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.
