ACA Para Rising Stars Camp

Gwen Binsfeld, the AOA Para Program Directors submits 

“Alpine Canada invited five Ontario Para Athletes to their Rising Stars Camp in Kimberley last week. Mark Newton, Para-Alpine Athlete & Sport Development Manager, together with ACA Paralympic coach Lasse Ericsson, provided an excellent opportunity for Ontario athletes to work with WC level coaches, and ACA development team athletes. Five of the six invitees were from Ontario!

Sit skiers Rod Crane, and Brian Rowland were able to put their new rigs to the test on the bigger wide open hills, while three trackers (leg amps, skiing on one ski) Rebecca Mideros and Abbey VanDuzer worked on taking slalom gates. Sarah Gillies was also invited, but chose to stay back to do the Mackenzie Investments U16 OCUP Mid-Winter series. A great week for everyone.

All skiers are headed for Ontario Winter Games next month, together with the rest of our Ontario Para athletes.”
