Friday September 6, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

GB Snowsport is looking for an athlete who could join the GB Para Snowboard programme.





The organisation is looking to the 2022 and 2026 Winter Paralympics.

GB Snowsport has an ambitious mission to become one of the world's top five Winter Paralympic nations by 2030.

GB Snowsport is offering 2-4 athletes the chance to attend a multi-nation camp hosted by the Dutch Winter Sports Federation in Landgraaf, Netherlands from 29th September to 6th October.

Accommodation and camp costs will be funded.

GB Snowsport will provide coaching support at the camp.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for female athletes to pursue an opportunity which could one day take them to the Winter Paralympic Games," said Jayne Kavanagh, GB Snowsport head of culture and Paralympic operations.

"We'd love to see people with some experience skiing or snowboarding applying, however we'd also just love to hear from any eligible athletes who would like to be involved.

"There are Para Snowboard classes for both upper and lower limb impairments, and participants would be classified into their respective category of competition."
