National Winter Sports Association (NWSA) Grants

The National Winter Sport Association (NWSA) was established through the foresight and donation of Bob Disbrow. This generous support of the NWSA is aimed at assisting coaches, athletes and competitive racing programs in Canada; the long-term goal is focused on boosting and sustaining Canada’s performance level and ranking at the international level. During the past four seasons, the NWSA funding has contributed close to one million dollars to enhancing the delivery of club and National Development Centre (NDC) racing programs. The NWSA’s platform of support has a primary target to help professionalize and expand Canada’s network of cross-country ski coaches. NWSA is also committed to allocating some funding support to selected developing athletes who demonstrate a clear financial need and potential towards long-term international level development.

This grant program is delivered through Cross Country Canada. Contact [email protected] for more details.
