Everyone is into the spring/summer programs now and are looking forward to some decent weather. We have an exceptional number of athletes doing
Track and Field this season, welcoming many younger ones. This is a challenge for the coaches to make sure everyone is getting optimal time to be taught the skills. If you are inclined, we are looking for help to coach these athletes. We want to make all the sport programs a fun, learning event.
PROBLEMS CREATED AND SOME PROBLEMS SOLVED
It has been a long haul getting together all the athletes and coaches who are attending the Summer Games. In 5 pin bowling, we have had some cancellations which have jeopardized teams, only so many can be replaced then the team is not able to go. With some shuffling up to this date we have found placements for athletes who were on the eliminated teams, and were able to pick up from other locals to fill teams. It is important to state at the Regional competitions if travelling to the Provincials and Nationals is a problem. Some of our athletes have been picked up by other locals for softball and 5 pin bowling.
UNIFORMS are a challenge. All the jackets we have (some old, some new) are being given out to our coaches and athletes. Team uniforms must be supplied to the local athletes PLUS the athletes we have picked up. My respect and congratulations go to Karen Milner who has been juggling for many months to make sure everyone is uniformed as needed. Thanks you to all athletes and coaches for providing your own black dress pants for the WALK ON UNIFORM.
THANK YOU to the athletes and coaches who have stepped up to help with the fundraisers at Safeway and Staples. The money made at these events goes towards coaching development, programs and competitions put on by SOBC and Canadian Special Olympics.
