TEAM MANAGER & ASSISTANT COACH
Courtney is a former Edmonton Olympic Club (EOC) athlete who has returned to the club to assist the athletes and the coaches. He returned because his daughter showed an interest in running, and he thought there is no better place than EOC.
The position of Team Manager is a new one for EOC. As Team Manager, Courtney works with the club, the board, the coaches, and the athletes to ensure everything operates smoothly. In addition, he assists with coaching and has completed the Sport Coach Course and is working to get his Sports Coach Certification.
He is excited to take on the challenges of this newly-formed role. As an athlete with EOC, he competed in the shorter sprints and then moved to the longer sprints. Unfortunately, an injury prevented him from running competitively. He believes in having fun, and what you put in, get out. He also believes that hard work in practice will be rewarded in competition.
