Team Staff and Bio's
Coach Sean Freeman has over 25 years coaching experience in several sports, including experiences at college and national team levels. He started coaching track and field in the spring of 2005. Over the last 14 years Coach Freeman has had the pleasure of helping athletes realize their potential in track & field. Most of the athletes didn’t come from a track background but quickly demonstrated their ability to compete with some of the best from around Alberta, nationally and internationally.
Coach Freeman believes there is plenty of athletic talent for track & field in Southeastern Alberta. The hard part is getting athletes to see the opportunities that are available in the sport.
As well as a coach, Sean is also a competitor in Master’s track & field. He has competed in Western Canada at various meets including 2 national championships. In the winter of 2010, Sean was supposed to represent Canada at the Masters’ s World Indoor Championships in the Pentathlon. Unfortunately a month out from the competition he suffered an injury which kept him from competing in track and field for over a year. Sean hold’s 2 indoor provincial records in master’s track & field.
Siri has been coaching with the Cheetahs since 2013, but has actually been with Caltaf for 10 years, first as a throws athlete and then as a Senior Coach for the Cheetah Program. She is currently in her third year at Mount Royal University in the Health and Physical Education Program.
Siri has her NCCP Level 2 and was most recently an assistant coach for the overall winner Zone 3 Team at the Alberta Summer Games. The Cheetah Program was where she developed her love for coaching track and field and she wants this passion and love of the sport to be passed onto generations to come.
With more than 20 years of coaching experience, Dale continually strives to: “help athletes become the best they can be; to reach their full potential, in sport and in life.” He, like many other Spartans coaches, enjoyed a successful track career at the national level before coaching to give back to a sport that empowers its athletes both on and off the track. As such, Dale takes the time to make sure his athletes keep focused on all of their goals, whether athletic, academic, or otherwise.
Athletes who train with Dale receive the benefit of his focus on developing the best possible technique and conditioning through workouts that challenge limits and deliver performance results. His technical focus, an especially important consideration for hurdlers, comes from his own days as an alumnus of the Regina Athletic Track Club and the Calgary Spartans, where he perfected his own hurdling technique until he earned the nickname “the Technician”.
Dale spends countless hours at the track, whether coaching, building equipment, or coordinating equipment at meets. His selfless dedication helps make Calgary’s Track & Field scene a better place for athletes.
“The real value of sport is not the actual game played in the limelight of applause but the hours of dogged determination and self-discipline carried out alone, imposed and supervised by an exacting conscience. The applause soon dies away, the prize is left behind, but the character you build up is yours forever.”
When Dale is not at the track, he operates D and S Creations, specializing in home and office renovations and designing and building track and field equipment.
Deon officially started coaching at Keyano College in 2000 until he moved to Calgary in 2013. During his tenure he was able to produce a provincial champion at the ACAC and a bronze medal at the CCAA Championships. As a coach he was continuously looking for opportunities to improve which led him to complete his coaching levels during this time.
While raising a family in Fort McMurray he took on coaching opportunities in the community. He was running coach for an active and competitive triathlon club for 4 years from 2010 – 2013, training many club age-group members to world championship races.
In the summer of 2013 Deon relocated to Calgary and began to coach privately along with being assistant coach of the SAIT Trojans for the 2014-15 season.
Deon’s approach to coaching is to focus on the individual needs of each athlete both physically and emotionally so that the excitement of winning becomes more powerful than the fear of failure. Therefore, he believes in a stress free fun environment so that the athlete can direct their energy towards reaching their full potential. In addition, he believes in developing a strong, positive (supportive and encouraging) and effective (productive and trusting) relationship between the coach and athlete so that there is a lifelong journey of commitment between both that can last a life time. Hence, Enjoy The Journey.
