Our Board

Nicole Shoaf
President
How did you become involved with STCI?
I joined Just Tri-It when a colleague suggested I would have fun - I was terrified! But she was right and I found a fantastic social group that loves the sport and wants to give back to the Tri community. It's my pleasure to sit on the Board alongside these amazing people!
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
For me it's the satisfaction when I'm finally off the bike and on the run. It's my favorite leg of the race (pun intended) and by then I know that I will succeed in completing my goal - and that makes the run even more enjoyable!
Susan Hamilton

I was a Just Tri-It Saskatoon participant, turned volunteer and I am now co-cordinating the program.
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?

Greg Todd
Treasurer
How did you become involved with STCI?
I want to be part of a team that revitalizes the sport of triathlon in Saskatoon. I feel I have something to offer and I feel like I have gotten so much from the sport - so now it’s my turn to help out!
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
I’ve been running for 25 years but started competing in triathlon during the 2008 season – I was automatically hooked on the sport! I have competed in countless triathlons since then (ranging from sprints to half-ironman distances) and have supported many of the races STCI puts on. Triathlon is an amazing sport and would like to see the sport grow in Saskatchewan.

How did you become involved with STCI?
I became involved at the Board level because I enjoy triathlon and want to promote everything that triathlon stands for in the Province.
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
My favourite part of triathlon is pushing my body to do things today, that it couldn't do yesterday. I also really enjoy the friendships I've made and travelling for races.

How did you become involved with STCI?
I've really enjoyed all the awesome events that STCI hosts since moving to Saskatoon and taking up Triathlon. The positive culture of the club is fantastic and they encourage athletes at every level of the sport. Although I grew up in coastal Nova Scotia I never learned to swim until taking STCI Lessons! I joined the STCI board to give back to a club that has done so much for me.
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
For me it's the moment when I leave transition 2 onto the final run leg. Running is by far my strongest sport and I love the feeling of speed and knowing that I'll be able to reel in some of the competitors who got ahead of me on the swim and bike legs. The final kick to the finish line is a great moment!

Member at Large
How did you become involved with STCI?
My sports medicine physician encouraged me to explore triathlon as running alone was detrimental to my knee health. Since I had no idea where to begin and completely lacked confidence in my ability, I joined the Just Tri It program. This program was exactly what I needed and welcomed me into the amazing Tri community.
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
There is no one part of triathlon that I enjoy more. For me I revel in pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to improve. And let’s not forget the high fives!! The sense of community and encouragement within this sport is phenomenal!
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 favorite 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".
