The Train to Train Para Team is designed to further develop good training habits on and off the snow. On snow, the primary focus is to develop strong technical and tactical riding skills. Competitions are used as a measure of an athlete’s skill development. Off snow, athletes will be introduced to a winter maintenance strength and conditioning program and will utilize a custom online logbook to monitor training and recovery. T2T athletes will also participant in a mental skills assessment and analysis to begin developing mental toughness.
Typically, athletes will spend 2-3 years in this stage and progressively increase the number of training days from 32 to 45 to 60 each year. This allows for athletes to gain skills and experience success training and competing provincially before travelling further for camps and bigger events.
