Benefits of Membership

Cross Country Alberta is the provincial sport governing body for cross-country skiing. By being a member of Cross Country Alberta (CCA), through our member clubs, an individual member gets to be an integral part of the cross-country ski community in Alberta. A CCA member also gets to have the opportunity to contribute to the collective strength of Alberta 's cross-country ski community.

The greatest motivation behind people's involvement in CCA is vicariously through their local club, and that is typically done because they wish to contribute to their community.

Cross Country Alberta is only as strong as the membership's collective wisdom and energy. CCA wishes to place and emphasis on the many volunteers from clubs throughout the province that drive the evolution and ongoing development of all our programs. CCA wished to recognize the many volunteers throughout the province, and their efforts to contribute to the sport of cross-country skiing.
