Tara Dressler Headshot

Tara Dressler joined CALTAF in 1997, trained with Jason Lindsay and Christine Laverty until retiring from racing in 2011. Tara is a two time National medalist in the 3k Steeple Chase. She attended a Div 1 university in North Carolina, on a full ride scholarship. She trains and coaches knowing that the truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to someone else, the only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.

Tara is an assistant coach within the Combined Events group. Tara organizes and coaches the CALTAF Track Attack summer camp. She has coached on various Alberta teams, including 2016 and 2015 Alberta Summer Games, 2015 Western Canada Summer Games, 2013 and 2012 Legions, 2013 Midget Youth championship, and 2011 Western Summer Games.
