Join Team XC Ottawa!
By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2014/04/15)


XC Ottawa is an elite racing team and our focus is to compete at the highest level in Canada and beyond, as well as to develop up and coming racers to race at that level. The main focus of our racing schedule is the Canada Cup series and the National Championships. We do attend Quebec and Ontario Cups occasionally, but these races are not a major focus for our team. Our practices run throughout the summer (2 times/week), the fall (3 times/week) and winter (2 times/week and on weekends when there are no races). We expect team members to be training specifically for cross country skiing, year round. Our coach, John Suuronen designs training plans with input from the racers and also keeps tabs on us using SportLog.

Being a good skier, however, is only part of the story at XC Ottawa. All members are expected to make a significant contribution to the organization (For example: trip planning, sponsorship relations, website duties, ski community volunteering, etc.)

Please read the following to find out more about the team and what is expected of XC Ottawa skiers...
