U12 Program

ESSENTIALS/FUNDAMENTALS – The U12 Program is targeted at ten and eleven year old skiers who show a keen inclination towards racing and demonstrate strong skiing skills. The program aims to elevate each individuals technical skill level through increased volume of skiing, diversity on and off snow, physical and mental training and the introduction to structured competition. The technical model of this program is firmly based on Alpine Canada Alpin’s AIM2WIN document with participation in a limited number of competitions. Training mainly on weekends from December to early April and during the Christmas holidays. Some additional training and educational opportunities will be available throughout the season in the form of fitness training, ski tuning and nutrition clinics. Eligibility for the U12 program is carefully considered by our coaching staff. Therefore, entry to the U12 program must be by WMSC coach referral (at the spring ski-up day) or with proven completion of the Snow Stars level 4 program. - Email Drew Hetherington – Lead Coach
