Competitive Athletes U10-U18

U10

The U10 program is the first level of individual competition for boys and girls 9 years and younger who have acquired basic skiing skills and want to race. Some youngsters will have been members of a Nancy Greene team; others may have no previous racing experience. Like Nancy Greene, the U10 program is an entry level program designed to introduce children to basic skiing and ski race skills. Consistent with the emphasis on fundamentals, training prepares children for skiing all kinds of terrain and snow conditions (bumps, ice, and crud). Physical conditioning and training focuses on the development of physical capacities such as agility, balance, and co-ordination.

U12

The U12 program is for boys and girls 10 and 11 years who have acquired basic skiing skills and want to race. Some youngsters will have been members of a Nancy Greene team; others may have no previous racing experience. The program is designed to continue the development of individual skiing and ski race skills. Consistent with the emphasis on fundamentals, training prepares children for skiing all kinds of terrain and snow conditions (bumps, ice, and crud). Physical conditioning and training focuses on the development of physical capacities such as agility, balance, co-ordination and speed.

U14

In the U14 program, children aged 12 and 13 continue to develop, adapt and refine their skiing skills and begin expanding their racing skills by training for and competing in Slalom as well as Giant Slalom and Kinder Kombi races. Physical training and conditioning focuses on agility, balance, co-ordination and speed skills with the introduction of some strength and endurance training.

U16

In the U16 program, 14 and 15 year old athletes focus on the Train to Train phase of their development as alpine racers. In addition to the continued development of basic skiing and racing skills, strength and endurance training become a more significant part of training. U16 athletes are increasing challenged to adapt and refine the skiing and racing skills they have learned, while learning to pattern and perceive new skills. Consistent with their growing skills and physical capacities, most K2 racers will train for and race all disciplines – Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super-G, and, where appropriate, Downhill.

Junior (U18 & U21)

The Junior program, for 16 to 20 year old athletes, focuses on the Train to Race phase of the athlete development as alpine racers. In addition the program does have a mixture of athletes with differing focuses including those who aspire to and are involved in FIS sanctioned race events, the Quebec Championship Junior series races, and those who simply want to continue the race experience by participating in the local series events.
