The 2023 training program is created to align with TSRC’s role in the Alpine pathway, Snow Australia’s (SA) Alpine Roadmap and the Kosciuszko Thredbo (KT) requirement for TSRC to be a performance orientated club.
TSRC accommodates skiers from U12 through to FIS level and all TSRC training programs are created and supervised by our Program Director.
All TRSC athletes need the appropriate SA membership (covers insurance) and a Thredbo winter season pass that allows access to the Thredbo Leisure Centre.
This program is a continuation from the younger age groups with fundamental skill development remaining the main focus. In order to achieve this there will still be a large proportion of technical free skiing, skills and drills both in and out of the brush and gate environment. The program will follow a structured seasonal progression in order to allow athletes a step-by-step approach.
The program will begin with fundamental skill development and step through to an end of season focus on race simulation leading into the Snow Australia National Children’s Championships. The program requires consistent attendance, discipline and focus, as well as a high level of fitness.
When athletes are on the hill in the early mornings it is imperative they obey their coaches’ directions. There may be snow cats grooming ski runs using a winch cable. It is extremely dangerous for athletes to ski on any run that is not allocated for training on that day. To do so will result in passes being pulled and may result in entire groups or even the Club being unable to participate in early morning training sessions.
