A huge thank you to all of our BC Athletics Officials who volunteered their expertise and time to all of our 2015 Summer Series events, including this past weekend's Athletics Canada/Hershey Canada Youth Midget Series event. Our meets would be neither possible nor successful without the large number of hours you willingly give to Ocean Athletics! Thank you, thank you.
And thank you to all of the Ocean Athletics parents and athletes for your volunteer help this past season. Ocean cannot host events without your help! Hopefully you learned some new skills and more importantly got to know some more of your club members.
