All participants MUST FOLLOW ALL Health Authority, Freestyle BC and Silver Star Mountain Covid-19 health and safety guidelines in place while attending the 2020/21 Silver Star Freestyle programs.
The Development Team introduces Freestyle skiers AND Big Mountain skiers to the competitive environment. Fall dryland sessions are recommended in this program to prepare athletes for 2 days of on-snow training per week and 2-5 competitions per season. Water Ramp and Air Bag training is a requirement to acquire certain air skills starting at this stage.
The DTeam is for athletes who have chosen freestyle (moguls, slopestyle, big air) &/or freeskiing (big mountain) as one of their top sports. Athletes in this program generally compete in Super Youth or Regional freestyle/freeski events. The DTeam prepares athletes for a smooth transition to Timber Tour and/or IFSA Jr. Freeski events when they are ready. *Please note that at this time coaching will not be provided at IFSA events*
Our athletes are ages 11+ and commit 1.5 or 2 days per weekend (+ camps during the school breaks) to training and competitions.
This is an 'Invite-Only' program. If you think DTeam is a fit for you please contact email@example.com.
