The Nancy Greene program is all about introducing the sport of skiing as a fun outdoor sport for children aged 4-7 who are already mobile skiers. It is also an introduction to the sport of ski racing for families.
The aim of the entry level program is to teach the athlete core skiing and athletic skills in a fun, positive and safe environment. Their technique is improved through the season by working on the FUNdamentals of sport, with extra focus on the fun!
Every Sunday morning, athletes will gather with their team and coaches and explore Castle Mountain together in a positive coaching and group setting. Coach to athlete ratios is kept low to encourage an ample amount of personal attention during the early phases of skill acquisition. The athletes will also participate in club alpine races and events with their coaches and teammates as their skills develop.
Children registering for the U8 Program must be able to do the following unassisted:
We discourage and do not allow parents of children to assist our coaches. WSC's head coach will assess the skiers' abilities on the first two evaluation days of the season. Program fees will be refunded if the athlete is assessed as not being ready.
Nancy Greene U8 skiers will be grouped according to skill level on the first day and ski with the same group and coach throughout the season.
