SFTC is a non- profit club. The majority of all costs go directly to the athlete (coaches, facilities, uniforms, travel, camps, BC athletics membership, competition fees, etc). There is a small registration fee that will go to the club for operating costs only (flyers, registration process, shipping, field use, etc). SFTC will be directly responsible for fundraising, sponsors, banquets, etc. A $30 NSF fee will be added for all returned checks. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

Volunteering as an Official
There are many volunteer opportunities within the South Fraser Track and Field Club. From leadership and organizational support to coaching, helping at practices and meets, to attaining sponsorship, and more. We know life is busy and everyone has busy schedules, but even a few hours a month can make all the difference in the lives of our young and aspiring athletes.
Our Club supports the BC Athletics Officials program, and many of our members volunteer and work with them at events.
BC Athletics Officials are trained volunteers that work at Track and Field, Cross Country and Road events. These are the people who ensure the fairness/ measurements/fun and organization of the track meets we all attend. Many are parents, but some are athletes, active or retired. Young athletes can join the Under-18 officials program to enhance their understanding of the sport, and accumulate credits for school programs. We encourage our members to get involved. Visit the BCA Officials Web Page for the latest information on training and certification as an official: http://www.bcathletics.org/main/officials.htm.
Meet fees will be paid by the athlete / parent via an online registration system on our web site. Non-competitive events are included in the registration fee. If athletes want to have SFTC register them for track events, a $200 deposit must be provided with registration/ volunteer fees. Events will be covered until the money is used up, after which a new deposit is required.
You will not be entered into meets if meet fees, club fees, and registration fees are not paid.
Uniform fees are not included in club membership fees and are separate. All athletes must wear SFTC uniform at competitions. Any additional fan club wear for parents, family, friends, etc can be ordered on the SFTC website. 10% of this profit will be put into the club as fundraising.
Athletes must purchase their own shoes/spikes and any other personal items as needed.
