2020 FREESTYLE SKIING CAMPS

 

2020 FREESKI WINTER CAMP 

 

MARCH 9-13, 2020

SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN, MAINE

Join CVA's Freeski coach, Casey Davis, at this season's Freeski Winter Camp. Athletes will work on rotations in the air, proper takeoffs on jumps, and have fun exploring their ability on rails to develop new tricks. Time will be dedicated to work on the trampolines, where campers will have the opportunity to develop new rotations and tricks in the air. 

This camp is an excellent opportunity to gain extra training with our full time CVA coach. The objective and philosophy of this winter camp is to act as a bridge for skiers who wish to transition from our CVA Weekend Program to our Academy. For athletes who do not participate in our weekend program, or who are not familiar with CVA, this camp acts as a great introduction to the Big Dog Community.

Athletes should bring their school work during the monitored study hall. They will have time to work on assignments during CVA’s academic time, working independently on their homework from their public school.
