The Sunshine Speedsters was formed with the mission to “develop racers with great attitudes.” Well we definitely still have an attitude; we want to be the best all-round skiers and ski racers on the mountain.
We set ourselves apart from other clubs through our approach to creating well-rounded athletes with our commitment to balancing gate training with structured and unstructured free skiing. Sunshine’s diverse and varied terrain is a real asset as the athletes are exposed to daily challenges; broadening comfort zones as athletes conquer the mountain one run at a time.
David Anderson, who was both a Canadian national team and Canadian Olympic team athlete, directs the Speedsters program. David has a deep passion for the sport of ski racing, and strives to share that passion with as many athletes as possible.
If you have ever skied at Sunshine and been passed by a group of blue coats carried by athletes with contagious smiles you have already met the Speedsters. Parents of the Speedster athletes can be found anywhere but the day lodge. No matter the skill level, there is a group of like-minded parents ready to be your new ski friends. If you love skiing, come ski with us!
