train within a structured environment for the high school competitive season. More details will be forthcoming.
Meet Management Services
Over the course of the last 20 years Guelph Track in addition to gaining national recognition for its many provincial and national titles also garnered simlar recognition for its meet mnagement capabilities. 3 National Track and Field Championships, over 20 provincial indoor, outdoor and cross country meets were organized and operated by Guelph Track's meet management team. Including high school track and field and cross country Guelph Track has been at the forefornt of meet management services for 20 plus years. With the introduction of state of the art finish line technology the club is now positioned to provide for meet organizers a complete range of services fitted to their specific needs.
