U12 Program

U12 Apex Racers

For athletes born in 2008 or 2009.

The U12 Apex Racers Program is an introduction to the world of ski racing for the more advanced skier with eyes on higher level ski racing.   U12 athletes continue to develop their skiing skills while acquiring tactical skills in giant slalom and slalom. Training includes skills, drills, fitness, gate training and free skiing to develop a well rounded athlete.

The goal is to provide skiers with the opportunity to excel at skiing and experience what it is like to be more involved in organized alpine racing in a fun and supportive atmosphere.

Dryland training begins in September and the on-snow program begins at the end of November or early December through to April, conditions permitting. The U12 racers have the opportunity to train on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as through Winter Break and Spring Break.
