The Track Attack Philosphy

Meet Our Head Coach

Head Coach Tara Power

Hello!

I’m Tara, and I’m the head coach and founder of Track Attack summer camp.

I started racing when I was just in junior high, and joined Calgary Track and Field (CALTAF) back in 1997. As an athlete I trained with for 14 years until I retired from racing in 2011. During that time I attended an NCAA Division 1 university in North Carolina and became a two time Canadian National medalist in the 3k Steeple Chase. I currently coach for CALTAF within the Multi Events group alongside Juerg Meister. I’ve also coached on various provincial teams, including at the Alberta Summer Games and Canada Summer Games. In addition to all of that, I’m also a Special Education teacher here in Calgary and a mother to three young kids!

I have always trained, and coached, with the knowledge that there is nothing noble in being superior to someone else, the only real nobility is in being superior to your former self. And teaching for me, whether on the track or in the classroom, is about helping children discover, appreciate and interact with what is happening around them.

I don’t think of Track Attack as just a track and field day camp, it’s a time for kids to gain self-confidence, navigate new social relationships, delve into their leadership potential, develop and strengthen their empathy and much much more. I know that all of that can be brought out in my athletes by focusing on the fundamentals of the sport I love.

I can’t wait to see all my past athletes at the camp! And I hope to meet lots of new athletes this summer too!
