New to 2017/2018, our Masters Track and Field program involves hands on coaching expertise in events ranging from the 100m-400m distances, and hurdles. Additionally, we offer a throwing specific program including shot put, javelin, discus, and hammer throw.
Overview: Athletes 35+ are encouraged to hold open communication regarding their individual training and competition goals with our coaching staff in order to maximize athletic performance and training values. The aim of this program is to facilitate a "fit for life" motive through the sport of track and field, for both competitive (competing) and non competitive athletes.
Competitions: Opportunities to compete will be offered at the local, provincial, national and even international level. In 2016, the Vancouver Thunderbirds Track and Field Club played host to the America's Master Games at UBC Track; a smashing success for all involved.
Events offered: Please note, this program is power speed + throws specific. If you are interested in other events such as Jumps or endurance, athletes will be reviewed and accepted on a case by case basis, dependent on coaching availability, facility use, and group dynamics.
