TRACK & FIELD

FASTEST KIDS IN VANCOUVER - SIX LOCAL AREA TEENS WIN SPOT IN NikeRunDown

On August 22, Vancouver's fastest kids participated in heated competitions of 35 metre head-to-head races for the chance to be crowned the "Fastest Kid in Canada." The fastest three boys and three girls earned an all-expenses paid trip to Toronto and a chance to compete in the national NikeRunDown finals on September 5.

The top three boys and top three girls in Vancouver are as follows:

1st Kevin Lim, Windsor Secondary, 4.86 seconds
2nd Eric Fraser, Burnaby Central, 4.87 seconds
3rd Matt Willcox, Dr. Charles Best, 4.97 seconds

1st Corri Fell, Point Grey, 5.30 seconds
2nd Liza Whitehead, Johnston Heights, 5.32 seconds
3rd Danaka Porter, Crofton House, 5.27 seconds (fastest female time during qualifying event)

Not only will the national male and female winner get the bragging rights of being the fastest high school athlete in the country, they will also be featured on a large billboard in their local area, receive a trophy, spend time with elite Nike Canada athletes and have a banner raising in their honour.

NikeRunDown involves 35 metre qualifying races in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, Halifax and Toronto for youth aged 13-18. The program includes a charitable component that aims to raise $100,000 to help kids overcome the financial barriers associated with organized sports.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Peter Ogilvie at peterogilvie@bcathletics.org.

SportMap

SportMap was designed to assist sport organizations in serving British Columbia athletes and coaches by following these basic principles of systematic, holistic and scientific athlete development. SportMap can serve as a blueprint for sport organizations, athletes, coaches, sport professionals and parents of athletes. In the process, SportMap can help create:

  • useful approaches to sport development
  • a larger public understanding of how the British Columbia system works
  • a common template of sport educational resources for athletes, coaches
    and parents.

NEW BC ATHLETICS DAY OF EVENT MEMBERSHIP FEE

BC Athletics Day of Event Membership Fee Sharing - New Schedule - effective April 1, 2004

The BC Athletics Board of Directors reviewed the Executive committee proposal and alternative proposals from both Maurice Wilson and Frank Stebner. The Board wishes to thank these members and others who may have contributed for their ideas and support on this matter.

The new Day of Event fee sharing schedule is as follows:

  1. The calculations are based on the number of Day of Event Members entered in your event. (Those who are not registered annual members [current] of BC Athletics or another Provincial/Territorial, State or National Athletics Association.)
  2. To support this BC Athletics provides to all sanctioned event organizers, a list of eligible members and an update to that list prior to the event. For those from another province, territory, state or national athletics association, they should verify membership with their valid association membership card. If they are not members of their provincial, territorial, state or national athletics association then they can become BC Athletics Day of Event members.
  3. The new Day of Event Membership Fee sharing schedule is:
  Number of Day of Event 
Members Entered
Fees Retained by Event Fees Remitted to 
BC Athletics
Step 1 The first 500 $1.00 per Day of Event Mbr. $2.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 2 The next 500 $1.25 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.75 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 3 The next 1000 $1.50 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.50 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 4 The next 2000 $1.75 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.25 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 5 All remaining $2.00 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
  1. Associated with the new fee schedule is also a scale of Value-In-Kind Benefits linked to each Step of the new schedule.

The value in-kind or soft benefits component of a new schedule of BC Athletics Day of Event membership fee sharing would apply and have benefit for both the Sanctioned Event and BC Athletics/Divisions.

The in-kind benefits to Club/Event Organizing Committee and BC Athletics (the Divisions of) from sanctioned events are to be linked to the Day of Event Membership fee retained by the sanctioned event and that returned to BC Athletics. The guiding principles are:

  1. that the more retained by the sanctioned event the more the event can provide to grow their participation and/or quality of their event; and
  2. that the more that is retained by the event, the greater the value in-kind benefits to the association/division within the event.

The following will developed and linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule.

For the sanctioned events the benefits, financial and in-kind benefits (in addition to the standard benefits already provided) include and in no particular order:

  • an incentive to help grow participation in the event through the establishment of a new sharing formula for the day of event membership revenue;
  • enabling prize money or enhanced prize money through the retaining of more day of event membership revenue, based on a new sharing formula;
  • sport promotional information - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • for member clubs, information on where to get location and contact information - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • for children and families - information on kids programs - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • provision for the display and distribution of event information brochures at the BC Athletics booth at event expos;
  • a review of the electronic version of the Calendar of Events which includes the consideration of the idea for a two tiered calendar:
    • the first calendar being only those events that are sanctioned by BC Athletics and other Prov/Terr or Nat'l Athletics Associations;
    • the second calendar - linked from the first calendar, would be the full calendar of all events, with the highlighting and bolding as is currently presented;
  • a calendar of events listing fee for non sanctioned events;
  • a partnership with the divisions of the association to provide assistance for regional level seminars and/or guest speakers in conjunction with a sanctioned event in that region.

These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more to the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result more of the Day of Event membership revenue is retained by the Club/Event Organizing Committee.

For BC Athletics/Divisions of the value-in-kind benefits to be linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule include and in no particular order:

  • association/division information - in participants event/race package;
  • information on clubs - where to get location and contact information - in participants event/race package;
  • Athletics (the sport) promotional material that is specific to various parts of the sport e.g. road running - in participants event/race package;
  • information on kids programs - in participants event/race package;
  • association division logo on event entry forms/information packages;
  • signage at sanctioned events;
  • booth space at event expo and/or the event;
  • recognition at some level as a sponsor or supporter of the sanctioned event;
  • designation of Day of Event revenue retained by the club to go to prize money in the event;
    association/division representative participation in event awards presentations - as appropriate.

These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more exposure to BC Athletics/Divisions in the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result less Day of Event membership revenue per person is returned to BC Athletics.

The materials referenced in the above value-in-kind benefits would be a responsibility of the association.
