The SOD team is named to recognize and support the development of athletes racing the SOD Paraffin Series races. The goal of the SOD Team is to support these athletes to begin to race competitively on the Ontario Cup circuit and to prepare them to qualify for Team Ontario. The SOD board believes that the promotions of an active ski racing circuit within SOD will strengthen the ski community by providing opportunities for skiers to come together through fun and friendly competition.
We are delighted to inform the SOD community of new appointments. Holly Strickland will be the new SOD Coach and Jon Strickland has assumed the role of Assistant SOD Coach. Holly and Jon are coaching at Arrowhead Nordic. The SOD Team will benefit from their passion and experience.
Suzy Shalla has accepted the role of SOD Coordinator. Suzy has had two sons, Matthew and Emmett participate in the SOD team recently.
Welcome aboard Holly, Jon and Suzy!
Selection Criteria for the 2023-2024 SOD Team will be established in the fall of 2023, and will be determined by the number of SOD Paraffin Series events for the coming season. Stay tuned!
