*** The Seahorse program now goes 6-7pm on Mondays and Thursdays. The Seahorse registration for 2015 is now full. No further registrations will be taken. If you wish to be put on the waiting list for 2016, please contact Maureen at the Helpdesk (bottom of this page)
*** And yes, Rain or shine, practice is on. Remember to dress in layers and have something dry for the ride home!!
*** Reminder to Parents - please do not stop to either drop or pickup your athletes at the front end of the parking lot. Please drive right in to the parking lot. With the decreased light, it is getting more and more difficult to see in that area. Also, please come down to the track to pick up your children at the end of practice.

In the spring of 2012, five Rotary Clubs came together to help Ocean Athletics and the City of Surrey to build a storage shed that now houses our pole vault, high jump and throwing equipment. Thank you to:
- Rotary Club of White Rock Millennium
- Rotary Club of White Rock Peace Arch
- Rotary Club of White Rock Peninsula
- Rotary Club of Semiahmoo (White Rock)

In the spring of 2014, the new Rona shed was completed in the northwest corner of the track. Ocean Athletics shares 1/4 of that space. Thank you to Drew Kightley and Rona for their sponsorship of this project.
