POWER/SPEED ALERT!

Coach Ziggy will be away from July 5-10 coaching at the Nationals in Edmonton as well as July 13-18 where he will serve as Coach for Team Canada U23 in El Salvador. 

Coach Ziggy has left workouts for all of his athletes. Please check the Calendar on the website as the Power / Speed group could be training when the JD group is at the track. The shed and equipment will be available then.

He will not be at the Jamboree in Nanaimo but Coach Ivon will be attending this meet due to Ziggy’s absence.

Dear Parents / Athletes of Abbotsford,

Local young athletes are urgently needed to participate in this Friday’s Canada Day parade.  There will be a float in the parade promoting the BC Summer Games (coming up later in July).  Athletes are needed to walk behind the float (waving BC and Canada flags, wearing jerseys or uniforms, generally just looking sporty).   Even though the games are technically for athletes aged 14-15, for purposes of the parade, age really doesn’t matter a whole lot – anywhere from 9 -18 will work.   Were looking for as many athletes to participate in this as possible.    It promises to be lots of fun.   

Here are the specifics:   

Athletes would need to meet at the BC Summer Games float, this Friday at 9:45 AM on Ware Street (all floats will be lined up somewhere on Ware Street south of South Fraser Way – look for the one with the BC Summer Games signs on it)   The parade officially starts at 10:00am and proceeds from Ware Street west on South Fraser Way.   

If interested, please respond ASAP directly to me at:   trevor_wight@hotmail.com .   I need to let the games organizers know specific numbers. 

Thanks very much and hope to see you Friday.

regards,

Trevor Wight,

Chair, Sport Abbotsford
