Meet Tim Nelson, U12 Athlete of the Month

 

 

Tim Nelson is the U12 Athlete of the Month for February.  When he's not skiing, Tim can be found listening to music and practicing his drumming. In the off season Tim plays a lot of baseball and enjoys mountain biking on Mt Fromme, when he's not taking a nap on the trampoline.

Tim absolutely hates the end of ski season.  His favorite thing in the world is Oreo ice cream. This is closely followed by sharing regular training tips from coach Titouan and the adventures they have as a team. "It's really fun!"

A little known fact about Tim: he's the youngest person to captain a boat across the finish line of the annual Shark Spit Regatta sailboat race that takes place every summer off of the Discovery Islands in the Salish Sea.

Tim wants to say thanks to everyone at Tyee who has helped him out along the way including his U10 coaches Mathieu and Andrew, who gave him his nickname: Timbit.

Congratulations Timbit on a great season and on being named Athlete of the Month
