Name: Zack Jones
Background: I am the Dragons newest and youngest coach. I was fortunate enough to be coached under now retired Dragons and Courtice SS track coach Bill Cunliffe. I ran for the Courtice Cougars for 5 years before competing for the Windsor Lancers Cross Country & Track teams during my undergrad. In 2019 while attending McMaster University to complete my masters I worked with the Marauders Cross Country and Track Team as their social media coordinator. I also run all of the Dragons social media accounts.
I started coaching with the Dragons in January of 2019 after being an athlete with the club since 2008. I completed my Club Coach Endurance certification (NCCP Level 2) in March. In December of 2019, I completed my Performance Coach certification (NCCP Level 3). I do my best to bring enthusiasm and youth to our club while instilling a love and passion for the sport. My main goals in addition to having our athletes succeed on the track is to build rapport and lasting relationships off the track. I believe there is a direct correlation to how a coach-athlete relationship is developed/ fostered in relationship to the performance of athletes. I also have an extensive collection of coaching, running and performance books. I aim every day to be better coach than I was yesterday.
