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.

CTAC Athletes (and Parents): 

This summer we are launching our first ever coffee FUNdraiser in partnership with All Star Coffee and need your help to raise funds for our upcoming 2020/21 season. As you can appreciate, COVID-19 has introduced additional expenses for all sports, and running is no different. As a non-profit organization, CTAC relies on fundraising to help keep our club fees manageable. This is where you come in to help raise funds for our club. 

Simply “Join the Team” and enter your information to start building your trading card today.
You can access our CTAC team page right here. https://allstarcoffee.com/team/central-toronto-athletic-club/#gf_10 

This season, we’re fundraising in a whole new way... And it’s never been easier! When you “Join the Team”, you’ll get everything you need to know about this season’s FUNdraiser. 

This will be the easiest, most fun you’ve ever had raising money for CTAC - and almost all parents love coffee. We would like to challenge every athlete to sell 10 bags of coffee to your extended family (grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc.), your family friends and neighbours. But don’t stop there because every bag sold contributes $7 to the club

This campaign will only run from July 22 to August 5, 2020 so please don’t wait to get started! Please let us know if you have any questions.
Good luck and thank you all for your support of our club! 

Dave Christiani, CTAC Head Coach
and Paul Jamael, Vice President & Campaign Coordinator
