THUNDER BAY – NDC-Thunder Bay team members were more than happy to show the up and coming generation what it takes to get to the next level. 140 athletes and coaches from across Ontario descended upon Hardwood Ski and Bike located outside of Barrie, Ontario for a 5 day high performance cross country skiing dryland training camp last week.
NDC-Thunder Bay members acted as mentors and leaders for the camp in order to help younger athletes improve and to motivate them to continue to ski at a high level. 3rd year team member Erin Tribe, who grew up skiing for Hardwood Ski and Bike was very excited to be back in her home town.
She feels very fortunate to be able to help kids understand the sport and to learn from her experience, “this is where I learned how to ski and I was doing exactly what these kids are doing now. I love to get people excited about sport and to test themselves to be the best they can be. To be a part of such an awesome camp and to help raise the level of skiing in Ontario is so rewarding.”
The team is now back in Thunder Bay for more dryland training and will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 1st snowfall!
