Deadline for expression of interest is fast approaching. Please pass this along to your athletes and anyone else you feel may be interested. It is that time of year again! We are collecting interest in the 2017 Florida Warm Weather Camp. This is a valuable opportunity for athletes to experience a training camp environment and help in their preparation for the 2017 outdoor season. This is the 4th year Athletics NS will be hosting this camp. Expression of interest is required by November 1st. For more information, please see below.
- Atlantic Cross Country
The Atlantic Cross Country Championships will be held in conjunction with the AUS Championships on October 29th at STFX. New Brunswick will be sending a competitive team with 30+ athletes. This is a mixed provincial, club and individual event. NS athletes not competing as part of a eligible team (4+ members) will compete as NS, to compete against NB for the Atlantic Team Title. Please make sure your athletes are away that this event exists. It has not been well attended to previous years and hoping to get some more participation from NS
