Welcome back athletes and parents!

I hope everyone had a great summer and was able to manage some down time after a very hectic season. Ares athletes had a great 2013/2014 season with some great postings at a number of competitions including Youth World Championships, Youth Olympic qualifier, Nationals and Pan American Championships. Hats off to our athletes for your achievements this past season. We proud that you’re representing our club and country as you compete around the world in pursuit of athletic excellence. Keep the fires stoked as you set your sights on your 2014/2015 goals.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our associate members, supporters, parents and Board for the unwavering support over the past season. Things would not happen without your help, so thank you again and again. We truly appreciate your time and efforts to keep our club growing and advancing. And thank you to our coaches for their time and dedication to our club especially Darragh who has been a cornerstone for our coaching. Thank you.

We’re excited that we’ve kicked off this new season, yesterday, in our new home at Talisman Centre. It’s fantastic that we were able to secure a spot in the centre and we’re proud to be one of the affiliated clubs. Being in Talisman represents a lot of hard work from a lot of people in our club and demonstrates that we’re moving into a position to be a high profile club that will raise the visibility of Pentathlon as we grow to be a dominant club in the sport.

Stay tuned for more updates on the website.
