The Vernon Ski Club is excited to present its programs for the upcoming 2016/17 season. This season we made some changes which reflect our mission of ‘Excellence in Skiing and in Life’. Our goal is to provide the best possible environment at every level to give every child the best experience and most opportunity to succeed.
We are excited to announce that the Snowsports School will be offering the ‘U7 Rippers’ program which will give our youngest athletes the best possible start in skiing. Key features of this program include:
•Ski more with Lift Line Privileges through the SnowSports School Entrance
•Same coach throughout the entire 11 Week Program
•Use of certified CSIA / CSCF/ CFSA / CASI coaches
•The meeting area within Silver Star Adventure Centre creates a safe and warm gathering spot.
•Measurable outcomes – coaches will keep a log of children’s progress as they run through a step-by-step process to build their skill base and review this progression log with each parent throughout the season.
•Fun non-competitive events on mountain
•Interclub events with Silver Star Freestyle Club and Vernon Ski Club
All athletes born 2010 and earlier should register with the Snowsport School U7 Rippers program.
Starting this season we will be offering more in-house racing for all our club racers. The goal is to reduce the pressure to travel to competitions and give our young athletes (and their parents) more exposure to the competitive environment. More details to follow.
We are also strengthening our coaching staff. The club has made a significantly higher investment this year in retaining some very high quality people with a diverse skill set to work with VSC athletes. This coaching staff is led by Andrew Lambert (Head Coach; academy and U16 Coach); Ian Chernencoff (academy, U14 coach and videographer) and Rodger Poole (U12 coach, EL coordinator). New additions will be announced in November.
It’s going to be an exciting year – THINK SNOW!
