Canadian Archers to benefit from new technical sponsorship of the national team
OTTAWA (Archery Canada) – Archery Canada is pleased to announce a new partnership with Cool Canuck Corp., a technical sponsor of our national teams.
Together with other national team sponsors, this agreement will see key technical equipment provided to Canada’s top archers, specifically to address some of the extreme environmental conditions that may be faced during outdoor tournaments.
Cool Canuck, a private company located in Toronto, ON, is the Canadian distributor for a variety of safety and temperature regulating technologies. Members of the national team will be outfitted with a number of innovative products to help address specific concerns that will face the athletes in the summer’s competitions. They will be augmenting national team gear with cooling apparel to better equip the teams for all conditions.
“Partnering with Archery Canada was an easy decision for us,” says Dan Dexel, of Cool Canuck. “We create evaporative cooling products designed to keep the user drier and cooler using a patent pending fabric technology. Phase change cooling, required for high humidity is achieved with Cool Pax inserts, provided by TechNiche International”.
“It’s great to have a partnership with Cool Canuck. From our first meeting, they’ve brought innovative ideas and products to the table,” said Shawn Riggs, National Recurve Coach. “Managing body temperature in challenging conditions is a key opportunity that isn’t largely being exploited by archers. Cool Canuck has assisted the team with a number of effective cooling products that we believe will help contribute to some exciting results this summer.”
Archery Canada is the National Sport Organization responsible for the promotion and development of the timeless sport of archery in a safe and ethical manner. Archery Canada supports the achievement of high performance excellence in archery in all categories and the development of a national archery infrastructure to promote archery participation across Canada in cooperation with the Provincial/Territorial Archery Associations.
