Nancy Greene

Ages 5 to 9 for 12 or 24 days of skiing

The GKHAT Nancy Greene program is for skiers who want to develop strong skiing skills, have fun with their friends, and learn through a combination of race training environments, race events, and all mountain skiing. Choose Saturdays or Sundays on the 12-day program or Saturdays and Sundays for the 24-day program. Your athlete will be skiing for 12 weekends starting in December and finishing in March, including 3 club events. As a prerequisite, skiers must be able to ski confidently and independently on intermediate terrain. Beginner skiing programs are offered by the Winter Sport school at Kicking Horse. Feel free to contact us to help decide what is the right program for your young skier.

The focus of the Nancy Greene program is to develop skiing and ski racing skills while having as much fun as possible skiing the mountain with friends. We want to spark the ski racing fire in our young skiers! Safety, technical skills, tactics, focus, athleticism, and team spirit are all key components of what we aim to develop in this program to make great skiers who love skiing, and have a strong foundation in ski racing.

Through the season we host 3 club events which are a part of this program and athletes have the option to travel to other local hills for Nancy Greene Festivals and races hosted by our neighboring clubs. These events are always super fun and add a great deal to developing a love for the sport and team spirit.

This begins December 13, 2019.
Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Volunteering

U6 GKHAT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

As your athletes get older and more confident on the ski hill and in the ski program, the requirements for tail-gunning lessen. Skiers in this program move from a 1:1 ratio during club events to a 1:3 ratio. There is still a need for tail-gunners with this age group, but the 1:3 ratio frees up some of our parents to start taking on other roles during club events. We encourage you to tail gun for one or two of the events, but also start volunteering in other “race/event” roles as well. Volunteer Positions for U6 parents:

 

  • Tailgunning GKHAT events
  • Set up/tear down crew
  • Course crew
  • Start/Finish Marshal
  • Starter

 U8 GKHAT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

 

Our U8 skiers turn into strong little skiers in GKHAT and this is where THEY will start to depend on you less and GKHAT gets to depend on you more. While your skier was in the mini program, event volunteer positions were being run by the parents of older skiers. You are now the parent of an older skier and the club needs more of your assistance in the events themselves. We need a balance of parent in this age group sharing the tail-gunning duties and race/event duties. The good news is, most event positions put you in a great position to watch and cheer on your little racer and it is fun to watch their growing independence on the ski hill!
Volunteer Positions for U8 parents:

  • Tail-gunnig at GKHAT events
  • Course crew
  • Set up/tear down crew
  • Gatekeeping
  • Hand timing
  • Starter
  • Start/Finish Crew
  • Shadow a lead volunteer position (Chief of gates, chief of timing)

 U10 GKHAT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

 

Now that your kids don’t want you tail-gunning with their group at all, you are free to be one of our key race/event volunteers. You get to hang out with other parents and learn more about how the events run! We are so happy to have you involved in the events themselves!
Volunteer Positions for U10 parents:

  • Course crew
  • Set up/tear down crew
  • Gatekeeping
  • Timing Crew
  • Starter/Finish Crew
  • Consider a lead volunteer position (Chief of gates, chief of timing)
