The Mississauga Olympians Track and Field Athletic Association is a non-profit community based association providing training and competition for children and youth ages 4-19 of all abilities. The club provides a safe coaching and training environment to maximize each athlete’s performance in events such as sprints, jumps, throws, and distance running. The team trains three days a week and compete in local, provincial and international competitions.
Our mission is to provide a program to enhance fitness levels and promote healthy lifestyles. We want our athletes to have fun and to reach their full potential as a track and field athlete and an individual. We do this by introducing our athletes to the many different events involved with track and field, and let them choose what event or events they would like to take part in. Our program is aimed to enhance our athlete’s self-esteem, improve skill and technique, build confidence and leadership, learn the value of teamwork, make lasting friendships, and have fun and enjoy the sport of track and field.
Our team consists of a group of dedicated volunteers and coaching staff that have been trained in the sport of athletics and child development. Our approach to coaching is one of: Respect of Participants; Responsible Coaching; Integrity and Honouring Our Sport. We believe that every child can reach their true potential if given the proper tools.
