Athletes & Parents - Entries to competitions information - Ocean Athletics pays for 3 events and all relays when the entry fee is under $10, 2 events + relays when the entry fee is $10 and more. (some competitions have become outrageously expensive so only 1 or 2 entries may be covered - these are mostly meets for midget and older athletes. Check the meet information given for each competition). To enter a competition, go to the right hand side bar TRACK MEET ENTRIES. Look for the competition you are wanting to enter and open up the entry link. Fill in the form and use the submit button. Please submit a performance (a time for track events or a distance for throws,jumps) if you have them as these 'seeds' are important for setting up heats. You will also find a link to the competition information and event schedule. Entries are due to the club before the actual meet entry deadline as it takes time to put together the entries to submit to the meet.
Thank you Evan Dunfee for a great Race Walk clinic!!

Founded in March of 2006, Ocean Athletics is a track and field club offering training and coaching for athletes ages 9+. We have 280 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
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.
