B.C. CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
BC Athletics is pleased to announce that together with the Vancouver International Marathon Society, prize money will be provided to Men's and Women's Open and Masters Age groups in the upcoming Provincial Cross Country Championships. In a partnership with the Vancouver International Marathon Society, BC Athletics is reinvesting a portion of the Day of Event Membership Fees from the 2003 Adidas Vancouver International Marathon into prizing for Long Distance Running and in this case the Cross Country Championships. "The investment is a good step forward and complements the prizing provided by BC Athletics for the Half Marathon Race in the 2003 Adidas Vancouver International Marathon", stated Brian McCalder, BC Athletics President/CEO. "It is a bold step for BC Athletics to be putting up prize money however the expected benefits and incentives from reinvestment are very much worth it," McCalder concluded. Championship details are at www.bcathletics.org/main/xcchamps.htm.

2004 CALENDAR OF EVENTS
NCCP LEVEL I
NCCP LEVEL II THROWS
Sunday, September 28:
Fees and Registration:
HAMMER THROW CLINIC - TORONTO
HAMMER CLINIC - WASHINGTON STATE
THIS CLINIC IS ONLY FOR COACHES BOTH PAID AND UNPAID. Jr. High, High School, and college athletes will not be permitted to attend the clinic. This is a change from the initial plans for this clinic, so please make a note of it. Hal wants this clinic to focus on coaches, not athletes. Parents of young hammer throwers are welcome to attend.
After 10-22-03 the fee for the clinic will jump to 45 dollars, so register early if you plan on coming. Please take the opportunity to communicate this clinic to anyone who you feel might be interested in attending. The money generated from this clinic will be used for a good cause, to increase the exposure and support for an event at the youth level that has, for the most part, gotten limited support in the USA.
More information, including a tentative time schedule, is available at www.hshammer.com.
PETRO CANADA SPONSORS SPORT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE IN
"Sport Leadership has become a 'must-attend' event for sport leaders across Canada who welcome the opportunity to learn from one another. We are pleased that Petro-Canada has come on board as title sponsor so that we can continue to offer sport leaders an opportunity to network and learn from some of the world's experts in coaching, sport science, sport administration, and coach education," said CAC President, John Bales.
One of the world's premier conferences for sport leaders, Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif 2003 will bring together coaches, athletes, sport administrators, and coach educators from around the world to share ideas and experiences and gain insights from renowned experts. Last year's conference in Montreal was an unparalleled success with nearly 600 delegates from across the country participating in workshops, pre-conference activities, and special events. This year's conference in Vancouver from October 30 to November 2 promises to offer even more networking and professional development opportunities.
This year, CAC has partnered with the International Council for Coach Education (ICCE) to offer delegates an opportunity to attend both Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif 2003 and the ICCE Global Coach Conference. More than 50 Canadian and international experts will be on hand to share their expertise on topics such as developing successful high performance sport systems, coaching and technology, sport organization leadership, current research in coach education, and managing risk in youth sport.
Hear the inspirational story of Vancouver/Whistler's successful Olympic Bid for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games from John Furlong, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation. Australia's Henny Oldenhove, Manager of Sport and Recreation Development, Sport and Recreation ACT (Australian Capital, Territory) and England's Linda Plowright, Chief Executive of the British Sports Trust will discuss programs and strategies used to encourage young people to be physically active, to build community capacity through leadership training, and to reach disadvantaged groups. And Mike Spracklen, head coach of Canada's national men's rowing team and Even Pellerud, head coach of Canada's women's soccer team, will talk about instilling in their athletes the ability to embrace responsibility as a key success factor in both performance and leadership.
Among the activities planned for the weekend is the Sport Leadership Awards Dinner on Saturday, November 1, where fellow coaches and sport administrators will be recognized for their contribution to sport and athlete development.
Take advantage of the many professional development and networking opportunities available to you. Go to www.coach.ca/e/conferences/sportleadership.htm for more information and to register for Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif 2003 and the ICCE Global Coach Conference.
