Overview: 

The Pictou County Athletics Track and Field Club is a proud member club of Athletics Nova Scotia. We have developed a comprehensive approach towards our sport that includes programs for all – no matter the age, no matter the aspiration. The club is a not-for-profit organization which is governed by the P.C.R.A.S. Board of Directors and relies on a volunteer coaching staff. Our programs include:

• The traditional activities of providing coaching and competitive opportunities in track and field to athletes aged 13 and above.
• Providing highly structured athletic developmental programs for the 5 – 12 year old age group (Run, Jump, Throw, Wheel & Trailblazers)
• Hosting multiple meets per year, ranging from elementary and high school meets to our annual Athletics Nova Scotia sanctioned Pictou       
  County Athletics Open Track and Field Meet each summer.
• Providing strength, fitness and speed programs for athletes in other sports.
 
We strive to encourage participation in track and field at all levels in Pictou County and surrounding areas by organizing competitive opportunities for everyone from the recreational athlete to elite athlete. Pictou County Athletics’ members have included those who sought to improve their fitness and speed for other sports to athletes who have succeeded at every level of track and field including elementary school, high school, university, and national program.
 
In the winter season, we train at various indoor locations in Pictou County including North Nova Education Centre, Goodlife Fitness Centre and the Pictou County Wellness Centre. In the spring and summer seasons, we make our home at one of the province’s top Track and Field facilities, the Pioneer Coal Athletic Field, located in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. 
 
The success of all our programs is primarily due to our outstanding all-volunteer coaching staff which is one of the largest of any coaching staff in Nova Scotia. We are fortunate to have very experienced coaches, some of whom are former and current CIS University Track and Field athletes, as well as local distance running legends.
