netting and padding

A safe condition for athletes is very important to ensure they are successful. Each training and competition environment should have sufficient netting to ensure the conditions are safe.

In 2013/14 the Foundation purchased yellow Barry B-Netting and a transportation trailer to transport the netting so that organizations will have adequate netting to host races and other events on their ski hills. In 2013/14 the safety netting was used at numerous U10 to FIS level events across Ontario.

In 2014/15 the Foundation continued this initiative and purchased an additional 2 transportation trailers and additional yellow and red B-Netting from Barry and World Cup Supply.

The Foundation now owns and operates three transportation trailers each carrying approximately 35 rolls of Safety B-Netting. All trailers have a 2-inch ball and can be easily towed by a pick-up truck.

The netting is approved for use at any levels of races/events with the caveat that the event must be sanctioned Alpine Ontario or Alpine Canada.

The Foundation thanks Barry Nets and World Cup Supply for their partnerships on this Safety Program.
