2012/2013 NNF Nordic Combined Fund Allocation
Nordic Combined joined the NNF community last year in efforts to raise funds for the next generation of Nordic Combined athletes to represent the US on the world stage. The recent successes and fantastic results were possible because of the interest, generosity and support from our amazing American Nordic community!
This summer, the NNF Nordic Combined allocated $36,500 toward 5 training camps to Europe, and paid for 1/4th of the total cost of the trips. The winter season of competitions are now upon us. The NNF Nordic Combined will contribute $41,700 toward the Continental Cup trips and the World Junior Championships this winter which are the stepping stones to the World Cups, Olympics and beyond. These contributions represents about 1/3 of the trip costs and without this support, many athletes could not afford to participate.
Thank you for your continued interest & support of Nordic Sports.
ogether, we are making a difference!
