IMPROVING SKILLS - GAINING CONFIDENCE - DEVELOPING CHAMPIONS

 

U14 Team (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 Fridays (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.
