The Husky Snow Stars is a skill development tool for young skiers.
This seven-step program will guide the child, coach, and parent through a progression that is aligned with the Long Term Athlete Development Plan (AIM 2 WIN).
Optimal motor skill development takes place primarily between the ages of 5 to 12. For this reason the program is aimed generally at young skiers from Entry level to the end of K1. Husky Snow Stars provides clubs and coaches guidance through the early “Windows of Trainability” where it is critical to carry out the “Right Athletic Development at the Right Time”.
The goal of Husky Snow Stars is to provide a solid foundation and knowledge base – physical, technical, tactical and mental – upon which to build children’s athletic abilities.
Husky Snow Stars encourages the development of skiers and ski racers of all ability levels. It also encourages children to discover a pathway to the joy of skiing, competition and excellence in a fun and rewarding environment.
Enthusiastic and well-prepared coaches and participants play an integral role in the success of the program.
