This is the first year the camp is being put on by the Pomeroy Inn and Suites, and PacificSport Northern B.C. Morrison, who is an Olympic speedskater, says the camp will be focused on a number of sports for those who want to take their skills to an elite level.
“I’m looking to make it an all sports camp… it’s not necessarily a speed skating camp,” he explains. “The camp is geared towards kids who might be wanting to participate in the upcoming Canada Winter Games.”
Morrison notes that the training needed to participate competitively in sports will be one of the main focuses.
“[I’ll] take them through some of the programs that I do for my training for the Olympics off the ice like jump programs, power and agility and things like that and some core stuff, as well as some seminars for mental training and nutrition.”
Those interested in taking part can contact Jennifer Gibson of PacificSport at 250-794-3308 to register.
