Team Hardwood National Program forms the foundation of the Team Hardwood racing team, and is geared for athletes in gr. 9 and up, who wish to commit to year round training with the ultimate goal of performing at their personal best at the Canadian National Championships.
Our goal is to help athletes improve their technique and racing skills and we aim to expose skiers to as many racing opportunities as possible in a year round program that builds skills, endurance and familiarity with what it takes to be a full-time skier. Athletes benefit from training with a group of peers who motivate and support each other.
