Cougars ready to pounce on another track and field season

Comox Valley club has a busy season ahead of them; registration is open now

The Comox Valley Cougars Track & Field Club is back in action this spring, training hard for a busy season.

Club members are looking forward to a full slate of Island competitions, plus B.C. open championships happening close to home in Nanaimo. Many club athletes will also figure prominently in the upcoming Island and Provincial high school championships, with many looking to land U.S. university scholarships – something the Cougars have an excellent track record of.

Track and field has always been one of the most affordable sports, but this hasn’t stopped the Cougars from initiating some new programs that make the sport even easier to love.

A new training-only membership provides a way for kids and adults to get into the sport without the full cost or commitment of a full competitive membership.

A training membership is also ideal for those who want to cross train for other sports, or simply would like to get fit through the various track and field disciplines.

A Spring Into Track introduction to track and field is being offered through the CRA again this year, as are spring break and summer camps.

Visit the club’s website for complete program and registration information: ComoxCougars.org
