Alpine Canada is proud to announce Sporting Life as a national level partner
Calgary, Alta. (October 27, 2021) — Alpine Canada Alpin (ACA) is proud to announce Sporting Life as a new national level partner in its corporate family.
Sporting Life comes on board beginning with the 2021-2022 season and will continue to support the team over the next several years.
Sporting Life is a natural fit for ACA given their role as a preeminent sporting goods retailer with a long history of outfitting Canadians from coast to coast with ski equipment. In addition, Sporting Life has been part of the ACA community over the last several years in a less official capacity by lending their very best ski technicians to the National team. Supporting the maintenance and servicing of national team athletes’ gear during the ski racing season, the service that ski technicians deliver is critical to the success of the athletes, making Sporting Life an ideal partner for the organization.
“As both a racing service technician for Sporting Life and a coach for Alpine Canada, it’s fantastic to see our two companies coming together to support the skiing community and our Canadian ski racers,” says Chris Powers, Canadian Men’s Alpine Team Assistant Coach.
“This partnership is a natural fit for our organization,” says Therese Brisson, Alpine Canada’s CEO and President. “Sporting Life is Canada’s top destination for ski equipment, and a real leader in helping Canadians connect with their passion for skiing. And their behind-the-scenes tech support will ensure our athletes are ready to race, and ready to win.”
"For over 40 years, Sporting Life has been actively working in growing the ski community and getting more Canadians on the hills," says Frederick Lecoq, Sporting Life Chief Marketing Officer. "Through this partnership with Alpine Canada and Canada's Ski Teams, we look forward to supporting their vision in making Canada a world-leading skiracing nation in alpine, para-alpine and ski-cross, while inspiring the next generation of ski racers and their families."
Alpine Canada Alpin and Sporting Life both look forward to the future as the companies come together to support the Canadian national teams in their pursuit of excellence on the world stage. A shared drive for greatness is an indication of a bright future together.
