Both Katrina and Jaime, alongside all coaches of this program, believe the competition pathway can be an incredible avenue for one to grow and learn, if high-quality mentorship and development, tailored to the needs and specifications of each athlete is at the forefront of programming.

This program brings together riders spanning Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton and involves monthly training camps that explore skill development, mental strength techniques and competitive strategy coaching, alongside workshops that delve into different topics such as goal setting, nutrition and injury prevention. As well, all youth will be set up for individual check-ins that are tailored to each athlete's goals and objectives, offering riders an opportunity to be involved in planning their future path of growth and development.
