Feb 26 2019 - ANB invites the athletic community to support Youth Participation and High Performance
Athletics NB (ANB), the governing body for Track & Field and Cross Country Running in New Brunswick, is proud to announce its 2019 Fundraising Initiative. For well over 50 years, ANB has provided our NB youth and athletes the opportunity to enjoy the many facets of our sport at both the recreational and the high-performance levels.
ANB currently engages over 25,000 youngsters every year across our Province through its Run/Jump/Throw/Wheel Youth Program along with other activities and competitions. This nationally recognized introductory program launched five years ago, introduces children ages 6-10 years to fundamental movement skills and development of physical literacy through various track & field activities and games. Our programs build confidence and provide children with a strong sport foundation while having fun and being initiated to competition. Our highly qualified coaching staff works closely with our clubs, schools and community organizations to engage our New Brunswick youth and spark a love for sport that lasts a lifetime.
In addition, Athletics New Brunswick financially supports the growth of its athletes into the high-performance levels through financial and training support and participation at local, regional, national and international competitions. In 2018, nine NB athletes were supported at the highest Elite level, eight at the High-Performance level, and another 67 were recognized as performance or development levels. Continuous funding is required to assist these athletes in realizing their potential so they may achieve their dreams and proudly represent their home province of New Brunswick and, increasingly so, their country of Canada.
Athletics New Brunswick is seeking to provide stronger support and greater opportunities to these youth and high-performance athletes while maintaining affordable membership fees for all. Through a partnership with SportNB, patrons of Athletics can now contribute to ANB’s Youth Participation and/or High-Performance programs. Every dollar given will help young New Brunswick athletes grow and develop in our sport. All donors will receive a Tax Receipt for donations of $20 or more in accordance with the current Canadian Tax Act.
We sincerely appreciate all patronage support.

Athletics New Brunswick (ANB) and Run New Brunswick (RunNB) are very pleased to announce that Stéphanie Doiron will be joining both organizations as their new Executive Director effective March 4th, 2019.
“On behalf of the ANB Board of Directors, we are absolutely delighted to welcome Stéphanie as our new Executive Director”, says ANB President Marc Lalonde. “Stéphanie brings a rare range of experiences as an athlete, as an administrator and coach, and for the past four years as a professional in the field of operations with a leading NB based global company.”
A 2015 Dean’s honour graduate of the Faculty of Administration at the Université de Moncton, Ms. Doiron was also this university’s 2014 Athlete of the year and the 2014 recipient of the Frank H. Sobey Award for Excellence in Business Studies.
“Her strong credentials make her an ideal candidate to lead ANB in our next phase of growth both in terms of youth participation and in the development of our high-performance athletes at all age levels. ANB has been most fortunate over the past 25 years to have had talented leaders, first in Dave Thomas who singlehandedly advanced the sport across our Province and over the past nine years with Gabriel LeBlanc, whose creativeness and unrelenting energy, has made ANB one of the most dynamic sport associations in the country.”
A Rogersville NB native, Ms. Doiron will be joining an elite ANB team of staff professionals in Steve LeBlanc, its High-Performance Coordinator, Chris Belof, its High-Performance Coach, and Julia Loparco its Director of Youth and Intro Programs.
“Through the interview process it was very clear that Ms. Doiron has all of the aptitudes including strong communication and interpersonal skills, to also serve as RunNB’s new Executive Director, just as Gabriel LeBlanc has done”, states RunNB’s President, Mary Brosnan. “Our RunNB board has accepted the recommendation that we continue our relationship with ANB in the sharing of the Executive Director position, and we look forward to working with Stéphanie and the members of her team in the future.”
“I certainly welcome this great opportunity offered to me by the ANB and RunNB Boards”, states Stéphanie Doiron. The sport of athletics is very much in my heart and soul and to have such a unique opportunity at this early stage of my professional career is certainly a challenge I welcome wholeheartedly. I look forward to working with my colleagues, all of the ANB and RunNB athletes and participants, member-clubs, coaches, officials, administrators and naturally our supporting partners, including the Sport and Recreation Branch of our provincial Ministry of Tourism, Heritage and Culture. Together I know we can advance our sports of athletics, road and trail running to new heights, all for the benefit of our NB youth and those who engage in healthy and active living.”
