Alpine Summer Conditioning

Alpine Strength & Conditioning


For a deposit on winter 2020/21 alpine competitive program fees the SSWSC alpine athlete can take part in directed and supervised summer strength and conditioning. These programs are designed to give ski racers off-season guidance and coaching in off-snow preparation for winter training, as well as establish a strong strength and conditioning base for higher intensity training in the fall. Strong and well-conditioned ski racers are able to maintain their technique and a fast racing line in progressively more difficult situations, recover more quickly from long on-snow training and competition days, and decrease the chance of injury. Coaching will focus on proper movement patterns emphasizing a full range of motion. Coaches will work with athletes participating in summer sports to manage their training load while providing appropriate preparation for ski racing. The program will accommodate family vacation. It will be creative, fun, difficult, diverse and build towards the athlete’s racing goals for next season.

SSWSC members who are SSHS students: If you are going to be a sophomore, junior or senior next year, this program may be counted toward PE credit. You must enroll in this program and sign up for the Summer PE option through your SSWSC account. Do not sign up for the class through the high school.

Ages below based on racing age during the 2021/22 ski season.

Fundamentals of Strength & Conditioning

A new program for 2021! An introduction to the weight room covering everything from weight room etiquette, how to read prescribed programming, weight lifting technique, and much more to create a solid understanding of why training off-snow is important. Created for athletes who are at the onset of the peak height velocity growth phase, this program is an essential piece to build athletes’ confidence in the weight room, understand body awareness and continue to dial in proper movement patterns to help avoid injuries. A movement screen analysis will be performed at the onset of the program to understand the fundamental role that movement patterns play in athletes’ athletic goals and daily movement.

FunFit

For U12 Athletes

FunFit is a program designed around developing sound fundamental skills in body movement, kinesthetic awareness, strength, and improving cardiovascular endurance for aspiring athletes. During these sessions the focus will be to keep the FUN in fundamentals! By providing games that allow athletes to move in multi-planar motions, interact with other athletes, and develop confidence, all while learning the underlying themes of movement patterns, proper form and technique. Better movement quality during childhood prepares young athletes to better manage the growth disruptions during puberty. This can in turn help avoid injuries & keep athletes playing safely.

DATES AND TIMES:

Mondays & Wednesdays 11:30-12:30 OR Tuesday & Thursdays 10:30-11:30, June 14 - August 13

COST*: $400
