What Our Members Say

“Phoenix Athletics gave me opportunities in track and field that opened up the doors for my career; it was the foundation to garnering a scholarship and becoming a professional athlete. I met many great teammates and was coached by the best Ontario had to offer, and I owe a lot to the club for pointing me in the right direction. I had ample opportunities to travel to different places to get the best competition and exposure, which was critical for my development as a young, blossoming athlete. Phoenix will always be ingrained in me as a vital building block and as the catalyst to my future, and I will forever be a part of the club organization.”

“My experience at Phoenix has been nothing but positive and enjoyable. Phoenix is the club I started with back when I was 11 years old and has gotten me so far in my track career thus far. There isn’t a day where I wouldn’t want to go to training because it is an environment where I love to spend a lot of my time. I have built friendships and relationships with the runners and coaches that will last a lifetime and are unforgettable. I owe a lot to this club, as it has taught me skills, leadership, and overall, how to be the best person I can be. Without being a part of it, I wouldn’t be running for the Canadian Paralympic team. You wouldn’t get an experience anywhere else like you would at Phoenix.”

We joined Phoenix in 2006; our daughter Ally had an interest in sprinting, and joining a track club was an opportunity to explore this athletic field.

Bill Stephens has been Ally’s coach for the past 9 years. He has been a coach, a mentor, guided her through many Provincial and National competitions, and has been a helpful voice in major decisions in life and on the track. At Phoenix, Bill and the coaching team have created a group of individual athletes into a strong team, always respecting one another, encouraging each other, and working together to achieve their goals.

 

Ally continues her track career; she is in her third year, under a full scholarship, at Illinois State University. A scholarship she got with great coaching, advice from her teammates, and hard work. She is a three-time OFSAA medalist, a two-time Canadian Champion, both Junior and Youth.  The NCAA  is giving her a great education and a strong competitive platform. Phoenix will always be her track family, keeping her focused and achieving her athletic goals.”

We train together in a fun and welcoming environment where we are constantly improving and learning from each other to reach out highest potential. I love how exciting training can be with Phoenix!”

“My experience with Phoenix is like having a second family. The adventures I went on have been amazing. The people I have met, the places I have been would have never happened if it wasn’t for Phoenix and for the love of my sport.”

“I found out about Phoenix Athletics from my son`s Vice Principal. My son, Daniel had run for the TDESAA Track and Field and a few scouts from other clubs had expressed an interest in him joining their club, but his VP advised him to research a variety of clubs: those that showed interest and he also recommended researching Phoenix.  Daniel came to the determination that Phoenix would be a good fit for him because it was small, not too commercialized and the club was local. I called and spoke to coach Geoff Standen and he told me that Daniel was welcome to “workout” with them for a week to see if this club was a good fit for him.  Daniel participated in the weeks training with Coach Geoff, and from the first day he said “Mom, this is the club I want to be in”.

 

We have just completed our first year with Phoenix under Geoff’s coaching and I am so impressed with the level of training, dedication and commitment that he has showed to Daniel. Coach Geoff is very professional; he treats Daniel with respect and Daniel returns the mutual respect. Training with the Phoenix club is not only about three days a week of training, it is also about the mentoring given to the kids about eating habits, school work and life as a teenager. I am glad we chose Phoenix. Since joining the club Daniel ran in the TDSSAA East Region Meet and qualified for the Metro Track Finals.  I would recommend this athletic club to any parent whose child has showed interest in track and field.  If you want a club where you know your child will be treated with respect, given the quality and individualized training, then Phoenix is the Club to join!”
