Westpark Washroom with SharonSince the St. Catharines’ Council vote to stall the new Westpark toilets, Sharon Stewart hasn’t been sitting around.

Flush from the success of attracting some of the Summer’s bigger events outside the Pan Am / Parapan Games, Sharon has not wasted any time in seeking to change the minds of Councilors who voted against the motion.

The St, Catharines Standard has published the story and is inviting readers to vote on support for the washrooms.

Even if you’re in two minds about the topic, please read the article and support Sharon’s campaign if you can.

Thank you.

Go NOC Athletes Go!


 

canadian-junior-logoV5Starting today, the A.C. Junior National Championships are being held in Quebec.

We want our athletes to know how much we support their efforts, and those of our Coaches who work tirelessly to get them qualified and ready to belong to Canada’s best.

And to the athletes parents and guardians who quietly make sure that the right resources, encouragement, and emotion, are brought to bear in generating such success.

Please send lots of pics for the website, to motivate our athletes not at the Championships this year, and to motivate not-yet-member athletes to join the best track and field club in Niagara.

Enjoy.

[This weekend’s event schedule]

It’s that time again…and we’re all running, one way or the other


Cross-Country SantasFrom the Board Members of Niagara Olympic Club:

We want to wish all our Member Athletes, Shoetag Athletes, Volunteers, Parents, Guardians, Coaches, Running Clubs against whom we compete, Niagara Schools and Universities that use our facilities every year, our Sponsors, Journalists who follow us, alumni who stay in touch, our friends at the Niagara Sport Commission, and the City Of St. Catharines who are generous in support of our goals in so many ways, very Happy and Relaxing Holidays.

It’s been a banner year for our Club in many ways. If you have particular highlights on which you’d like us to dwell in these Posts, please let us know.

At the risk of sounding like a pitch from U.S. Public Television, next year we’ll be campaigning for direct sponsorship from local businesses, in exchange for high quality exposure within our considerable Niagara reach, and beyond, provincially. We have several capital improvements planned, that will take significant funding, and will result in safer, enhanced facilities for our Members, Spectators, and all who’ll be associated with our Club. In parallel, we’ll be on an aggressive recruitment drive to expand our Membership, opening new competitive, social and educational opportunities for our athletes.

Please take some time over the holidays to consider how you can help us achieve our goals, and let us know, or ask questions anytime.

Thank you.

NOC competed as a cohesive team in the Nationals


Excellent comments from Coach Bill MacDonald:

As you can see by the posts, NOC had a phenomenal weekend in Vancouver, especially Heather, but what can’t be overlooked is the phenomenal performance by the NOC TEAM. Six athletes went to Vancouver, six athletes showed up on the line ready to race and six athletes made NOC proud. For Kristen, Avery, Kayla and Cailen it was their first experience at Nationals.

Some may say it’s just another race, but it’s not. The best athletes from across the country are competing. This is the pinnacle of the season. For our Grade 9 athletes, Avery, Kayla and Cailin this meant going from racing 3K at OFSAA to racing 5K at Nationals, which is a big jump. They made us proud they way they raced with guts and determination.

Laura, Kristen and Heather were team leaders, truly mentors for the younger athletes. Laura and Kristen had fantastic races, which is very difficult in such a long season, a testament to their hard work and dedication.

Overall, Team NOC placed 7th!

Well done TEAM NOC, you made us all proud.
