This Saturday, the Oromocto plays host to the 19th annual Gagetown invitation, which once again begins our indoor season. It is being hosted as per usual on the CFB Gagetown indoor track. This is one of the competitions that has the longest run of consecutive years offered and always seems to pull together some wonderful performances.

The meet will feature a 60m, 200m, 300m, 600m, 1000m, 1500m as well as in the field shot put and weight throw and a Quadrathlon for the younger among us. The first of which is scheduled to get under way at 10:00, and should be over by 2:30. Over the previous 18 years of this competition there have been countless provincial records as well as personal bests, and hopefully this year can add to those totals.

Nov 7 2018 - The Atlantic Athletics Summit is Almost Here!

Atlantic Athletics Summit
CEPS, Université de Moncton, Moncton NB
November 16-18, 2018

Athletics New Brunswickis pleased to host another in our series of Summits, and once again, we have a great line-up of presenters and clinicians for this one.  This event will feature athlete training sessions, coaching education opportunities, and other workshops.  The Summit will include training sessions in all event areas, as well as seminars on related training and athlete development topics.  We will also be hosting NCCP Club Coach courses in Jumps and Para-athletics.  And we will have world renowned coach Boo Schexnayder as our keynote presenter.

Coach Schexnayder is an internationally renowned coach with expertise in all areas of the speed & power events.  He has coached 11 Olympians and numerous NCAA champions, and was a part of 12 NCAA Championship teams at LSU.  Among other things, he is presently the strength coach for the LSU track & field program.  He holds the designation of Master Coach from USATF.  He is also a well-respected coach educator and is in constant demand as a speaker at coaching conferences around the world.  We are extremely fortunate to have him bring his knowledge and skills to this year’s Summit.

Joel Skinner is returning again to the Summit, having joined us at the Atlantic Jumps Summit back in 2013.  Joel is possibly best known as the formative coach of Olympic HJ Champion Derek Drouin, but he has coached many other top-level Canadian athletes in several event areas.  He brings lots of experience in the jumps, throws and combined events. He was recently the head coach for Team Canada at the IAAF U20 Championships in Finland.  It is great to have him back with us!

David Foley is returning again this year to share his vaulting knowledge.  He began vaulting in 1998, and was a member of 9 national teams between 2000 and 2017.  He is a 2-time Canadian champion, and has 6 other national medals.  He is also the 3-time CIS champion in PV.  He still holds the Canadian youth record.  He was coached by François Thenault up until 2012, and he has himself now started coaching.  He holds a doctorate in mechanical engineering.  Those who attended last year’s sessions on PV will no doubt be glad to work with him again, and his sessions will be highly recommended for athletes and coaches alike looking to climb to new heights in their vault knowledge.

Other presenters will include:

·         Dr. Mike Johnson – professor of kinesiology at the Université de Moncton

·         Dr. Earl Church – throws coach at the Université de Moncton

·         Yvan Pelletier – sprint coach at University of New Brunswick

·         Rich Lehman – head coach of track & field and cross country at Dalhousie University

·         Steve LeBlanc – head coach of track & field at the Université de Moncton
