Prince George, B.C. - The Prince George Track and Field Club has a new Head Coach for the 2014 season. Like his surname, 45 year old Bill Masich is well known in both local and provincial athletics.

“Track and field is in my blood,” says Bill, son of track club founder Tom Masich. “With my children now becoming more active in the club, playing a larger role just makes sense. The club  has a very strong volunteer coaching staff and I look forward to working with them to grow the club`s track rascals program while helping our competitive athletes reach their goals.”

 

“I enjoy working with all levels of athletes,” says Masich. “Many times the greatest successes come from those athletes who do not achieve provincial or national accolades, but grow into strong and confident individuals who have developed a lifelong dedication for sport and fitness.”

 

“Bill brings with him a wealth of experience that will help us develop our program and give our athletes the advanced training that will allow them to excel,” says Brian Martinson, Club President.  “Bill, along with our sprint and hurdle coach Cathy Johnson, will be of immense value in building on that tradition.”  Johnson is back for her third season to share her experience from her extensive track career which included competing for Ohio State in U-S College Track and Field and on behalf of Canada at the Pan-Am Games.

The club is currently running its indoor conditioning program at UNBC’s Northern Sports Centre and will begin its outdoor season in early April.  A number of club athletes will be at an indoor meet in Kamloops this weekend.  Main registration for the outdoor season will take place March 1 & 2 at the Active Living Market at Pine Centre Mall.

Aside from helping athletes here's hoping he doesn't have to spend 90% of his time trying to get the quality of the track up to snuff. Sure hope he knows what he is in for.
