Executive

Nathan Evans
Co-President
How did you become involved with STCI?
I started out in the swim program so I could learn how to not drown while competing in my first triathlon. From there I competed in a few duathlons and a few more swim sessions. I really enjoy the comradery within the club. The people are amazing! I joined the board to give back to the club and had my arm twisted to volunteer for the Co-President position. I am exited to continue moving the club forward and grow this great sport in our community.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
This changes almost weekly. Now that I can swim (sort of), I really enjoy it. I also enjoy a long bike ride if the wind is not too bad (good luck in Saskatchewan). More often than not, my favourite is the run. I love to run. I also like to carbo-load!

How did you become involved with STCI?
My wife invited me along to the AGM. I like swimming, cycling and trying new things so I thought I would give it a go.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
It is socially acceptable to wear spandex while competing in a triathlon ;)

Treasurer
How did you become involved with STCI?
A few drinks into a 2018 New Years Eve Party, a friend asked if I wanted to do a triathlon with her. I enthusiastically said yes! I have never run a day in my life (except, maybe in highschool gym class; and that is a big maybe). I had not been on a bike in 20 years and had just sold a mountain bike I had bought in 2007 which still had the price tags on it. I thought I could swim though! Ha - recreational swimming is not the same but definitely the easiest of the 3 to improve upon. We gathered 5 of us to register that night for the JTI program and for varying reasons only 2 of us finished the program and the Makin' it Happen mothers day race. I was hooked; but still so scared. I signed up for the JTI2 right away, but ended up sick and could not participate for the first few weeks so I dropped out. I volunteered to help out at the Living Sky Pike Lake Race that year and loved the feel and camaraderie of the triathlon community. In 2019 I signed up and did both JTI and JTI2 + 5 triathlon/duathlon races that year. I was completely hooked. My family was in awe and so proud.
Being a CPA, I joined the board when I found out there was a need for more support in the treasure role and here I am today, still committed but also still feeling like a newbie after a year off. I can't wait for the next JTI program to start and hope anyone new to Triathlons will read this and feel like it is worth a try. You will love it!
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
Finishing! There is no better feeling of accomplishment than crossing that finish line and hearing all of these people (some you don't even know) cheering you on. What an amazing supportive community where everyone can find a feeling of belonging.

Board Members

Jennifer Davey
Secretary
How did you become involved with STCI?
My sister who is an avid triathlete, recommended the club when I first moved to Saskatoon as a way to be healthier and meet some really great people. I started with the Learn to Swim Program and excitedly volunteered to be on the Board this upcoming year.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
The finish line!
Helene Haughey
Member at Large
How did you become involved with STCI?
I was a Just Tri It Saskatoon participant and loved it so much I started to volunteer with the program.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
I love to push my body and challenge myself. It has also been a joy to watch and help other people tackle goals that they never thought they could accomplish. This is an amazing and supportive community and because of this, I have accomplished goals I never thought possible. This has been an incredible journey.
Lacey Shroeder
Member at Large
How did you become involved with STCI?
Peer pressure from my family, especially my two daughters. My husband and daughters had all competed in the sport, so they had been “encouraging” me to join the fun. I began first by learning how to swim, then I entered the Just Tri It race. The following year I decided that I was hooked and joined the Just Tri It training program and I’ve never looked back! It’s now just a lifestyle for our family, you will frequently see us out biking, running or splashing around a pool together.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
The finish line comradery. I love the encouragement and the sportsmanship that come with this sport. "We are in this together".

Liaison - Saskatchewan Triathlon Assoc. Corp. (STAC)
How did you become involved with STCI?
I joined the board to help grow triathlon in the city and make it a growing part of the province's triathlon scene.
What is your favourite part of a triathlon?
I enjoy triathlon as part of chasing the kids and a few weekend warrior challenges. Gives me something to look forward to every few weekends. Good for the mind and body.
