SPEED CAMP

DETAILS

2017/2018 LRT SPEED CAMP:

Speed Camp is an optional program available to the athletes of LRT. The primary goal of the camp is to teach the fundamental skills involved with safely and confidently skiing Super G radius turns, dealing with terrain and making the best tactical decisions in a controled speed venue environment. 

Speed camp is a two day progression broken into four distinct training blocks. Since it is designed as a progression, athletes should attend both days to get the most from  the experience. A guiding axiom of the experience is to emphasize SAFETY and teach the athletes how to get the most out of SG opportunities. Speed Camp is not just about going fast, it's about learning to be more confident and handling a larger radius turn at higher speed. We make the progressions fun and safe but challenging enough to offer a great confidence boost to our athletes post camp. Speed Camp is calendared to get our kids as confident as possible prior to the beginning of any Divisional Qualifying events.
