NEW HEAD COACH NAMED FOR 2014

12 02 2014

The Prince George Track and Field Club is pleased to announce that Bill Masich has agreed to be the club’s new Head Coach.  The 45 year old Masich is well known in both loBill_Masich_Head&Shoulders2cal and provincial athletics and will help build on the already proud history of the club as it continues to celebrate 40 years of excellence.

“Track and field is in my blood,” says Bill Masich, 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.”
