U16’s are well-versed at competition. U16 athletes are in the learning to race stage of AIM. Learning experiences are enhanced at this level through free skiing, gate environments, video review, and timing.
Dry land/physical training begins the first week of September. On snow training begins in November. U16 athletes train at the Edmonton Ski Club on Tuesdays and some Thursdays. Most weekends are spent training or racing in the mountains. Camps occur over the Christmas and spring break.
