Academy Fall Training 2023
Alpine Insurance Alberta World Cup Academy

Support our Athletes

The Alberta World Cup Academy aspires to provide cost-effective opportunities to athletes who show the potential to become internationally successful.


High-performance cross country skiing is a costly endeavour for athletes and very often for their families.
No club or athlete can be successful longterm without the unwavering support of the community that can motivate and inspire an athlete to greatness.
It is this concept, one of community and wholeness, which is the backbone of Alberta World Cup Society.

Our athletes have chosen to move their lives to Canmore or Calgary in pursuit of their goals and dreams, often leaving their families and pivotal support systems at home.
What if we can grow their family and increase the community that supports them?

Every time the athletes put on their skis, whether in Canmore or on the other side of the country, the value of being surrounded by people who know their story cannot be understated.
The Alberta World Cup Society is proud of its Academy program – in 2023, over 50% of our athletes represented Canada on the international stage.
There are many ways to support our program and athletes directly:


Your support ensures:
– Our operations run smoothly
– Year-round programming
– Excellent coaches are retained
– Prrogram fees for athletes stay low
