Athletes are required to read, understand, sign and fulfill our Athlete Code of Conduct This is a training and racing program. Athletes should have a desire to train year-round and to compete at provincial and national levels. A commitment to scheduled team training sessions in the summer and fall and to completing independent training at home and on snow is expected. Daily training logs (including resting heart rates, sleep hours, energy levels, etc) are introduced and used so that coaches can monitor training responses and give appropriate training advice. Athletes are expected to be proactive in informing coaches of upcoming events & activities that may conflict with scheduled training.
Note: We encourage multi-sport involvement for enjoyment and to develop a full range of athletic abilities. Older athletes often have work and other responsibilities. The Head Coach will meet with athletes and parents pre-season to preview schedules, clarify goals & mutual expectations to outline a plan that balances the individual needs of the athlete with the needs of running a cohesive club program. The Head Coach will be flexible in helping to determine the right balance and reserves the right to set minimum training and attendance requirements.
Athletes are expected to have all the required equipment, see the list below:
Please fill out and submit the following forms to the Head Coach prior to the program start date:
