OTTAWA – It takes a tremendous amount of support for an athlete to get to the starting line of an international competition. To see the athlete compete on the international scene is a profound moment of pride for all those who have been a part of the journey. For family and friends who have been there every step of the way, CanoeKayak Canada has partnered with Celebration Club to offer packages to make this experience a little more special.
As CanoeKayak Canada’s new official National Teams’ Family & Friends Travel Supplier, Celebration Club will offer logistical support and travel packages to travelling fans needing flight options, ground transportation, and accommodations close to the various sprint and slalom venues.
“We’re pleased to be working with Celebration Club to offer additional resources for our biggest fans and supporters,” said Casey Wade, CEO of CanoeKayak Canada. “It’s a big relief for athletes to know their family and friends are enjoying their experience so they can focus on executing their best performance.”
Beyond logistical support, Celebration Club will even plan social events to make for an even richer family and friends experience.
“We’re very excited to have this partnership come together with CanoeKayak Canada. Our dedicated Family and Friends team is looking forward to providing world class experiences for our great Canadian fans.” said Jaime Cruickshank Chief Experience Officer of Celebration Club. “Being a Canadian Olympian myself, I know how important it is for athletes to know that their loved ones are well looked after”.
