Team Starfish T Shirt
This super soft relaxed fit T-Shirt looks good on anyone! This special collection is branded with the Team Starfish logo and money raised from the sale of this shirt will go directly to Emily Trepanier. Read her story below!
My name is Emily Trepanier but, when I’m training and racing down the hill, they call me Starfish. I’m a blind alpine adaptive snowboarder. I’ve been snowboarding for 8 years and racing for Ontario for 5 years.
My goal is to compete at the 2022 Winter Paralympics as one of the first blind Snowboarders. Parasnowboarding made it debut at the 2014 Winter Paralympics. My category that I would be participating in would be the Visually Impaired Adaptive Snowboarding. It is currently in the process of being developed and my name has been put forward to Team Canada. I'm also an recipient of the Ontario Quest for Gold Athlete Carding Card.
While I wait it’s important that I continue to train hard both on and off the hill. During the winter months I train at the hill a few times a week with my coaches/guides and I’m at the gym training a few times a week with my personal trainer and 1 day a week doing DDPY.
During the summer months I train at the gym a few times a week with my personal trainer and do cardio both indoors and outdoors and SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) cross train with my SUP coaches/guides 2 a week. I also do DDPY once a week.
This coming Summer, I'm heading out to Vancouver for a good part of the summer to continue SUP cross training with my current SUP coach Drew.
Training is intense and costly but it needs to be. I am very thankful to have the support of my family, friends, training team and a few local sponsors but always looking to add more sponsors and supporters to help me as I continue to work toward my goal.
The "Team Starfish T shirts" have been created as a fundraiser to help offset some of my upcoming training (on and off hill) and race costs.
Please consider supporting my journey toward the Paralympics by buying one of these Team Starfish T shirts. Your support is greatly appreciated.
