U16 and U18 Apex Racers
U16 – for athletes born in 2004 or 2005, U18 – for athletes born in 2002 or 2003
These athletes are introduced to more intensive training and competition. The program provides a competitive series allowing them to test their skills against their peers at a regional level. The U16 program also develops ski specific physical and mental skills and continues to develop the athlete’s technical and tactical skills. Personal achievement, camaraderie and fun is what the program is all about.
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 U16 and U18 racers have the opportunity to train on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as through Winter Break and Spring Break.
