THIS IS A PERFORMANCE BASED PROGRAM!
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. The program is designed to support additional racing opportunities including racing in the USA and culminating the season by participating at the U14 or U16 Ontario Cup Provincial Championships. This program will expose athletes to additional training resources such as video analysis and wireless timing on an extensive basis. Participation in off-season dryland training activities is mandatory to be enrolled in this program as well as the December Fall Camp. Participation in the AOA Fall Fitness Testing is required to be able to compete in the AOA Provincial Championships.
The U14 Program is focused on the Train to Train phases of the LTAD. It continues to build on the elements of gliding, tucking, jumping and moving over terrain skills with a focus on linking terrain features and turn shapes together. Super G and Ski X are also formally introduced into competition at this stage.
