From the Coach

We invite you to consider coming to WLU to run with us. Please know that your entire school experience is very important to us. 2018 was WLU's third year in a row ranking the highest in all of Canada for student satisfaction in the annual MacLean’s magazine rankings. We have strong academic programs and a very supportive staff that you can go to for help when you need some TLC.

Laurier also provides top-notch sports injury prevention and therapy to all our athletes. Students are able to make appointments online and most days are able to receive therapy within 24 hours. In addition, we have a superb strength and conditioning coach who works with our team. Weekly strength workouts are provided and woven into the overall fitness training. All athletes also have access to a great athletic administrative support team that many of our athletes have accessed and found that the attentive care and support given has been invaluable.

When you come and run for us you will be able to race in all competitions (four in cross country and five to six for indoor track) prior to the OUA and U SPORTS championships. We are quickly developing a team atmosphere of excellence and we will help you be the very best athlete you can be. We are putting an emphasis on our relay programs and look forward to having very competitive 4 x 400m and 4 x 800m relay teams. In cross country, we have a very supportive administration that has sent full male and female teams to the U SPORTS championships, even though we are still developing the program. I look forward to discussing our program in more detail.
