The BC Throws Project Provincial Development Camp aims to help develop athletes, aged 14+, in the Throws (Hammer, Javelin, Shot Put, & Discus) through a combination of practical and theory sessions for both athletes and their personal coaches. This Provincial Development camp will be hosted in Kamloops at the Tournament Capital Centre, held in combination with the Bondarchuk Cup Throws Meet. A great opportunity for athletes to develop their skills and compete!
With the latest changes to the rules from the Province, BC Athletics, and the City of Kamloops, we are planning some Mini-Meets over the next couple of months. These won’t be the usual full track and field meets but will feature various events so that most can hopefully be accommodated. Our schedule so far is as follows…
The first club meet sanctioned by BC athletics returned to competition on Saturday, Aug. 1 and 2, at Hillside Stadium. This meet was carefully set up to follow the rules of the Provincial Health Officer, BC Athletics, Via Sport, and the City of Kamloops. It was limited to 9 athletes and coach along with officials to manage the meet. Spectators were not allowed to view the meet from the throwing area.
Registration for our Youth Summer Camps is now open. These camps are for athletes who are 9 – 12 years old by Dec. 31, 2020. There are 2 camps – Aug. 2-7 and Aug. 11-14. They run from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm each day. Drop-off may occur from 7:45 am with a responsible person being there to receive your athletes and provide supervision.
