 Coach Development - Online Opportunities

Freestyle BC STRONGLY encourages all coaches to complete: The Freestyle BC Coach Development Committee has been working closely with Freestyle Canada, the CAC and the NCCP to revisit our coach pathway, build mentorship opportunities, audit our existing coaches' certifications and design a calendar the compliments the shared needs of the athletes, coaches, and the clubs.  If your club or coaches would like to review your coaches' certifications listed in the locker, please reach out to info@freestylebc.ski.  Our goal is to have 100% accuracy for our coaches to help us predict and support the needs of our coach, and ultimately athlete development. 
BC Team Update

A great big congratulations to Dillan Glennie for being recently named to the Canadian NextGen Halfpipe team. Dillan grew up skiing at Mt. Washington, has been a great mentor to all athletes in BC, earned a medal at the Canada Winter Games, been on the NorAm podium multiple times and competed at the Calgary World Cup Halfpipe Rodeo. Over the past two seasons, we have seen a significant rebuild of our programs and it is great to see the effect of the combined efforts of athletes, coaches and support staff.    The balance of the Park and Pipe team will be training in Whistler, Oliver and Maximize this summer.  Get to know our Park team here.

It has been a long-time coming but the BC Mogul Team is back in action!
 
Looking back to the spring, the team spent much of our time restricted to at-home training, coming in the form of home workouts, trampoline and athlete education. A massive shoutout to our support staff at the Canadian Sports Institute for providing us with high-quality strength & conditioning, sports nutrition and mental performance resources to help our athletes advance their skills and abilities despite the challenging times. 

After a long period of at-home training, we received official clearance to resume training and began trampoline in mid-June. While we were limited to strictly trampoline for in-person training, it proved to be extremely productive with our athletes making leaps and bounds in their acrobatic ability. 

We have now been able to take advantage of water ramp training over the past few weeks at the beautiful & productive facility in Oliver. This was the perfect re-introduction to jump training with our athletes seeing huge pay-off from their hard work during the at-home preparation phase and large amounts of trampoline training. Everyone is off to a hot start with big improvements in overall skills and many progressing to bigger and better tricks!  Get to know our Mogul team here.

Our coaches and staff would like to acknowledge the massive amounts of support we've received from everyone involved with the program through this incredibly unique and challenging off-season. From our leadership at Freestyle BC, Freestyle Canada and Canadian Sports Institute, to our direct membership in our athletes and their families. We would not have been able to excel without their perseverance and dedication.

Thank you!! 
Capital Project Fund

First of all a big thanks to the 5 clubs who submitted for the Capital Projects Fund.  The enthusiasm across the province is palatable and so is the desire to bolster our sports community.  It was a beautiful process to watch the clubs build their case, and witness the diligence of our sub-committee and the board of directors as they reviewed the applicants with a pragmatic and objective lens, based upon our 4 strategic pillars and criterium.

Freestyle BC is thrilled to announce our support for the Apex Mogul Venue and Whistler's NTC
