FREESTYLERZ (9 TO 14 YEARS OLD)
At this level, the 2 day program is recommended, although a one day a week is an option. Freestylerz is a CFSA (Canadian Freestyle Ski Association) program designed to support the progression of 9-14 year old athletes into a more advanced program. This program consolidates all the basics of freestyle skiing and skiing in general. The coaches in this program have a higher degree of freestyle training and CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance) level of certification such as CSIA level 2 and 3. This program will challenge the athlete to carve their skis with advanced techniques with confidence and style. The athlete will be introduced into moguls and will work on park specific tricks such as riding boxes, rails, spinning and jumps with grabs. http://freestyleski.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/2012-CFSA-Freestylerz-Goalbook-English.pdf
Goals of the Freestylerz program:
The athlete will further develop: mogul skills (carve their skis, control speed and safely hit the jumps), learn more advanced air skills (i.e., switch take off, speed control, grabs, 360 spins), and continue work in the terrain park (route selection, approach and exit). An introduction to Big Mountain riding is also provided. When an athlete graduates from this program, s/he will be encouraged to join the Development Team program for more advanced and older athletes. The Freestylerz Program provides opportunities to compete in moguls, slopestyle, park and big mountain competitions.
