Justin Crabtree receives Ontario 2017 Youth Scholarship Posted on Apr 3rd, 2017

Justin Crabtree

The Ontario Region has been promoting a Youth Scholarship Program to encourage young skiers to become CANSI ski instructors since 2006. Parents, youth or anyone who would like to nominate a person who is between the ages of 15 to 21 years of age at the start of the course can go to our Youth Scholarship policy on CANSI’s website for more details.

This year we year we recognize Justin Crabtree, who currently is the youngest member of CANSI at the age. Here is what Justin had to say about his experience on his first CANSI course - XC Level I certification at Hardwood Ski and Bike, Barrie Ontario:

When I found out I could take my CANSI Level I course after signing up quite late (it’s a funny story- I’ll tell you another time), I really didn’t know what to expect. I had, or at least was hoping I had, all the necessary technique down pat, but I soon found out this was just one aspect of the course. I discovered that being able to ski doesn’t necessarily make you a good teacher, as the amazing course instructors showed us what a good lesson looked like.
