Hamilton Olympic Club


Celebrating over 98 Years of Track & Field!
Our mission is to help Track & Field athletes in the city of Hamilton realize their potential at all levels of participation – from recreation to elite competition.

The Hamilton Olympic Club (HOC) is proud to be the oldest continuously operating track and field organization in Canada. Established in 1926 by a group of local businessman, the Club committed itself to providing quality training opportunities to Hamilton’s youth. This has remained our focus to this very day. From its illustrious beginnings to the present, many HOC athletes have competed at the provincial, national and Olympic level.

“Our Club provides programs for athletes from age 8 to adult in the various disciplines of track and field. Program availability varies by season, so do take a look at our detailed program information links.”
