Lead U16 & Up Mid/Long Distance Coach
Raeleen first entered the track and field scene as a teenager, after being scouted by Leduc Track’s John Bole. Her interest in track and focus on mid-distance training led to a full scholarship at an NCAA division I university, West Virginia University. Wanting to support Canadian Athletics, she made the move to Ontario’s Windsor University, where she finished her degree in Human Kinetics. Running for the Windsor Lancers, Raeleen was coached by the late Dennis Fairall and Gary Malloy.
Raeleen’s coaching career began as she renewed her presence in the Edmonton Track & Field scene. She began coaching for the Edmonton Triathlon Academy while she worked toward the completion of her masters in coaching at the University of Alberta. She had been working with the UofA’s Green & Gold athletics program, when the opportunity arose to partner with Capital City Track Club.
As Capital City’s mid-long distance coach, she is determined to provide athletes a high performance training program that’s fun, and where athletes learn to balance training in their lives by making healthy decisions.
