Freeski - Progression Plus
The Progression PLUS training schedule is designed for skiers who wish to focus on competitive Freeskiing in any variety of the disciplines. The goal of the Progression PLUS training schedule is to provide a dedicated, creative training regimen for motivated athletes who want increased training hours per week. The Progression PLUS schedule will help athletes expand upon existing abilities and prepare them for the Competition training schedule. Fall training is a crucial component.
This program is designed for athletes in Phase 3 - 4 of development. The Progression Plus Team has a multi-tiered focus. Athletes will be refining fundamentals in order to ride the entire mountain and tackle steeps, natural jumps, cliff drops, and man-made features in all conditions. Technical proficiencies and skill assessments will be a regular component of the training.
Athletes will use trampolines to learn aerial maneuvers. Eventually, these maneuvers will be brought to the snow and used in competition.
On snow, training will be strength and endurance-based with a focus on regularly skiing/riding 15,000+ vertical feet per day.
