The Deerfoot Athletic Club will be hosting a free six-week Training Camp for interested High School, Adult, and UCFV athletes starting July 22nd 2003. There will be three training sessions a week – track, road, and cross-country – preparing runners for the 2003 BC College Championships and the 1st Annual Downes Bowl Cross-Country Meet on October 18th 2003.
This year’s cross-country training camp will be conducted by the coaching staff of the Deerfoot Athletic and UCFV Cascades Running Clubs.
For further information please contact Head Coach Myron Neville at 604-850-6769 or at for times and locations.

Get a jump start on the upcoming Cross-country season. Plans are unfolding for the first ever NorWester/West Van Track Club's Joint Cross Country Training Camp at Whistler BC from August 25 - 28, 2003. This camp follows our very successful Spring Break Camp and promises to provide each high school athlete with tools to improve their performance in cross-country. We would like to see a good representation of North Shore High School athletes attend so the support of High School coaches is encouraged. Depending on the number of campers taking part, we may have a few rooms available for parents who would like to spend a few days at the site of 2010 and breathe in some of the excitement that will be brewing in Whistler. For complete information see the Norwesters T&F Club website at: 

This training camp is sanctioned by BC Athletics. All participants must be registered members of BC Athletics for 2003. Information on membership types is available at
