The South Simcoe Dufferin Track & Field Club

The South Simcoe Dufferin Track & Field Club is an incorporated non-profit organization. The club was formed in 1970 with the amalgamation of the Tottenham and Orangeville tracks clubs. A short time later the Huronia Striders track club based out of Barrie dissolved its membership. At that time many of the athletes from the Huronia Striders integrated into the South Simcoe Dufferin Track & Field Club.


The club has been based out of Barrie for a number of years now with the majority of our membership being from the City of Barrie. However, we do attract athletes from centres throughout the region including Collingwood, Midland and Orillia to the north and west of us and from Bradford and Alliston areas to the south. Over the years we have maintained a healthy steady membership of between 85 to 90 members but recently there has been a noticeable increase especially those athletes in the elementary school ages. We have 7 full time volunteer coaches and an additional 3 part time volunteer coaches that specialize in the various events and disciplines of the sport.


We are members of Athletics Ontario and the Minor Track Association of Ontario. Through those associations we are also a member of Athletics Canada.
