“It’s an honour to have been chosen to lead this team; they’ll be the top 15 year olds athletes in Alberta and I can’t wait to work with them and learn from them,” said Lajoie. “We want the athletes to be allowed to perform at optimal levels so we get the very best out of them and get and experience that they’ll not soon forget.”
