IMPROVING SKILLS - GAINING CONFIDENCE - DEVELOPING CHAMPIONS

 

U12 Program - Ages 10 & 11

 

Designed specifically for skiers who are keen to spend more time on snow and have shown an inclination towards racing.  A balance of all-mountain skiing as well as race training helps to build strong skiing skills and a life-long passion for the sport. There are several race events throughout the season and families can choose to attend as many races or as few races as they desire.

The season starts with dryland training in September. On-snow training starts at the beginning of December and continues thru first part of April.

  • Birth Year: 2008-2009
  • Offering 1 or 2 Day Programs
  • Runs December through the first week of April
  • Dryland Training (fall pre-ski conditioning) is included in this program's fees

ADDITIONAL INFO: U12 PROGRAM

Both options are considered the same “team” and any ability may register in either one or two day, for the junior year of birth only. The older age group is to register in the two day program which helps for the transition to U14 the following year.  U12 kids ski every weekend from the beginning of December through to early April. Several extra days over the Christmas and Spring Break holidays are also included. 

U12 is an excellent bridge between the Big White Blazers program and the higher level of training volume of U14.  The program is designed to develop a stable and reliable skill base that will enable a 10 or 11 year old athlete to acquire the more advanced skiing skills in the following years to come.  On-snow time is split between technical free skiing, gate skill and drill courses, ski cross training, and of course all mountain skiing.

The U12s have an opportunity to race against children their own age in regular style ski races - the beginning of their journey as a competitive skier.  U12 is one of the primary (youngest) categories within the club where a dryland training component is offered as well as the on-snow program; U10 Accelerated is welcome to join too.  U12 kids begin to adapt to a more competitive atmosphere where each individual is encouraged to begin pushing themselves through fun competition and quality skiing environments to continue their skill development as skiers and racers of the future.  The primary focus of U12 is learning how to train as a ski racer – and of course… to have fun!

CLUB VAN & RACER ACCOUNTS (U12, U14, U16 & U18)

​Our club has 2 vans which our head coaches use to shuttle athletes who need rides on ski training AND race days. This allows families to have their athletes attend even on days when the rest of the family may not be able to get to the hill! The cost to ride in the van will be deducted per trip from each athlete's Racer Account .

Racer Accounts are a banked fund for each racer, used for van rides and "race fees". Within the "race fees" are the lift tickets, coach expenses, entry fees among other costs.

Any funds in YOUR Racer Account which are not used during the season will be reimbursed at the end of the race season.
