Ages 8 & 9 as of December 31, 2018 (born in 2009/2010)
Now more technically competent, skills will continue to grow within race and free skiing environments. Typical training days include gate training and some technical free skiing. Teams will free ski at Sunshine Village and Lake Louise throughout the season, to expose them to different snow conditions and terrain. Program dependent on level of commitment, more days on snow will show higher level of skill development. Video sessions will assist the athlete to understand what changes are needed in their personal skill development. Season starts with athletes participating in Dryand training in September. Athletes will work on aspects that will prevent injury and give them a stronger start to the season.
