Nordic Racers coach Jessica Heyes and NR para nordic athlete Ethan Hess are recent recipients of the Petro Canada FACE Grant (Fuelling Athlete and Coach Excellence), one of 62 coach/athlete recipients in Canada. This grant will allow for more face to face coaching; supporting travel costs and extra coaching time in Ethan’s community of Pemberton and Whistler Olympic Park. Ethan is on a pathway to earn a position on the Cross Country Canada Para Nordic National Team for 2018/2022 Paralympics. Ethan’s portion of the grant will help to cover costs of a new sit-ski and race skis.
Nordic Racers was also successful in getting a Gaming Grant for this season so we are looking in great shape for this coming season.
