The U16 Racing Program caters to racers aged 14 & 15 and replaces the former K2 program. In addition to the standard U16 Program a new enhanced U16 Development Program has been launched to run alongside the Club U16 Program. Learn more here>>

U16

The U16 age program is aimed at providing athletes, aged 14 and 15, the continuation of the ACA LTSD Learn to Race phase and progress into ACA LTSD Train to Race phase. U16 competition events are to be focused on the development of ski racing skills and promoting the performance on demand.

ELIGIBILITY
Any child that is 14-15 years of age as of December 31st of the current season is eligible for the U16 racing program.

REGISTRATION
All U16 athletes must be registered through the AOA online registration system and have a signed waiver to compete in any events or camps.

SKILLS CAMPS
Each season, AOA hosts a series of U16 skills camps to provide athletes with additional days on snow to help develop strong, basic skiing skills. The skills camps provide additional training days to supplement the development that the clubs are providing. The camps focus on creating a stimulating, challenging, fun environment for the athletes to fuel their passion for the sport and improve their basic skills. The camps are divided into three groups for different ages. The 2-day camps can be best described as: professional, safe, educational, and FUN. A low coach-to-athlete ratio, combined with top level coaches helps to ensure that athletes will progress. Alpine Ontario will be using Ontario Team staff and club Head Coaches whenever possible.

Registration for each of these skills camps must be completed through the AOA website and attendees must be registered AOA members. To register for these camps and to access more information, please visit here.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS
All parents are strongly encouraged to become involved and join Alpine Ontario as general members. Parents are also encouraged to participate in an official’s certification program so that they are able to understand race formats and rules and volunteer at events. Visit the officials section on the website for more details on how to get involved.
