The ACA will announce components of the plan in a series of national press conferences.
Some of the goals include: Building on the Canadian Alpine Ski Teams momentum in the sport; increasing the number of racers in the country; enhancing development programs at the provincial and national level; and providing the human, technical and financial tools that our national team needs to win against the best in the world.
The business plan is a key part of the strategy of developing partnerships and sponsorship opportunities for the team while finding ways to get the most out of funding.
Recently the ACA re-established the National Ski Team Fund, which hopes to raise an additional $100,000 for our athletes by Oct. 15 through donations, contests and fundraisers.
Three Whistler skiers are currently on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, Britt Janyk, Michael Janyk and Jeff Hume. In addition, Allison Forsyth, Manuel Osborne-Paradis and Christina Risler are veterans of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club. WMSC coach Rob Boyd also recently returned to the national team as the coach of the womens super giant slalom and giant slalom team.
