TO EXPAND PARTICIPATION AND RELEVANCE OF FREESTYLE SKIING IN ONTARIO
This means running a province wide system that effectively and responsibly increases participation in Ontario’s freestyle community. It means that this system delivers a consistent stream of Ontario athletes to Freestyle Canada’s national team. It means earning an external perception of Freestyle Ontario as being a community leader with ‘best in class’ practices and cultural influence.
To achieve this vision, Freestyle Ontario will work in collaboration with Freestyle Canada, Freestyle Ontario’s member clubs, Ontario’s ski resorts, industry partners, and Freestyle Ontario’s individual members.
Fulfilling this vision will support the healthy active lifestyles of people within the province, drive community engagement, and result in achievements by Ontarians that are celebrated by the sport community.
FREESTYLE ONTARIO WILL FULFILL THIS VISION THROUGH PURSUING ITS MISSION, AND STAYING TRUE TO ITS VALUES.
