Minnesota Native Ben Saxton!
Aug 22nd we held a Great Fundraiser for Ben in the Twin Cities. From the Youth event to the Evening at the Saxton home. A Great experience. Wonderful learning, food, conversation and great presentation by Ben that evening about SMS, US Ski Team and his travels. Next time YOU should be Out There!
We are working with Ben ~ US Ski Team & SMS T2 member to help support his dream of being the Next Genereation Out There to grow Nordic in the USA. Ben had great performances last year at U23 Worlds and the opportunity to race at the WC in Falun. What will be next!
Igor Badamshin Had a Great vision of getting Youth participating in Skiing thru games, movement, fun & hard work. This the 2nd year of the Igor Legacy Camps has proven that a NEW Generation on Nordic skier is embracing the ideals of this & TEAMWORK to create the Next Generation out there. This past weekend wrapped up the 2015 camp series in Ironwood Michigan at the Wolverine Nordic Center http://wolverinevillage.com/about_us.htm With Athletes from 10 different Clubs coming together to train and create a NEW Central Region Family & TEAM.
Overview of the CXC Igor Legacy Camps.
Yes we are on a Mission to Grow the SPORT on Nordic. Be it thru Biathlon, Nordic, Nordic Combined, Jumping or other great sports Out There we make it our daily mission to drive forward and grow these great sports.
How do we do this? Well it is a joint effort of sorts. You our Loyal & Growing customer base shops with us in the store or online and generates sales. A good percentage of profits then goes back into supporting the Team Out There athletes around the World! http://outthereshop.com/team/ From US athletes like Ben Saxton & Katrina Howe to others like Leandro Lutz, Vineta Petersone & others we work with.
Do we do this from straight money donations? No, we do this from working with the athletes to create Opportunity. Opportunities come in many forms, monetary, equipment, marketing, fundraisers & more.
