Coast Zone Fitness Testing 29 May 2016





This session will be run in cooperation with other lower mainland clubs, so you are likely to see your friends from Cypress and Seymour.


This testing date is important as it will set the baseline for your fitness development over this year.


Dryland testing is a great way to establish/measure your physical strengths and weaknesses. Regular testing will show you what areas you progress in and which ones need more work. You are only as strong as your weakest link, so testing is a great way to identify if there are urgent areas to work on to prevent injury. All tests are designed with physical qualities required for skiing and racing.


U12, U14, U16 and VST racers should consider dryland testing mandatory and a part of their training routine and measurement. Younger racers are also invited to participate to see how they do and to learn the tests. Do not feel intimidated if you have never done some of these before. Learning how to do them is a part of your development.


Please arrive with proper athletic attire and healthy snacks and water.


We will need some volunteer parents to help coordinate racers, to do recording at some of the testing stations, as well as entering data into the recording sheets. Please email [email protected] for more info or if you can assist.

Location: Mickey MacDougall recCentre (23rd Street East  @ St. Andrews, North Vancouver)

Time: 8.30 am –  1.00 pm (Each group/program has a designated start time!)


Coaches will meet at 8.30 am for setup.

Racers should arrive at the following testing times (siblings can come together). Please, be there AT the starting time as it is logistically impossible to provide proper warm-up if you show up later (insufficient warm-up may cause injuries!!):

  • U14 (2003-2004):          9:30 am
  • U12 (2005-2006):          10:45 am
