Athletics Ontario is pleased to announce that the Toronto Track Volunteers (TTV), a volunteer group that supports track and field (athletics) events and education in Toronto which is led by Melanie Chiu, will be providing extended and direct support to Athletics Ontario events and programming.
TTV began unofficially in 2009 with the purpose of training and supporting volunteers to facilitate the Canadian Senior Championships in 2009 and 2010.
In 2011, TTV was asked to reassemble for the Toronto International Track and Field Games. Since then, TTV has participated in multiple athletics events, including the Athletics Ontario Indoor Relay Championships, Hershey Canadian Indoor Championships, Asian Community Games, Ontario Masters Outdoor Track and Field Championships, Nike High School Grand Prix, and the TO2015 Pan American and Para-Pan American Games.
AO hopes to continue to provide meaningful experiences for everyone interested in contributing and supporting the athletics community. Moreover, Athletics Ontario believes that educating and mentoring volunteers who want to learn and expand their knowledge in track and field will help to create the next generation of accredited officials.
This February 13th and 14th AO will host the Provincial Youth & Senior Championships and Midget Dual Meet at the Toronto Track & Field Centre, on the York University campus. We are currently seeking volunteers.
