Oct 30 2017 - Atlantic Athletics Summit

ANB to Host Atlantic Athletics Summit in Moncton

Athletics New Brunswick will be hosting the Atlantic Athletics Summit on Nov 18-19 in Moncton NB.  This event will feature athlete training sessions, coaching education opportunities, and other sessions including a club development workshop and an introduction to para-athletics workshop by Parasport NB.  Athletes and coaches will be able to select from training sessions in all event areas of athletics, as well as seminars on strength training, functional movement, and many other topics.  The Summit will also be hosting NCCP Club Coach courses in Jumps and Sprints/Hurdles.  And we will have presentations by world renowned coach Les Gramantik and world-class athlete Caroline Ehrhardt.

Featured presenter Les Gramantik is one of the most respected coaches in Canada, and he has coached some of the best athletes to ever represent our country, including Jessica Zelinka and Mike Smith as well as present stars like Damian Warner and Niki Oudenaarden.  He has expertise in all aspects of training, particularly in the speed/power events, and is a regular presenter at coaching conferences all over the world.  His coaching extends beyond track & field – he has worked with athletes from many different sports including hockey, football, synchronized swimming, canoe/kayak, bobsleigh, and many others.  Les will be leading training sessions on speed development and hurdling as well as giving the keynote presentation on “Coaching for Performance”.

Our featured athlete this year is Caroline Ehrhardt, the 6-time Canadian champion in triple jump, and the the top-ranked TJer in Canada for the past four years.  Caroline is a 4-time CIS champion, and holds the CIS/USport record in triple jump.  This summer she won gold in the TJ at the Jeux de la Francophonie in Abidjan CIV, and recorded the 4th longest jump ever for a Canadian woman at 13.59m.  Along with leading sessions in the technical aspects of long and triple jump, Caroline will present on her journey from being a young athlete from small-town Ontario to her pursuit to become the first-ever Canadian woman to qualify for the Olympic Games in triple jump.

Other presenters will include David Foley, 9-time national team member, 2-time Canadian champion and 3-time CIS champion in the pole vault.  Now coaching in Sherbrooke QC, he will share his immense experience and expertise with our athletes and coaches.  We also have Dr Michel Johnson, a strength training expert and professor of kinesiology at the Université de Moncton, and Ueli Albert, head coach of Global Wheelchair Athletics.

“The Summit will provide athletes and coaches with an opportunity to gain some new perspectives and learn some new tricks that they will be able to employ during the present season and beyond,” according to ANB Director of High Performance, Steve LeBlanc.  “We have outstanding coaches here in Atlantic Canada, but it is always beneficial to bring in some people from outside our region as well to get different eyes on what we are doing and fresh voices giving feedback,” added LeBlanc.

The Atlantic Athletics Summit takes place at the CEPS Louis-J-Robichaud on the campus of the Université de Moncton on Nov 18-19, 2017.  For more information, visit the calendar section of the ANB website (http://www.anb.ca) or contact ANB diectly.  Those interested in registering can do so online at TrackieReg (http://trackiereg.com/AtlanticSummit).
