The Brockville Legion Track and Field Club is a volunteer run, non-profit organization that is dedicated to the youth in our communities. Everyone is welcome to train, compete and have fun in a welcoming and supportive environment. Our fees are kept as low as possible as all of the coaches passionately believe that sport should be accessible to all and that every child is should have the chance to pursue their dream.
It costs between $15,000 and $20,000 per year to run the programming for the approximately 125 athletes that we provide services to each year. Many are subsidized even for the modest fees that we charge, as the lowest cost track and field club in Canada. We receive no funding from outside sources of any kind, federal, provincial or municipal to run our programs, but put in many hours of hard work and love of the sport as coaches.
From a small club at the competitive level, many of our athletes leave us with scholarships to university, with coaching credentials and leadership skills, having been on provincial and National teams and having seen much of this great country competing in a sport they work hard at, something that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. In the past 5 years the club has had 2 National Team members, 10 provincial team members, 75 National Medals, countless provincial medals, and a huge amount of team spirit and fun.
