ALUMNI – Provincial Team

OVERVIEW / PHOTOS / CANADA WINTER GAMES TEAMS / DID YOU KNOW

We invite all readers to take a peek into the history of our province’s elite skiers, many of whom started in programs offered at their local cross-country ski clubs. Whether you’re an alumni, a parent considering cross-country skiing for your children, or a curious reader looking to learn more about the history of the provincial team – there are many compelling stories of determination, achievements, and camaraderie.

Overview


Team alumni have proudly represented our sport and province at regional, provincial, and national level competitions. National races include the Canadian Cross-Country Ski Championships, and the Canada Winter Games.

Additionally, provincial team alumni have raced at the World University Games, won major events at the Gatineau Loppet, won the Canadian Ski Marathon, and trained with the National Espoir Canadian Ski Team. 

History Worth Repeating


The Nova Scotia provincial team retains incredible people and athletes. Passionate leaders, dedicated athletes and countless volunteers with “can-do” attitudes, have been at the heart of our history for decades. As might be expected, our teams have developed exceptional camaraderie levels – bar none.

The program continues to be delivered within a close-knit community, bringing competitive cross-country skiers together from across Nova Scotia; who become like family. Volunteer alumni coach and support the team. The whole experience is a meaningful investment in the lifetimes of many Nova Scotians.
