Cindy Crowther
Coach

Cindy comes to our Camp staff with extensive experience in high-school age middle distance oversight.  From 2000 – 2008 she coached with the Golden Ears Track and Field Club and was instrumental in the careers of Jamie Clark (3:52 1500m in grade 12) and Brianna Chipney (multi-time BCHS track and field medalist).

Cindy brings incredible perspective reference pedagogy and appropriate development in formative and adolescent endurance running.  Some of her qualification in this area comes from her day-time profession in special needs for elementary school children, while a significant piece of her philosophy has evolved from her own experiences as an athlete.  Cindy still holds the BC record for 13 year olds in the 3000 meters (10:15.2), and she qualified for the U20 World Cross Country team as a 14 year old. Further, she twice won the U20 category of the Vancouver Sun Run – when she was in 6th and 7th grade respectively.  Foremost in her applied principles is that working hard and having fun don’t have to be mutually exclusive.  Cindy wants the athletes she works with to perform at the highest level they can, within the context of being in the sport for life.  She believes that running is an activity that is lifelong and should be perceived as more than just a teenage pursuit.
