Connecting Ontario’s Youth

COY Blog


COY is an acronym for Connecting Ontario’s Youth, and this blog will be a primary tool used to connect youth in Nordic skiing all across Ontario.

The main goal of project COY is to facilitate more communication and inter-club community at the Bunny, Jackrabbit and Track Attack Level. With this improved communication, we hope the exchange of knowledge and ideas between clubs is enhanced to form a more cohesive ski community in the province of Ontario.

Skill Development Program Update!

A change and update for our Skill Development Program:

  1. Welcome Karen Cheek.  Karen will be your main contact for Skill Development Program materials.  Materials will continue to be operated out of Highlands Nordic. Please update your contact information to [email protected].
  2. We have added a SDP Coordinator’s Discussion Board  to our Project COY – Connecting Ontario Youth.  We are hopeful that this can provide an online forum for club SDP Coordinators to learn from each other and share ideas.
