Development Group

Nurturing the Next Generation of Distance Runner

Our competitive training programs are designed with significant input from the Athletics Canada Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) model. All of the methods used to train our young athletes are age appropriate; their safety and long-term participation in sport is one of our main goals. Our program aims to provide these young athletes with a sense of achievement leading to a positive relationship with sport and physical activity.


High School & Post Collegiate Group

Training for high performance.

As an athlete progresses through our programs, their training frequency and loads are increased, and emphasis broadens to include a more comprehensive training structure. At this stage they are provided with a more unique, individualized, innovative program that is designed and implemented by a Level 4 coach with international coaching experience.
