WHO WE ARE
The Speed Squad is one of Vancouver’s newest track and field clubs. In 2018 it was founded by a group of passionate athletes dedicated to assisting individuals of all ages who are interested in improving their physical fitness, mental stamina, knowledge of the sport of track and field, or running through organized training, community involvement, and competition.
We are a registered non-profit society and is a member of BC Athletics Association.
As a team, we seek to foster and grow the sport of track and field in Vancouver – to achieve this, we develop a safe and comfortable training environment for any athlete to develop their athleticism and speed. We believe that in order to be a better athlete, it is important to be the best person you can be first.
Short term, we strive to further develop the growth of our club by recruiting more members, coaches, and supporters. We also wish to have a track or facility to train at regularly and develop concrete operation plans for delivering the best programs we can for our athletes.
Long term, we hope that we can develop our members into coaches – giving students more opportunities at jobs and learning experiences. In addition, we wish to host events and training at a permanent facility or track.
