This program offers a more competitive training environment and continues to build on the skills developed in U14. Building off the athletes love of training and personal deelopment we expand tha to a love for competing. Athletes work with coaches to develop their own goals and personalized training plans. With an increased intensity in training, athletes are constantly working on race specific skills and striving to acheive their personal goals. Athletes success and satisfaction are often attained by exceeding their own expectations and celebrating these acheivements with their team.
Following the Aim2Win document (a ski specific long term athletic development plan from Alpine Canada) the U16 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. Athletes spend an increased amount of time in high intensity training environments that simulate competition. Coaching staff constantly push the athletes boundaries while maintaining a fund, safe and supporting environment. Increased emphasis is placed on preparing athletes to compete on the Provincial Open U16 Circuit. Success at this level is determined by athletes achieving goals that they have set for themselves.
