MY

STORY

"What an amazing season. I'm really excited to be racing in Kitzbuhel, Austria this Jan 16th to 21st , 2018, can't wait." 

James (Jack) Crawford was born in Toronto, Canada on May 3, 1997. He began skiing with his parents, sister, and cousins at the age of three at the Georgian Peaks Ski Club in Thornbury, Ontario.

The Crawford family has a tradition of ski racers beginning with his aunt Judy Crawford Rawley, who was on the National team from 1967- 1974 and his father, Angus, and his uncles, following closely behind.

Jack attended Primary school and part of high school in Toronto before finishing up at Whistler Secondary in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

In his spare time, Jack loves to surf, waterski, golf, road bike and mountain bike, as well as spend time with his family and friends in Whistler and Ontario. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of spare time!

 

Jack progressed through Nancy Green, K1, and K2 with the Georgian Peaks Ski Club. In his last year of K2, he moved out to Whistler, BC to ski in the mountains as a single year experience. It proved to be a very good experience for him, and his family made the decision to allow him to continue to ski out of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club.

 

He was a multi-disciplined athlete, playing A hockey with the York Mills Hockey Club in Toronto until he was 15. After his first year of FIS and at the age of 17, he was named to the National Development Team, and in 2016-2017, he was named to the National Team.
