I’M AN ATHLETE…OR A PARENT
Welcome to Alpine Ontario Alpin (AOA) athletics. AOA is the Provincial governing body for three disciplines – Alpine Ski Racing, Para-Alpine Racing, and Skier Cross (SX) Racing. All three sports fall under the umbrella of our National governing body, Alpine Canada Alpin (ACA) based in Calgary. ACA, along with its governing body based in Europe, Federation International de Ski (FIS), provides all three sports with a pathway (see below) and a long-term development plan, commonly referred to in other sports as the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD). Please note a new ACA LTAD is being issued in 2018-2019 to include SX.
To learn more about how you get started in each discipline please click on the headings below. Parents are also encouraged to download the PARENT HANDBOOK and learn more about Sport Parenting an alpine racer.
