Tanya Dubnicoff Receives Coaching Grant
BMX coach (and former world champion) Tanya Dubnicoff is one of 10 high performance coaches who will each receive $10,000 for skill development through GM Canada's Making Dreams Possible Program. Dubnicoff will receive the money in relation to her coaching of Samantha Cools of Airdrie, Alta.
We contacted Tanya to congratulate her on the award, and asked how it would be used to prepare Samantha Cools for the Worlds and Beijing.
Thanks! Remember it's only 10 grand!
It's pretty much spent. We have been taking the COC recommendations pretty seriously in preparation for Beijing. This means some money spent on technology and the rest spend on travel and pre-Olympic preparation. One recomendation is traveling first class for minimal impact on the long flight. You know how much those (flights) cost!
We will be traveling to Beijing this summer after the BMX Worlds in Victoria (late July). We are going to test our preparation this year to be sure we are ready next year.
