High Performance Youth Program


We are pleased to launch our 'Canadian High Performance Youth Program'.


New for 2020-2021, this is a high-performance program for serious youth athletes in the ‘Learning to Train’ and ‘Training to Train’ phases of long term athlete development based in Canmore, Alberta.

 

Located in Canmore, Alberta, the ‘High Performance Youth Program (HPYP)’ runs from November 2020 – May 2021. The program starts with a fall camp @ Sun Peaks and ends with a speed/equipment testing camp @ Sunshine in May.

The modules provide what we think is the ideal amount of training stimulus for u12 – u14 (high volume – high focus over short specific blocks), with adequate time for school, physical training, other activities and rest

There are no activities planned for the period December 17 – January 25.  We are taking the latter portion of December and most of January off to allow for;

  • better use of the warmer months (namely April in Norway and May at Sunshine)  

  • peak performance (learning & passion) in the latter 1/3 of the season

  • focused high volume in season physical training block during December – January, designed to make significant in season gains

  • scholastic advancement

The IR system is designed to build the foundational mindset, athletic and technical – tactical skills that will hold up in the most demanding situations.


Beliefs
 

•    That a growth mindset provides the foundation for success in sport & life

•    That strong character development and accountability are keys to growth
•    In durability…you’re never going to be fast watching from the sidelines. We believe in developing the flexibility, mobility, strength, power & movement skills needed to keep you on the hill and performing your best, day in day out.   
•    In finding practical and lasting solutions to athletic development
•    That athleticism is key to long term success…you must be a ripping athlete to ski fast
•    That a good athlete can do anything anywhere, and on any snow surface
•    That good ol’ fashioned hard work pays off in the end

 

We offer focused training blocks in both SL and GS.  The IR environment is focused, structured, challenging and encouraging.  The IR culture is based on respect, work ethic and an understanding of what it takes to be successful on the hill and most importantly in life.  We are focused on the whole athlete.


Goals

 

•    Improve Performance…increase productivity and understanding
•    Decrease injury potential…increase durability & maximize training volume  
•    Increase motivation…go all in and engage fully  
•    Develop a practical plan…develop practical & sustainable strategies for success
•    Create a balanced lifestyle…find the right life – sport balance for you
