9th U16 Alpine Athletic Champion Challenge on Sunday, 24 October in North Vancouver
Fitness at all levels - agility, endurance, power, speed, coordination - is key for success in ski racing and for an injury free and successful career.
To motivate the young U16 athletes to work on their fitness in the off-season period, coaches Jordan Williams (National SkiX Team) and Tamara Schaupp (Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club) have joined forces to create an exciting and challenging fitness event that tests all important fitness components in a fun way.
The first Alpine Athletic Champion U16 Challenge for all U16 coast zone ski racers took place on October 20th, 2013 in North Vancouver. Check out Details at Events and Venues. We are proud to be hosting the 9th annual AAC event on October 24, 2021 in North Vancouver.
The goal is to set up courses and circuits that challenge the U16 athletes' speed, agility, spatial awareness, endurance and coordination. This fitness event is FREE for all participants! There will be some great prizes for the top three female and male athletes, as well as some awesome draw prizes. The trophies - one for male and one for female Alpine Athletic Champions - go to the winning clubs for one year until they are handed over to the new winners' clubs.
