Ski-at-School Application Program: Apply by Sunday May 29

To all member clubs: CCC is still looking for more applications for their Ski-at-School Program. Don’t forget to apply by Sunday May 29!

Cross Country Canada is proud to launch the 2nd year of the Ski-at-School Program, Powered by AltaGas!

Ski-at-School is a CCC program, sponsored by AltaGas, which aims to bring cross-country skiing to schools across Canada. The Ski-at-School program will knit together communities of teachers, students, and local ski clubs, Cross Country Canada, AltaGas, coaches, equipment suppliers and volunteers to support this initiative and make it into a success.

The main driver behind the Ski-at-School program is to allow students to experience the sport of cross-country skiing, because it is a life sport. Cross-country skiing can be enjoyed at many levels of skill and it involves all major muscle groups, balance, endurance and strength. Cross-country skiing builds self-esteem, confidence as well as health and well-being, and cross- country skiing can be done in a group or individually.

Grants are currently available for program start-ups! The deadline for this year’s grant application is May 29th, 2016.

Attached, you will find the program brochure, and grant application form.

Should you have any questions, email us at [email protected]

Sport For The North Equipment Drive News Release

Sport Central has set a goal of collecting & donating $500,000 of sports equipment to players & families affected by the wildfires in Northern Alberta.
Due to the tragic fires in northern Alberta, there is a substantial need for sports equipment.  The goal is to raise $500,000 worth of new and gently used sports equipment for those affected by the fires.  First, for the families currently displaced from their homes, both with specific sport needs and just staying active wherever they are, as well as their ongoing need to replace equipment lost in the fires once the damage has been assessed.
