K1 Program

ThIs program is for our athletes aged 11-12 on or before December 31 of each season. The K1 program is a seasonal program that begins with a dryland program in early September and runs through the middle of May. Dryland sessions are varied and work on improving physical awareness, motor development, cardiovascular capacity, strength and flexibility. All of these elements combine to build strong, healthy athletes who will be more efficient on snow.

On snow training starts as soon as Nakiska and COP opens, this is usually around mid November. Regular training involves skiing at COP two evenings per week with weekends spent at Nakiska or away at races. Week nights at COP usually consist of technical free skiing, as well as slalom and dual slalom gate training. We generally train slalom and giant slalom at Nakiska on the weekends when we have a wide selection of terrain to chose from.

Children in K1 have the opportunity to experience a variety of racing styles. They will compete in the traditional Slalom and Giant Slalom disciplines but also compete in Kinder Kombi events. We will also participate in a speed camp for all K1 athletes. At the Kinder 1 level, we emphasis the elements of the AIM DOCUMENT as set out by Alpine Canada. Program costs are $3500 plus registration fees and race expenses. The recommended ski pass is a Nakiska pass and COP pass.
