About

Athletics Niagara is the oldest operating Track and field club in the Niagara region, established in 1974


PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES

Philosophy

Our goal is to educate through sport using a safe and fun environment. The athletes are guided into events best suited to fit the needs of the individual and to promote maximum growth in the sport.

Objective

For the younger athlete, our emphasis is on fun, fitness, skill development and learning the basics of good competition.

As the athlete matures, the emphasis moves toward the specialization in one or more events. This progression approach takes into account the development of the athlete from childhood to adulthood. Improvement of the individual depends upon his/her commitment to training and following the coaching strategy. When an individual demonstrates this, at the very least they will learn regimen, self-discipline, and a sense of what it takes to be. . .

THE BEST THEY CAN BE!
