Alpine Programs

Competitive 8+

The primary goals of Team Breck Sports Club Alpine Age Class and Ability Programs is to cultivate a lifelong passion for the sport of skiing, and athletes; to develop the technical and tactical skill to achieve the goals of the individual skier while developing life skills.

Alpine Programs will emphasize skill development through free skiing in a variety of winter environments while emphasizing the tactical part of ski racing. This exposure and mileage in and out of gates becomes the foundation for all future development and success as an alpine ski racer. We define success at each age group by increased individual improvement. The younger age groups focus on fun and the development of basic fundamental athletic skills, strength, technique and stamina. In the U16 and older programs athletes begin to optimize specific sport skills and fitness toward competing in their sport.

 

A Season Pass must be purchased to participate in the program.
