As coaches, we believe in training to compete. We want to see each athlete improve and gain confidence in their events, and what better way than to compete against other athletes throughout the province!
During the indoor season, all of our meets take place in Edmonton, AB (University Pavilion/"The Butterdome"). Athletes have the option of competing at other meets as well throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba through coaches approval.
During the outdoor season, our meets vary in location across Alberta. Athletes have the option of competing at other meets as well throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba through coaches approval, again. For athletes who qualify for provincial or national teams, they are able to compete across Canada and throughout the world!
For each meet there will be a tentative schedule that will be finalized days leading up to the meet. Check back often to the meet website as your event time may have changed. There will also be a technical package with each meet. These packages denotes meet rules, entry standards, a map of the track, concession options, and other important information.
During the indoor season, we train at the Centennial Civic Sports Centre on Tuesday's (5:00pm - 6:30pm), and the Servus Sports Centre on Thursday's (5:00 - 6:30pm) and Sunday's (4:30 - 6:00pm). Please bring appropriate training wear and a water bottle to each practice. Tuesday's are for training general conditioning, plyometrics, and endurance. Thursday and Sunday's are technical training days where athletes are allowed to work on event-specific conditioning. Check out the locker room bulletin boards for the location of practice (Mike's Fieldhouse or Remax Fieldhouse).
During the outdoor season, we train at Lloydminster Comprehensive High School (Armstrong Field). The same practice days and times apply from the indoor season. Most days are technical training days, however if weather is unsatisfactory, practices might be tailored to general conditioning and low-intensity workouts.
