Building Our Best
Presented by the Disabled Skiers Association of BC (DSABC)
The Disabled Skiers Association of BC (DSABC) has been successful in implementing a ‘learn-to-race’ program called Building Our Best (BOB). Carving the Future was initially inspired by and continues to be motivated by BOB and the recruitment and awareness the program has created. BOB camps and recreational races provide an opportunity to develop and teach adaptive and cognitively impaired athletes to take their skiing to the next level through the introduction of ski racing. This program continues to help build the future for para-alpine skiing in Canada. For more info on these camps, contact Sue Greenberg, Athlete Development Coach, firstname.lastname@example.org.
