5 Draft 3 Introductory 2 The I2 program is the first level of individual competition for boys and girls who have acquired basic skiing skills and want to race. Some athletes will have been members of a Nancy Greene team; others may have no previous racing experience. The I2 program is an entry level program (AIM Document, Learning to Train phase) designed to introduce children to basic skiing and ski race skills. Consistent with the emphasis on fundamentals, training prepares children for skiing all kinds of terrain and snow conditions (bumps, ice, and crud). Physical conditioning and training focuses on the development of physical capacities such as agility, balance, co-ordination and speed (ABCs). Age: 10 years and under as of December 31 in the competition season 11/11/2013 5:08 AM Club Mont Ste Marie Alpine Overview 5

6 Draft 3 Kinder 1 In K1 programs athletes continue to develop, adapt and refine their basic skiing skills. They expand their racing skills by training for and competing in Slalom as well as Giant Slalom. This level blends the Learn to Train & Learn to Race elements of the Alpine Canada athlete development plan. Physical training and conditioning focuses on agility, balance, co-ordination and speed skills (ABCs) with the introduction of some strength and endurance training. Athletes race in skin suits for the first time and skis for each event is recommended.

7 Draft 3 Kinder 2 The K2 programme focuses on the Learn to Race phase of athlete development. In addition to the continued development of basic skiing and racing skills, strength and endurance training become a more significant part of training. Athletes are challenged to adapt and refine the skiing and racing skills they have learned, while learning new skills. Consistent with their growing skills and physical capacities, most K2 racers will train for and race Slalom, Giant Slalom & Super-G. At the K2 level there is the opportunity to earn a place on the regional elite team operated jointly by the Outaouais Ski Zone of SQA and the National Capital District of Alpine Ontario.

The program includes athletes with a mixture of focuses ranging from simply participating in local series events, through participation in the Quebec Championat Junior Provincial series races, to those who aspire to and are involved in FIS sanctioned race events. In order to provide an environment that is competitive for all, Junior competitors race in two categories (JA & JB) grouping athletes of like ability: JA and JB. The national points system is used to establish the points break for the JA and JB category determinations. The rankings will be set by the NCD-OSZ Junior Committee prior to the start of the race season keeping in mind the size of the field and point differentials.

9 Draft 3 Programme Fees Club Mont Ste Marie is a not-for-profit organization that delivers the alpine race programme on a break even basis. The cost of the programme to athletes is calculated on the basis of: Coaching Costs – we try to keep an athlete to coach ratio of 6:1 and remain competitive in terms of the coaching fees that we offer to get top coaches Administrative Costs – very low as most work is done by parent volunteers Equipment Requirements – there are a number of essentials in ski racing, two of which are safety and timing. Club MSM has the best timing system in the region as well as the greatest inventory of safety equipment which must be maintained on an ongoing basis. Our programme fees are competitive across the region. 11/11/2013 5:08 AM Club Mont Ste Marie Alpine Overview 9
