Volunteer opportunity!   Ocean has been asked to provide a small concession on Tuesday, April 29 for the Surrey High School Championships preliminaries that are held at our track.   A team of 3 or 4 should work well.  Time 3:30 - 7 / 7:30pm.   Involves designing a menu, purchasing food (all costs reimbursed) & setting up and cleaningup.    This would count as 1 or your 2 volunteer requirements. Please contact Mo if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity. 

Thank you to all of our parent volunteers for getting the equipment moved to the new shed and managing uniform distribution.  Both very big jobs and your help is so much appreciated.  It was a super busy day Saturday with the Evaluation of our coaches by BC Athletics, uniforms, moving of equipment and the regular practice.  Thank you to everyone for making it all work!

Parents - a reminder that you can pick up both 2013 and 2014 membership receipts at the track.  They are in the binders labelled  2013 (2014) Membership receipts.  It is a white copy for you to take. 

JD Parents: Entries for the April 25,26th Vancouver Elementary Relays are due to Mo by the end of practice on Thursday, April 17 at the latest.  The sooner the better.  You can look at the meet schedule and information at the track or google Vancouver Elementary Relays 2014 for full information.  A reminder that the club pays for 4 individual events + relays.  Additional events are at participant cost.  All entries submitted together.

Founded in March of 2006, Ocean Athletics is a track and field club offering training and coaching for athletes ages 9+. We have 200 members with 12 qualified coaches in the areas of sprints, throws, distance and jumps.

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) 
  • Rotary Club of White Rock

If you would like to get to know our club, you are welcome to join us for one trial workout (schedule). Introduce yourself to one of the coaches dressed in Ocean Athletics wear.
