The goal of the WMSC spring training, spring and summer camps and fall training camps is to develop the technical and tactical components of ski racers that will be retained and transferred into next season.
Training is available to any young ski racers born in 2008 or earlier.
Training groups will be split into the following stages of development according to the Canadian Sport for Life long term athlete development model. Athletes will be grouped and streamed into and within the stages of development according to age, experience and ability.
Learn to Train (8-11 yrs. of age)
Train to Train (11-16 yrs. of age)
Train to Compete (15-24 yrs. of age)
Weather models and forecasts predict a big ‘El Nino’ snow year in Chile this year… so we have set our dates (Sept 8 – 30) to take advantage of more lane/slope options, firmer snow and spring discounts on accommodations.
Recognizing the dates overlap with the start of school for many, we will have a tutor/coach on staff to help get a start on the academic front.
The camp will progress from freeskiing and drills to SL, GS, Super G and possibly some DH mileage – but speed elements training will be available at the least. A day trip or two to Santiago will offer some cultural experiences, souvenir shopping and some rest/recovery time at lower altitudes.
Camp cost – excluding air: $6500 Club Members, $7500 Guest racers.
Included: Accommodations, meals, lifts, ground transportation and coaching.
Flights: $1310 Sept 8 – YVR – YYZ – SCL (+ 1day) . Return Sept 30 SCL – YYZ – YVR (+1day)
Please contact Rob Boyd email@example.com for more information, to hold a flight and/or a camp spot. Space may be limited… Registration deadline – Aug 22nd
Want to check out the European ski racing scene? Maybe train beside some fast National and Regional European teams? This is the place to experience a hotbed of training, on one of Europe’s best fall training glaciers.
Target groups are U16 and FIS though strong U14’s will be considered as well.
This camp was very productive last year. Attending the World Cup race was a highlight for many and inspired them to ski to a new level once back on snow!
Preliminary costs (excluding flights) are approximately $2500 for Club Members, $3000 for Guest Racers .
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you are interested in this camp so we can prepare accordingly.
