Friday Training

Friday training is available this week. Please remember to email Nikki Wait in the race office PRIOR to Thursday morning to register your child. You must include your child's full name and age group (i.e. U10, U12 etc.). It is vital that you register your child ahead of time so that the race office can ensure they have enough coaches on hill.

Please note that all athletes attending Friday training MUST be able to ride the chairlift alone. The coaches stay on the hill while athletes cycle up and down on their own.

 

U14 SOD Championships

This race is open to both Division 1 and Division 2 athletes.  The event is 2 days with Slalom on March 19 at Caledon and Giant Slalom on March 20 at Mansfield.  Please contact Nikki Wait in the race office for more information and to register.

 

U16 SOD Championships

The scheduled dates for this event are March 19 and 20.  Please stay tuned for more information.  Exact format and location of the races have yet to be determined.

 

Gooch Cup Cancelled

After much consideration the organizers of the Gooch Cup scheduled for March 7-9 have decided to cancel this event.

 

March Break Training Days

Training will be offered over the March Break starting March 14 from 9am to 3pm each day. The cost is $60 per day. We must have a minimum number of athletes registered each day to run the training and all athletes MUST be able to ride the chairlift alone.

Please register your athlete no later than March 5, so that we can ensure we have enough coaches to run the program. If we do not have enough athletes registered there will be no training. Register with Nikki Wait in the race office.

Clothing pick-up and Decente jacket orders will be available this weekend on Sunday only.  Due to the club Championship races this will NOT be available on Saturday.
