Athletics Canada

As coaches we need to be adaptable, Athletics Canada’s newsletter reads.

Due to the pandemic and social distancing protocols Zoom, MSN Teams and Skype meetings have taken over business and communication as people work, volunteer and coach from remote locations.

“This past year has been nothing but uncertain and has challenged us all to adapt to uncertainty. How do you help lead athletes through these unprecedented and challenging times? How do these experiences prepare you and your athletes for the many curveballs training, racing, and just life throw out to us? This session will discuss the challenges coaches are facing and insights on what you can do improve resilience.”

Athletics Canada and track surfacing leaders Beynon and Playteck form new partnership

Athletics Canada is pleased to announce a new partnership agreement with Beynon Sports and Playteck, becoming the Official Supplier of Track Systems for Athletics Canada. As part of the partnership and as a result of Playteck’s preferred relationship with UCS, members of Athletics Canada will also be able to purchase UCS equipment through Athletics Canada’s website.

In addition to their new status as an official partner, Playteck (a New Brunswick-based company), will provide resources to help interested parties build tracks and facilities in Canada.  Playteck will also sponsor Athletics Canada’s annual Coach of the Year Award and have a hospitality presence at the annual Canadian Track & Field Championships.

“Playteck is recognized as a national and international leader in track surfacing,” said Athletics Canada Chief Executive Officer David Bedford. “They have been building world-class surfaces across Canada and around the world, and we are excited to partner with an organization that is putting so much into the sport of athletics, from playground to podium.”
