They join second- year coaches Matt Crosby and Nathalie Bazin, who work with head coach Kenni Kuroda.  Crosby is a Summerland native, who grew up skiing at Apex Mountain and went through the AFC program.

He competed with the national team from 2005-09 and during his career earned top- 10 finishes in North America competitions and competed in national championships. Bazin, who grew up in Quebec City, moved to B.C. when she was named to the national team and competed from 2006-09.
