Thanks for Athlete Bursary
Friday, 29 November 2013

Dear NOD,


My name is Kyle Reinhardt. I am a recipient of the NOD Elite Athlete Bursary from the 2012-2013 ski season. I would like to thank you for having selected me for this bursary.  Being only 14, I was unsure that I would even be considered for a bursary. I am honored. Your support is greatly appreciated. I will use these funds wisely to purchase equipment that I will require for this upcoming season. Its great that young athletes can get bursaries. It motivates us to train and race harder. This past year was a good year for me and I hope that with all my summer and fall training to date to make this year my best year yet.


My sincere thanks,


Kyle Reinhardt

Gender Effective Ski Tips


The Gender Effective Ski Tips were prepared and published by CCC's Women on Skis committee.

The Women’s Committee is an operational committee of Cross Country Canada (CCC) which exists to ensure equality of opportunity for girls and women as participants, competitors, coaches, officials and leaders in cross-country skiing.  The Committee’s focus is on educating women on the roles they have an opportunity to pursue in cross-country skiing and facilitating the participation of women in areas where affirmative action is required.



Thanks to  University of Alberta Coach, Joan Skinstad ChPC (Univ. of Victoria)  for providing content from her MED (Coaching Studies) research on coaching the female athlete.

This project is made possible through the generous support of the JEMINI FOUNDATION and CANADIAN PACIFIC.
