Tyee U12 Athlete Of The Month: December 2013

Congratulations Katarina!

 Katarina Pantovic (11 years old)

Coaches' note: Katarina shows great work ethic, always asking questions, working hard every run, always interested in improving and becoming a better skier. She also helps out her team mates and is generally a very positive skier. Her equipment is always in good working order.

Here is some interesting facts about Katarina:

In addition to skiing, she plays volleyball for UBC Thunder U 13 competitive team and when she is not busy with sports,  she likes playing piano, singing, and making movies on her iPad. She enjoys writing stories and loves reading. Katarina had a great time during the dryland  and had lots of fun shopping for her new ski gear.

She does not like the fact that her teacher at her French Immersion school gives her too much homework so sometimes she stays up late studying.  She is very competitive but sometimes puts too much pressure on herself to do well,  so her goal in 2014 is to learn to relax and have fun too.
