Hello U14 Parents!

It certainly feels like we’re lucky enough to get an extended summer! It has been fantastic to start meeting athletes and parents at dryland sessions lately. We have lots scheduled over the next few weeks, so I invite you to read through the following for more details:

WMSC FITNESS ASSESSMENT – Friday, October 21st
We are holding a club-wide fitness assessment session for all WMSC athletes on Friday, October 21st from 9am to 1pm at the Whistler Racquet Club.

Athletes should arrive “fitness ready” (indoor running shoes, sports clothes, water, and snacks). This event isn’t mandatory but is encouraged if you’re available. Athletes will work through a series of Alpine Canada fitness assessments with their peers.

Each athlete must register to the ACA Fitness Combine using the link below, before October 19th: https://snowreg.com/#!/events/aca-fitness-combine-british-columbia

How to Register:
1. Click “Register Now” on the right-hand side of the page (please ignore the Vancouver location, this event is taking place at the Whistler Racquet Club)
2. Log in or select “Create an account” (please note the account should be created under the athlete’s name)
3. Follow the registration steps

U14 PARENT INFO SESSION – Monday, October 24th
We will be holding a U14 Parent Info Session over Zoom on October 24th from 19:30 to 20:30. The Zoom link will be sent prior to the session.

U14 MINI DRYLAND CAMP – Weekend of October 29th-30th
All U14 athletes are invited to participate in this Mini Dryland Camp that will take place in/around Whistler on Saturday, October 29th and Sunday, October 30th.

A more detailed plan is attached; athletes can expect to participate in Sports Saturday, do some team building activities, head out for a bike ride (catering to various ability levels), and do some gymnastics in Cheakamus.

Athletes must register using the registration link below as there is a small cost to attend Whistler Gymnastics: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/WhistlerMountainSkiClub?season=3174642&session=57227446

FITNESS OPPORTUNITY
Athletes looking to supplement the existing dryland and fitness schedule can consider signing up to the Whistler Sports Legacy Youth Strength and Conditioning weekly program (suitable for youth between grades 7 to 9).
