ALL ABOUT U8
Skier Essentials & Love to Ski
The U8 Program is for 6 and 7 year olds who LOVE to ski! Who you have to drag off the ski hill at the end of the day because they can't get enough. They're the kids you have to remind to TURN and stop going straight down the hill as fast as they can!
This program is ideal for athletes born in 2015 and 2016 who are comfortable skiing mountain green runs at a minimum, working towards parallel, with the physical stamina to ski all day.
In this 38+ day program, we train 2 days per week with optional xmas & spring training camps. The program is a balance of skill drills, gate training, obstacles courses, moguls, halfpipe, jumps, trees, powder - anything and everything to fulfill these little rippers' love of skiing.
CWASC follows Alpine Canada Alpin's Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model for every age group. The emphasis is on building ski skills, making friends, and creating little ski junkies who can't wait to get back on the hill.
