Indoor Track Season
We have received a lot of inquiries about whether or not we will have an indoor track season this year. Historically the season starts in early November, but we still need clarification from Alberta Athletics and other regulatory bodies about the types of conditions that would need to be in place. Please keep an eye on your emails and this website for more information as it develops. We are hoping for some answers over the next few weeks.
Minimum age for participation is 10 years old (no exceptions). We cannot take younger athletes at this time, we apologize if it causes issues, but there is no wiggle room on this issue.
Costs for each program are as follows:
- Cross Country – $25 (Sep 3 – Oct 31)
- Indoor Season – $150 (Nov 5 – Mar 31)
- Outdoor Season – $150
Due to insurance reasons All athletes must register!
We require club members to join Athletics Alberta (AA) as they provide our liability insurance. On joining Athletics Alberta the athlete will receive a registration number which is required to join LTFC. You can apply for either for a year, or just for the season, both available here under the Membership tab: www.athleticsalberta.com
Membership must be renewed appropriately or we cannot allow athletes to participate. If athletes are found to not have valid registration numbers we must ask them to not join us in practices
Fees payable in person at practice or registration nights only through cash or check. We cannot accept credit card payments at this time. We ask all members to bring their Athletics Alberta receipt as proof of membership.
We run introduction programs for athletes 10-12 years of age using the RUN, JUMP, THROW, WHEEL program which is endorsed by Athletics Canada. This gives athletes an opportunity to be introduced to all the different Track and Field disciplines while being coached in the correct techniques.
For athletes ages 13-18 we run developmental programs for speed, power (Sprints, and Jumps) and for distance 800m and up.
