Inspiring News from The Snow Centre:
Sochi bound GB athletes Jamie Nicholls and Anna Turney get behind snowsports at TSC
Together with 20 year old, Professional Snowboarder, Jamie Nicholls, The Snow Centre is developing the next generation of snowboard talent in their Ignite Junior Snowboard Academy. With guidance from Jamie Nicholls, The Snow Centre hopes to inspire the next generation of UK talent to follow in his tracks.
Ignite Junior Snowboard Academy offers young snowboarders, ages 7 -16 a coaching style club where they are given the chance to progress from Level 6 Snowboarding to advanced freeride and freestyle during 2 hour sessions on Saturday mornings.
Following his selection to represent Team GB in Sochi, Jamie adds, “I am delighted to be an ambassador for The Snow Centre and really look forward to helping out where I can. I want to push the Ignite Junior Snowboard Club as I think this is key to bringing up new talent and hopefully one day seeing some of them represent our country in the Olympics too. ”
Also heading for Sochi 2014 is Anna Turney, selected for the Paralympic Team. Anna Turney signed an exclusive deal with The Snow Centre last October. In 2006 Anna broke her back while snowboard racing and determined not to be defeated, Anna decided to become a Paralympic Ski Racer. After three years of intensive training, Anna came sixth in the 2010 Vancouver Paralympics, and is now representing GB in the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games.
In partnership with Snowbility, The Snow Centre welcomes and offers ski lessons to guests with additional needs year round and is the official training base for Disability Snowsports UK. Anna Turney hopes this union will inspire more individuals to get involved in Snowsports. Anna comments: ‘I would not be here, striving to be the best I can be, if it wasn’t for the support of my sponsors such as The Snow Centre.’
