Calgary Police Service recruits will be putting their fitness to the test as they host members of the Canadian National Ski Jumping Team during their regular fitness training.On Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, five athletes representing Ski Jumping Canada will be participating in some unparalleled cross training with police recruits in an effort to mix up their training regimes and experience the camaraderie that exists in policing. Training alongside national level athletes is also a unique opportunity for CPS recruits who get to see first-hand the motivation, perseverance and commitment these athletes have dedicated to their sport. All CPS recruits are also required to have a high level of physical fitness and understand the great deal of effort that is required to maintain that level of fitness.“Fitness is an important part of officer safety,” said Corinne Swirsky, CPS Physical Training Instructor. “Our goal is not only for our officers to reach a certain threshold of physical fitness, but also to teach them skills so they can maintain their fitness and wellness in order to have long careers and remain safe on the street.” As ski jumping is primarily an individual sport, this cross training activity allows the athletes to experience the respect and teamwork that is necessary within a police recruit class. “This is a fantastic opportunity for the national team athletes to experience a different style of training in an incredible environment. The sense of camaraderie amongst the officers is a testament to their training and dedication,” said Tom Reid, President, Ski Jumping Canada. “The amazing team spirit is what I hope the athletes will take away from this experience.”As a part of their training, all recruits participate in fitness activities that test their strength and endurance in a variety of scenarios. As well, recruits are required to successfully pass the Alberta Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police (A-PREP), before they are hired. For more information on recruit requirements, visit www.join.calgarypolice.ca. For more information on Ski Jumping Canada, visit www.skijumpingcanada.com. Media availabilityMedia are invited to attend tomorrow’s training session, which will occur on Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Spokespersons from both CPS and the Canadian National Ski Jumping Team will be available for interviews. This availability will take place at the Westwinds Campus, located at 5111 47 St. N.E.

Our condolences go out to his wife Ada and the family.Erik emigrated with his first wife Betty in the late 1940’s.They arrived in Calgary where Erik made a living as a carpenter. He and Betty were long time volunteers with COP and Ski Jumping which Erik continued after Betty’s death in 2003.One of the highlights in Erik’s experience with the sport was when he was nominated, and went on to proudly carry the Olympic Torch in 2010.Erik will be fondly remembered by many in the Ski Jumping community and his many contributions to the sport will be long remembered.
