Athletics Alberta is the provincial governing body for track and field, cross country and road running. As a branch member of Athletics Canada, Athletics Alberta is made up of individual members, member clubs and affiliated organizations. The purpose of the Association is to promote, encourage and develop the widest participation and the highest proficiency in the sport of Athletics.
Athletics is a dynamic sport and not just for those who are completely dedicated, but for all those involved in all activities. Through our various programs and activities, Athletics Alberta tries to bring the joy and benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle to Albertans; simply put, we live active. From U10’s to our oldest athlete who is 92 years young, we train juniors all the way to Olympians – and we have many Olympians in our Association.
The skills learned in Athletics are foundational and developmental and used in all sports from hockey and football to gymnastics and swimming. Strength, force, acceleration, dynamism – Athletics teaches you how to move in your body in ways that help you in any sport.
