2020/21 PROGRAMS 

We cater to all levels of Freestyle riders, from those at an introductory level, all the way up to those at a highly advanced, World Class level and are the only program in Ontario that provides this opportunity for advancement.  Our Senders programs are a proven progressional pathway to the National teams.  Many of our former riders also end up maintaining strong friendships and often travel and live together after their time on the team.  The time spent on the team in a familiar environment with mentorship, allows them to build strong friendships and helps to prepare them for independence.

FULL PROGRAM 

To sign up for our Full Program, Request sign-up forms HERE

The Full Program is the best option for those who are looking to do well in competitions over the season, or who are looking to seriously advance their skill sets.  Team members have an additional 12 Friday training days through the season.  Once competitive season kicks in, many valuable training days are lost due to the event schedule consuming most weekend dates.  This makes the Friday training dates of vital importance for more training opportunities.  Friday training dates also have less traffic in the Terrain Park to allow for more laps and even higher quality input.

Program Frequently Asked Questions

What level do I need to be at in order to participate in our programs?

You need to be able to turn, control your speed and ride down a variety of runs on the hill comfortably, in order to participate in one of our programs.  

Which Program is right for me?

The program options only differ in price and number of days, it's purely a budget and available time decision for each parent and participant.  It doesn't matter what level you are at, we have coaches on hill to work with all levels of groups from beginner to expert, for each program day.  
 

Who will I be riding with?

First year team members are grouped together with riders at a similar level.  Participants are split into groups based on ability, which decides who and where you will spend the majority of your time training with and which coaches you will be training with. Participants progress through the program to work with more experienced coaches and join more experienced riders as their skills develop accordingly.  The more days you are able to commit to, the more chance you have of maximizing your progression.  Priority is based on building a foundation for progression in order to progress in a safe and strong fashion.  Groups are re-assigned during the season according to coach recommendation so that riders are put in the best environment according to their skillset.  

 

Where will I be riding during the programs?

Those riders who are at a beginner park riding level will spend most of their time in the Skoolyard Terrain Park, where there are smaller, lower risk features.

Riders who are at an Intermediate level will spend most of their time in the Junkyard Terrain Park where there is a mix of small, intermediate and large size features.

Advanced team riders will spend a majority of their time in the Junkyard until the Outback Terrain Park opens up over on the Moonstone side of the resort where there XL sized higher risk features.

I have a second family member who wants to sign up as well, do you have any type of discount for them?

We have a 10% discount for family members on the cheaper or equivalent priced program.

How do I sign up?

Contact Us and let us know the program options you would like.  We can send you the relevant online sign-up forms which take about 10-15 minutes to complete and e-sign.  No mailing or meeting in person is necessary.
