CYPRESS SKI CLUB – U8/U10 & U8+/U10+

UNDER 8/10 ALPINE SKI RACERS

Inspiring Skiers for Life

Under 8/10 – 8+/10+

All our programs have been developed to follow Alpine Canada’s recommendations for Long Term Skier Development for Alpine Ski Racing, as detailed in their AIM-2-WIN model.

This program goal is to develop speed control and skier confidence on a variety of terrain. Children entering this program need be able to ski on a green run and be able to load the chairlift themselves, or with minimal assistance.They are grouped according to skill level and age on the first day. Adjustments to the groups are done throughout the season to acknowledge skill improvements and ensure children are kept challenged and motivated.

This age group participates in events that focus on skills rather than actual racing. The focus is learning how to move and developing overall movement skills used in all sports. Critical windows of trainability at this age group include general athletic formation, speed of movement, agility and coordination. Fun based skills events are scheduled during the season and participation is optional.

By the end of the season, children should have developed confidence on the hill, improving their ability to ski with speed and in a variety of terrain. A positive attitude and constructive feedback are fundamental tools to help children achieve success.

This program is a fun and fast way for kids to progress into technically good skiers. Races are optional throughout the season; however races are a great way to develop friendships in a fun environment while demonstrating new skills.
