In this episode of That’s AWSM! we have drafted 15-year-old Mohawk sports enthusiast Kait and one of Canada’s fiercest Olympic Ice-Hockey champions, Caroline Ouellette!! They will be embarking on an adventure of exponential proportions, but first Kait gets the opportunity to hit the ice with Coach Ouellette and the Stingers, the women’s hockey team at Concordia, where there is almost never a dull moment. In today’s activity, we are taking leg day to a whole new level, as Caroline and Kait face their greatest challenge yet… VIA- FERRATA!
Fun factOnce did stand-up comedy!
You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone and Delmer & Marta, or you may have heard that he’s produced a few films and web series himself, but it’s time to get to know DARCY WAITE as host of That’s AWSM! Outgoing, sporty, goofy, warm, and entertaining, Darcy is down to try any and all of our AWSM activities… unfortunately he doesn’t often get to! He can recite every single line from every Will Ferrell movie ever made, and will only drink coffee from Tim Horton’s, but there is nothing he loves more than meeting teens from communities all over Canada and helping them live their best AWSM lives – which makes him the perfect guy for the job!
CommunitySix Nations of the Grand River Territory
Kait is a 15-year-old Mohawk and sports fanatic from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory who plays softball, hockey, and rugby – to name a few. She aspires to one day play softball for Team Canada in the Olympics, and if that doesn’t pan out, no worries, because this gal has a plan B – she plans to join the military and eventually become a police officer! Perhaps the only thing more impressive than Kait’s sports skills is her chewed-gum collection… Yes, that’s right – Kait has a chewed gum collection that is almost the size of her head! Now that’s the result of hard work and dedication!
