U10


Overview

  • MSRC’s U7 & U10 Program are designed to develop skiing fundamentals, confidence, curiosity, and a love for the sport. This includes a focus on parallel skiing, timing cues such as pole plant, and the ability to control the ski in varying environments. Based on Alpine Canada’s “Snow Stars” development levels, athletes will progress from a “skier essentials” standpoint towards a “learn to train” focus in preparation for moving on to the U12 program.

  • Time on snow and quantity of runs are a major focus in this development stage. The program structure will reflect a focus on getting as much skiing in as possible, while incorporating training environments that will create fun challenges to promote skill development. Competition events at the U7/U10 age are structured for simplicity and fun in order to provide a means to introduce racing concepts and competition rules.
