Head Coach Ulf awarded CCA Coach of the Year

ENSC’s Head Coach Ulf Kleppe received the Cross Country Alberta Coach of the Year Award for 2017-2018 at today’s CCA annual general meeting.

Ulf has been Head Coach with Edmonton Nordic since November 2011, and during that time he has served as a great ambassador and leader, teaching athletes young and old alike how to ski technically well, and through his own ‘lived experience’ of ski racing, the enormous value of active healthy living and how to manage the rigours of ski training. But perhaps his most important message has been to always foster a life-long love of nordic skiing through having fun, building community and making friends.

You may have seen Ulf whizz by while training at Goldbar or Strathcona Wilderness Centre, or even at a ski race such as the Birkie, but if he is going slow enough to stop and chat, say “Hei”, and perhaps learn about about the secret powers of Bløtkake!

All at ENSC congratulate Ulf on receiving this award, it is very richly deserved.

 

Chris Hanstock

President, Edmonton Nordic Ski Club
