February 9, 2015 (Pleasanton, CA) - Jakroo Custom Apparel, who entered the Nordic custom apparel market in 2013, continues to invest in the sport of Nordic skiing. For the second year in a row the custom garment manufacturer has come on board as a “Major Partner” in sponsoring the biggest Junior Cross Country event in North America. This year, Junior Nationals is at Auburn Ski Club Training Center and Far West in Truckee, California, only three hours from Jakroo headquarters. The National Championships will draw 400+ top junior skiers, age 14-19, from across the country.
“I’m really passionate about supporting the youth in Nordic skiing and encouraging the sport to grow,” said Patrice Engle Spyrka Nordic Sales Director. Spyrka grew up at YMCA of the Rockies, Snow Mountain Ranch, outside of Winter Park Colorado, which today hosts one of the best Nordic centers in North America. In her youth, she was herself a two time Jr. Olympian, as Jr. Nationals was formerly referred to. Spyrka says, “At the 2014 Jr. Nationals we sponsored the Parade of Athletes by outfitting the youth ambassadors in Jakroo Nordic warm ups, which were really well received. This year we are once again outfitting the ambassadors, providing hats and bags to the volunteers, and sponsoring the Parent Social.”
Jakroo will be in attendance and setup with a booth in the Vendor Village all week of Jr. Nationals. They will have sample garments on hand, giveaways, warm drinks and a photo station setup to commemorate attendance.
