Program Information

The Sun Peaks Alpine Club provides exciting and challenging on and off-snow programs for young ski racers all the way from our Nancy Greene Ski League (NGSL) to top level provincial competitors.

We are constantly striving for excellence within our programs and coaching staff.

One of our fundamental philosophies is to help our racers achieve their goals, and encourage them to support each other in acheiving their goals, regardless of ability.

Nancy Greene Ski League Programs (U6 to U12)

The Sun Peaks Alpine Club offers five ski programs for skiers aged 5 – 12 years old using the Nancy Greene Ski League Format. These programs deliver customized free skiing and introduce young skiers to alpine ski racing. The focus is FUN on skis.

The “Snow Stars” program – a seven step skills progression program for children at this age level – supplements the Nancy Greene League and offers a fun method of learning the skills of skiing and eventually ski racing. Friendly competition is built into training days through various courses and terrain, including ski cross elements. Teamwork and enjoyment of the sport are encouraged throughout each training day.

Coaches are Canadian Ski Coaching Federation (CSCF) certified and Canadian Ski Instructor Association (CSIA) certified, many with ski racing backgrounds.
Programs are generally organized according to chronological age. However, within each age category, we strive to group racers in small groups according to their ability. To this end, our training groups will vary with respect to age and coaching so that each athlete gets the attention and direction that they need to further their development. All skiers in the Nancy Greene Program will have the opportunity to participate in one ‘away-race’, as well as our very own Nancy Greene Festival and Wacky World Cup events. Although children are encouraged to participate in races, they are not mandatory.

Plus you’ll have so much fun that you’ll forget that you’re volunteering! Volunteering can take many different forms; A shift in the clubhouse as club parent (a great option if you have younger children), hot dog days, races (both on-hill or off-hill positions), fundraisers, being a board member, etc. If you have any questions about volunteering, feel free to ask your NGSL parent rep (or roles that are re-imagined during this COVID season).

Racers further increase their ability in the ABC’s (agility, balance, coordination, strength/speed) and continue to grow lasting friendships. Skiing days consist of free-skiing exploration on all types of terrain and in all conditions, free-skiing with technical focus, and gate training such as dual races, obstacle races, and slalom and giant slalom. Racers will continue to focus on skills in a fun environment, while benefiting from the camaraderie of training and racing with other athletes from both within, and outside of the club.
