In his 35+ years with the club Ed Moore has been an athlete, a coach, an official and a club executive member.
Ed started coaching with Caltaf in 1979, in the Garth Huck and Dave Peyto years, and has worked with athletes running distances from 60m to 10K, hurdlers, jumpers and even the occasional thrower. He has NCCP certification at Level 2 in all four event areas. He has served on team staff assignments at the Alberta Summer Games and the National Legion Camp. He has helped organize countless Calgary track meets, including not just the biggest ones but the smallest ones too. At most meets recently, since computerization came to the sport, Ed has been the glue that holds the photo-timing and results systems together. He is an official too, a Level 3 Photo Finish Chief. Simply put, Ed is a fixture on the Calgary track scene.
“I truly believe that track and field is the greatest sport on earth. It’s full of challenges – nowhere else will you find the diversity and the depth that you find in Athletics. There is certainly something here for everyone. Working with the younger athletes in the club is extra special because I get a chance to help these kids (and their parents!) discover for themselves the power of sport. To me success is not measured by just who wins the race, it is also measured by who tries the hardest and who performs to the best of their ability. Track and field lends itself to the pursuit of personal goals better than any other sport. That’s why it’s so great; in our club everyone can be a winner!”
