MONTREAL, Feb. 29, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Under the banner of its
partnership with Ski Québec Alpin, Laurentian Bank is pleased to be
lending its support to young competitors by serving as title sponsor of
the Laurentian Bank K1 Provincial Championship. This high-level
competition is being held March 2-4 this year at the Val-Saint-Côme Ski
Centre in the Lanaudière region.
The K1 Provincial Championship features the youngest skiers on the
circuit — 11- and 12-year-old boys and girls selected by their regional
Ski Québec Alpin organization. These races initiate youngsters to the
world of competitive skiing on a provincial level. They also serve as a
catalyst to get the organization's regional coordinators and coaches to
implement development programs that help these young skiers gain a
solid technical foundation.
"It is by way of competitions like this that future champions begin to
emerge, and our support is essential during this crucial stage,"
underlines Gladys Caron, Laurentian Bank's Vice-President of Public
Affairs, Communications and Investor Relations. "These meetings of
young athletes who originate from different regions help promote
exchange, and Laurentian Bank is delighted to be making a concrete
contribution to their development."
