A Bit About The First Lap
Supporting and Sustaining participation in Winter Sports
The First Lap is a cross-country ski coaching service delivered by current high-level athletes and experienced coaches across Canada. We have modelled our program after a successful endurance running program by Mile2Marathon (M2M). We are excited and feel fortunate to have M2M as a consulting partner in the launch of The First Lap in Fall 2022.
The First Lap is a Canadian WinterSports Inc. (CWS) service branch. CWS is a distributor of cross-country ski equipment and waxes.
