Sept 19th 2016
Over 50 Young Skiers from the Okanagan, Salmon Arm, Revelstoke and Kamloops/Sunpeaks joined us in Kelowna for our Teck Regional Dry-land Training Camp this past weekend. Camp participants had a full plate with activities including Icebreaker Games, Orienteering, Morning activation, skate roller skiing with technique work, Optional 1 km uphill time trial, Hill Bounding Technique, Volley Ball Tournament, Endurance Run and a Team Adventure Challenge. The Team Adventure Challenge included Stations with a strength element and a fun challenge. Fun Challenges included Agility, Balloon Caterpillar, Synchronised Dancing, Log Rolling, “Bananas” and Flash Mob Practise. The Flash Mob and the Synchronised dances are in the video below.
Participants also had presentations on Recovery and Nutrition from Chris Manhard (BC Team Head Coach) and Paul Shipley (T2T Coach and UBCO Professor).
Despite the fact that the camp was located in a paradise known as Kelowna we did in fact see some rain over the weekend. But no Rain could Dampen the spirits of these keen camp participants. I big thank you to Teck for the new shirts and all of the Coaches and Cooks who helped make this Camp a Huge Success.

NEW Frequently asked Questions at the bottom of this page.
When a question is asked I will add the answer to the bottom of this page.
Can I Help or Help Coach? Yes, we always need help. This is the information on the Mandatory Standards for Coaching: With regards to your Teck Regional Dryland and Snow Camps, this is a friendly reminder to familiarize yourself with CCBC’s minimum mandatory coach qualification policy. Coaches leading/supervising the camp or leading a group of athletes at the camp must be NCCP L2T ‘trained’ (must have completed the L2T (On-Snow) Workshop), while coaches that are assisting must be NCCP Community Coach ‘trained’ (must have completed the Community Coach Workshop).

“Sammy G”. doesn’t roller ski much (twice ever so far). Do you think the camp would be good for “Sammy G.” too or should I wait another year for camps for him? For the Roller skiing portion on Saturday we just do an introductory to roller skiing for those who are younger and inexperienced in a parking lot and car free paved path. If they are reasonably good skiers they usually excel in this setting. Also, if you do not have roller skis all of the clubs bring their team skis so that skiers can try roller skiing; there will be enough skis if you cannot find some to bring. I think that “Sammy G.” will be fine.
