Welcome to the Greyhounds Website!
Led by Coaches Harold Morioka and Sam Walker, the Greyhounds compete against athletes within their age group at local, provincial, national and international Track and Field Meets.
Harold has extensive experience as one of Canada's elite Masters level sprinters. See
Sam, "The Runnin' Man", is in his second season as a Coach for the Greyhounds. "I enjoy training with the Masters athletes as their energy, drive and dedication to the sport is quite addicting. I still have a few more years left in me so I hope to continue rippin' up the track until I am no longer able to do so!" Recently, Sam set the BC Masters Indoor record in the M40 400M.
