U16 Program

TRAIN TO TRAIN – The U16 program is designed for 14-15 year old athletes, building on past experiences and further developing their mental, physical and technical skills. Through more self-reflection and use of log books/journals athletes will learn to link their outcomes with their preparations, working towards more autonomy and responsibility for their actions. The experienced, professional staff will encourage clear communication of goals and provide appropriate challenges through free-skiing, drills, and training environments that mimic race situations. Training is primarily on weekends and holidays from late November to mid April with Extended Training opportunities on Thursdays and Fridays. Athletes will compete in zone races, Provincial Championships, Can-Am Western Champs and the Whistler Cup.  U16 athletes have more racing and selection camp opportunities but racing is primarily during the weekends with a few mid-week travel/training days. Overall, U16 athletes are focused on training to race as they prepare for F.I.S. competition. Fitness is scheduled in the fall in both Vancouver and Whistler with Fitness camps throughout the summer & fall -Email Katie Findlay Lead Coach
