Goal: The GFF High Performance dryland camps will work to introduce athletes to the pathway to the BC Ski Team and the level of hard work and commitment required to get there! This will include building upon the athlete’s efforts, passion, and development level throughout each camp.

Registration and Payment Information

Deadline: please register by Sunday, August 1st, 2021

Note: Athletes are allowed to register for Camp #2 even if they did not attend Camp #1

***Our camps will follow all Provincial Health Guidelines and will monitor the air quality due to wild fires. If conditions or the environment are not safe we will postpone the camp and communicate this as early as possible***

These dryland camps will provide assessment opportunities for both the athlete and BC Ski Team staff to highlight a “BC Alpine Training Group” for the 2021-2022 GFF HP On-Snow camps (#3 and #4)

"BC Alpine is working hard to address the gender inequity within our sport, especially at the high-performance level. The Girls Fast Forward High Performance 2021/2022 programming is one step we are taking to close the gender gap and re-establish a pathway to our Provincial teams for our female athlete membership at the FIS level. Visibility is important and athlete's must be able to see what they can be! We understand that calendars and planning dates can be challenging at this time, and that is why we are providing 2 dryland opportunities, one in June and one in August, to allow flexibility among student-athletes. Athletes that participate in 1 or 2 camps will be considered for future training opportunities. We are excited for this group to come together with the BC Ski Team coaches, to work hard, learn a lot and see the future possibilities for themselves in the sport."
