U14 Alpine ages 12-13 years (YOB 2000/1999)
At this age kids are offered an additional training day over and above the weekend training sessions. Kids in U14 continue on their path of learning to train, but gradually mature into talented young ski racers acquiring all the basic skills. U14s begin to focus a little more on racing, while maintaining their development of the basic all-mountain skiing skills. The racing element is not much more than U12, but a higher number of on snow days allow skills to grow, suiting the physical and psychological progression for kids of this age. 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.
U16 Invitees age 13 years (YOB 1999 only)
The invitee program is a new idea for this season to help continue the challenge and development of our racers who are in their second season of U14 (formerly K1). U16 invitees are actually 1999 born U14 Alpine racers. Right from the start of the season these kids will join the U16 Team for all dryland, training camps, and regular on-snow training. When the U16 Team travels to a U16 specific event, the invitees will join the U14 Team. U16 invitees will also rejoin the U14 group for specific U14 events such as the Provincials or Western U14 Championships. + $175.00 to the regular U14 registration fees =
