We are excited to introduce you to our new Head Coach Michael Donawa!

Hello. I am Michael A. Donawa, a Bermudian National. I have been coaching track and field continuously for seven years. My involvement in the sport spans over thirty years. I was coached and mentored by Brazilian Joaquim Cruz, in the 800m's. I have participated in IAAF and Lydiard coaching courses and actively work with other professionals to enhance coaching resources.

I am very excited about coaching the Emerald Valley Track Club. It has a very rich tradition in Eugene. I am looking forward to working with all the members and helping to cultivate an environment that is conducive for learning, performance and fun.

I attended university in Kansas and Southern California, where I studied Biology. Later, I spent six years as a Police Detective in Bermuda, before moving to San Diego to study and pursue athletics. I have been living in Oregon since 2010 and Eugene since 2011. When not coaching, I am a practicing Massage Therapist and Phlebotomist. On occasions I do some ranching!

WINTER CONDITIONING IS NOW FULL - We may offer a second session in late February
We are thrilled to announce winter conditioning details! Thank you all for your patience as we organized this for our athletes. Our first session will be as follows:
  • 4 weeks, starting Friday 1/25, from 3:30-4:30pm (1/25, 2/1, 2/8, 2/15)
  • Location: inside at the YMCA (we will be using the racquetball court)
  • Registration will cost $20 per athlete
  • Practices will be led by Coach Megan
We are very lucky to have use of indoor space at the Y, but that also means we may have to cap the number of athletes in this first session to fit the space we have. Please register soon if you intend to join us this session. The focus for this first clinic will be to improve strength, speed, and agility: all skills that are critical for every type of track & field athlete (including distance runners!). Our goal is to help athletes become stronger, improve form, and prevent injury, all while having fun of course!
Register online (emeraldvalleytrackclub.org) if you are interested, and please reach out with any questions.
