SX Builder, Coach  & Officials Development Camp

BUILDING OUR SKI CROSS BASE

SX Builder, Coach  & Officials Development Camp

Dec 12-17, 2017 Calabogie Peaks

Please find the daily schedule here for the Build Clinic (Tues-Friday)

Join Alpine Ontario Alpin (AOA) and the Calabogie Snowcross Academy for the kick off to the ski cross (SX) season December 12th -17th, 2017!  Course builders, coaches and officials are all welcome to this event.  Thank you to the World Snowsports Events Group and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for their generous support for this project.

White Industries, the builders of World Cup and Olympic SX tracks, will be on site all four days to educate clubs keen to develop and build safe terrain and environments at their clubs.  Appropriate terrain is critical for athlete skill development and White Industries will share techniques to achieve this at reduced cost and increase efficiency. Builders can increase their knowledge of layout, terrain selection, types of features and organization of tracks, as well as much more. Builders from all clubs and resorts are encouraged to attend to become comfortable and confident building cross tracks of all kinds.

Coaches and officials will have the opportunity to review all aspects of SX, from course setting and safety, to environment set up and athlete management. They will also be able to view athletes in training and competition environments.

Coach Education will be delivered by Senior Manager of Coach Education for ACA, Jennifer Stielow, and Official Education will be delivered by Jim Hemlin, Snowcross Academy president and SX commissioner,  and Paul Plotz, FIS TD for snowboard and SX. Both are members of the ACA officials committee.

Please share this opportunity with your club/venue General Managers and operations teams!

This unique four day opportunity has been made available to educate all parties involved in SX training and competition to help facilitate the addition of SX on the AOA calendar.

ACA/AOA will be conducting SX coach and officials training utilizing the course build.  Dedicated SX tracks for builder, coach and official training are rare.  Take advantage of this opportunity and add this date to your calendar for December.  Great timing for those coaches attending pre-season camps in Tremblant as well!
