Important information on July Competitions for JD Athletes and Parents

Welcome to July and Happy Canada Day!

Our two big meets, the BC JD Pentathlon and BC Championships are just around the corner, so we will be working to do our final preparation for those meets. We do not have a meet this weekend, but some of you may be interested in a tune-up. This is available through the Ocean Summer Series that run on Tuesday evenings in White Rock, with the next meet being July 9th.

While we are focussing on getting ready for the final two meets, all athletes are welcome and encouraged to come out to practice.  It’s a great time to train and pick up and develop your skills.
