The Wanaka Snowsports Club has announced that during winter 2021, 80 year 2-8 school children will each be receiving extra tuition at Cardrona /Treble Cone. $15,250 of Grassroots grants will be paid directly to the program providers to assist the children to improve their snow sports skills.
The 2021 Grassroots award covers all snow sports disciplines. It includes children who want to improve their alpine skiing techniques, learn more freeski/snowboard park and pipe skills or improve their freeriding techniques.
The club has distributed almost $100,000 dollars to primary school aged children through the Grassroots program since the programs initiation with five children in 2013.
A number of WSC’s previous Grassroots children have represented NZ in USA and Europe in age group and open competitions for alpine racing, freeskiing and snowboarding. Some of our past Grassroots children have been selected in NZ Development Teams and other less competitive children continue to enjoy snowsports as a their favourite winter pastime.
Applications for 2021 have now closed.
