U10/U12 Enhanced Program

This program includes unlimited access to all training sessions offered by NAC and can include training opportunities up to 5x per week. There are no additional costs for Christmas, March Break or PD Day camps as well.

Every athlete at this stage has different needs and the ability to handle training volume will vary greatly. Each athlete will have an Individual Athletic Plan prepared for the season which will identify their specific training requirements to support the competitions they wish to attend. Participation in this program is also influenced by the recommendations of the coaching staff to ensure athletes are adequately prepared for the program.

The program is designed to support additional racing opportunities including racing in the USA.

This program will introduce athletes to additional training resources such as video analysis and wireless timing on a more frequent basis with occasional opportunities to train with the U14 / U16 athletes.

Participation in off-season dryland training activities is mandatory to be enrolled in this program. Participation in the December Fall Camp is highly recommended.
