About WLAC

The club was established in 1982 by co-founders David Bond and Mike Robinson whose vision was to develop all athletes to their full potential in fitness and skill.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s the club had a number of provincial and national athletes including Jill Purola, Nancy Hostetler, Jeremy Brown, Bryce Coad, Steve Kocsis, and most famously, Catherine Bond Mills. Catherine competed for Canada in a number of international events including the 1992 Barcelona and 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games.

As a non-profit organization, the club offers Per-Session Training, pay-as-you-play or Full Year Competitive Training. Our programs are geared to beginners in Day Camp to the competitive athletes. Athletes can fitness train or participate in specific event training in the various disciplines of sprints, distance, hurdles, jumps and throws.

Outdoor training takes place at College Avenue Secondary School from May to mid-October, and indoors at Cowan Park and Woodstock Colligate Institutes’ gym for the remainder of the year.

Some of our graduated athletes have continued their training at Canadian and American Universities.

Our Vision: To develop all athletes to their full potential in fitness and skill.
