IMPROVING SKILLS - GAINING CONFIDENCE - DEVELOPING CHAMPIONS

 

U14 Racer Program (AGES 12-13)

 

At this age skiers are offered additional training days** over and above weekend training sessions. Skiers in U14 continue on their path of learning but gradually mature into talented young ski racers acquiring all the basic skills. U14’s begin to focus more on racing, while maintaining their development of all-mountain skiing skills.

With a higher number of on-snow days, a higher level of competition is introduced with Provincial and Western Canadian Championship events. Camaraderie, personal achievement and all-out fun on the slopes describe what U14 is all about.

**Additional training is offered on Wednesdays or Thursdays (at Big White or sometimes Apex). In total this schedule includes approximately 15 more days than the weekend only program. Racers choosing to participate in the extra days IF at Apex Mountain Resort, lift pass costs will come from your racer account - reciprocal pass discounts apply.

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

‚ÄčOur 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.
