Spring Athletics Program
Spring Athletics Program
The Athletics program of SUSC is an introductory track and running program for athletes born 2009 - 2015 designed to complement the kinetic style and overall skill-set of athletes of all sports. The program is run in partnership with EMSP, our multi sports service provider.
The head instructor of the program is Nick Colyn, a stand-out Track & Field athlete at Trinity Western University and experienced running coach in the public track and field circuit. Read more about Nick’s accomplishments and experience here: http://www.gospartans.ca/sports/mxc/2016-17/bios/Nick_Colyn?view=news.
All training will be age and level appropriate and will consist of the following:
Acceleration / Deceleration
Power & weight transfer in sprinting
Correcting running form & style (proper biomechanics)
Note - this is not a conditioning program. There will be a higher focus on quality (style) than quantity (fatigue of athletes).
While we are here to help athletes improve, the coaching staff understands that children have many activities. There is, however, a strong correlation between attendance and athletic improvement. Participants will get more benefit from the program the more they can attend. This is an individual sport (and investment) so staff will leave the decision of commitment levels to registrants (families). The sessions will run rain or shine.
Strategic Partner - Thunderbirds Track & Field Club
Surrey United SC, through our multisport service provider, EMSP, has established a cooperative & strategic partnership with Thunderbirds Track Club, who train out of North Surrey Track. The track club has been influential in securing our location at North Surrey High School and also has kindly contributed to our Athletics program’s curriculum.
