New Head Coaches for U16 and U12 this coming season

In our club’s continuing effort to deliver a program of excellence, we have hired two outstanding professionals to head the U16 and U12 programs.

Gavin Preziosi has been on skis for many years, and has been coaching since the year 2000. Gavin is a Level 3 certified CSCF Alpine Coach, a Level 1 Park and Pipe coach and a Level 1 Skier Cross coach.
His expertise is U16, having been the Head Coach for this group at Sunshine Ski Club, before moving to Vancouver. Prior to that, Gavin spent two seasons as Program Director and Head Coach of Alpine Saskatchewan.
Gavin is a dedicated coach and we are sure our U16 athletes will thrive under his guidance.

Mark Anderson’s racing experience is quite impressive, having made it all the way up to Canada National Speed Team. But foremost is Mark’s expertise and knowledge in coaching the U12 group which he has been coaching for 11 seasons. His rapport with kids is impressive, and his technical eye is very refined. Mark is fully committed to deliver the best coaching to each racer. Having coached at Whistler Mountain Ski Club, Mark knows what it takes to create passionate and technically skilled young racers.

So we welcome Gavin and Mark to our team. In conjunction with Andrzej Lawnik in the U14 group, we are sure we will be able to create the pathway needed to create hard working, committed and proficient skiers within our club!!!
