Resources for parents regarding alpine skiing in the Outaouais region
Athletes enter into the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) system of development and monitoring once they join their local ski club. Each club is mandated both by ACA (Alpine Canada)/PSO (Provincial Sports Organization: Ski Quebec Alpin) and their regional Zone to follow a specific athlete development model to assist and promote skill development of the individual. It is the objective of each organization to direct the coaches and programs (clubs) to follow a prescribed program and development system. The OSZ (Outaouais Ski Zone) within our development system works closely with each club to ensure that the offering of each club matches with the LTAD.
Athlete Development Pathway
The athlete development pathway provides parents/athletes with a quick reference and links to key information related to the general specifics regarding progression of ski racing through age groups.
