Meet the Coaches

Andy Canning

Andy has been involved in the organization of sport and in the participation of sports all his adult life. A veteran marathoner, steeplechaser, cyclist and dad, Andy has a special interest in the formative years when sport is first introduced to kids. He works with the age group called “tweens” between the ages of 8-12. This small and mighty group has shown growth over the past few years and Andy inspires the kids to have fun and learn how to enjoy all aspects of the sport of track and field. Andy is trained as an NCCP Run Jump Throw coach.

Jonny West is a Cape Breton native and our youngest member of the coaching corps, Jonny is a graduate in Kinesiology at St. F. X. and a member of the 2017 Canada Games team. Jonny’s caring and enthusiasm are the cornerstones of his coaching style.
