About Us


Welcome to the Riversdale Athletics Club. We have been training track and field athletes for over 50 years. During that time we have helped thousands of young (and not so young) athletes run faster, jump higher, and throw farther .

Although we are a track and field club, what we teach our athletes goes far beyond the stadium. To us, learning to run faster is only the beginning. Sport teaches our athletes about determination and confidence, about how to win graciously and how to learn from defeat. It lets them hit their limit and then overcome it. It teaches them generosity when they share their team mate's wins and compassion when they share their losses.

On the track we have some of the most experienced and successful coaches in the province. Whether the goal is simply to get fit or to compete at a very high level, we have a program that can help. We have athletes from 8 to 80 and from beginners to National Champions and Olympians.

At Riversdale we pride ourselves on being a welcoming and accommodating community that places the needs of our athletes first. Our coaches put tremendous effort into ensuring that each and every athlete has the best chance to succeed. At the Board level, our first question when making decisions is always "how will this affect our athletes". As a Riversdale athlete, you can be sure that you will be treated with respect and compassion, that you will be well coached, that you will work hard, and that you will succeed.

We invite you to join us.

"Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen."
