This program offers a more competitive training environment and introduces athletes to a higher level of competition. Building off the athletes love of training and personal progression, the U14 coaches work with the athletes to develop their own goals and personalized training plans. With support from their coaches and peers, athletes are consistently challenged to expand on their personal best in a safe and supportive environment. Athletes success and satisfaction at this level is attained by exceeding their own expectations and celebrating these achievements with their team!
Following the Aim2Win document (a ski specific long term athletic development plan from Alpine Canada) the U14 program works to develop confident skiers in all disciplines of alpine skiing. Athletes in these programs train in Slalom, GS, Super G and Ski Cross courses. All our athletes will take part in organized KAT Club Activity days as well as participate in organized competition through team and individual club events. Fair play is promoted and recognized with awards for every competitor resulting in huge smiles and great memories. At U14 athletes compete regionally at Kootenay Zone Races and Provincially. These events follow a more traditional competition format that promotes athletes to strive for personal success by awarding the top performers in each race. Athletes spend an increased amount of time working towards their individualized goals and developing a love for training and personal development.
