For the last three years all athletes on the Canadian National Halfpipe Team are charged a $5,000 team fee to be on the National team. Most people don’t realize that being on the Canadian National Halfpipe Snowboard Team we have little to no support from Canada Snowboard. Having to travel for our sport we pay for everything down to transport, entry fees, lift tickets, insurance, accommodation, as well as our National Team fee of $5000/athlete, making things a struggle for us to compete for Canada.
The Canadian National Halfpipe Team athletes grouped together to form HalfpipeCAN. HalfpipeCAN is an athlete organization that is motivated by the lack of financial support in their sport of halfpipe snowboarding. There is no middle man, just athletes being proactive for their team and sport. We see the need to fill this gap in elite and developmental funding so athletes can pursue world class achievements and develop their love for halfpipe sports.
Our goal is to provide elite athletes with tools to create fundraising opportunities, brand awareness and compensation for their participation in the fundraising events.
