Foothills Nordic Ski Club is proud to announce that the AltaGas Ski-at-School program will continue to bring cross-country ski lessons to elementary schools in the Calgary area through 2016. Through AltaGas’ sponsorship, Foothills Nordic is able to provide track setting, equipment and first class coaching to Calgary youth.
First launched in Winter 2010, the Foothills Ski at School program was an instant success. Each year five to seven elementary schools receive three days of cross country ski lessons right in their school yard. Children are introduced to the sport by professional coaches in a fun environment. Providing cross country ski opportunities to the public is important for growth and development of the sport. The Ski-at-School program has helped to make the sport accessible to young Calgarians.
Foothills Nordic would like to extend its warmest thanks and appreciation to AltaGas for this incredible sponsorship. We are grateful for AltaGas’ enthusiasm for the Ski-at-School program. It’s great to see a company support a sport from grassroots to the very highest level.
