|This group of athletes and coaches have been selected to represent WinSport in its official inaugural season. The athletes have been put together to share one common interest - the pursuit of excellence in slopestyle and halfpipe skiing and snowboarding. Athletes and coaches are from across the country and are selected based on coach discretion, interview and selection process.
WinSport has developed strong relationships with our national organizations in freestyle sports. With this connection established, our mandate is to provide an exceptional level of programming never done before in these sports. Our coaching staff is a very powerful group with skiing/snowboarding knowledge and experience.
Combined with the Academy staff, this is an exceptional collaboration of sport professionals. The coaches will guide each athlete along their path every step of the way to bring out their passion, talent and develop them into pure athletes.
These groups are training year-round at WinSport, utilizing airbag, trampoline training, video, dryland and technical, with the advantage of having a full-time, year-round coach on hand at all times. Academy programs will also include services provided by the Canadian Sport Centre Calgary (CSCC), which offers performance services such as sport psychology, exercise physiology, sport medicine and nutrition to Canada's top athletes. The partnership between WinSport and CSCC will aid the Academy coaches in helping their athletes achieve his or her peak potential.
