Early in December, CVA coaches, athletes, and their families reunited with dear friends and welcomed new ones with the start of our Weekend Program. Three hundred athletes ages 8 to 19 registered for our program this year, representing the disciplines of Alpine, Freestyle, Snowboard, and Ski Cross.
The CVA Weekend Program has been offered at Sugarloaf for decades and has seen growing participation year after year. The program offers competitive athletes an opportunity to train with a coach weekends and vacation weeks from December to March and offers off-season training opportunities as well.
The mission of the Weekend Program is to provide every athlete with the intrinsic motivation and opportunity to be the best they can be. This is accomplished through positive coaching which leads to progressive improvement for each individual in technique, tactics, and the mental aspects of competition.
The primary goals of the program are to:
Instill the life-long love of skiing/riding
Build strong technical fundamentals
Promote good sportsmanship, fun, and camaraderie
Provide a developmental and competitive progression for U8-U18 athletes
