Girlstylerz caters to athletes who identify as female and
can operate either as a part of Fundamentalz and Freestylerz or parallel to these,
as a separate program. This should be based on the individual club’s capacity,
philosophy and goals. It focuses on all freestyle disciplines - technical skiing,
moguls, slopestyle, half pipe and big air – and participants should be provided with
an introduction to competition at regional and provincial level events. The program
should also focus on offering a safe and accessible introduction for girls to
off-season training opportunities including water ramp, air bag, trampoline and
dryland training. Upon entering the program, participants should already be strong
intermediate skiers who can ski parallel on a blue run, load/unload the ski lift
independently and manage their own equipment.
The essence of the Girlstylerz program and what makes it an exceptional experience
for young female athletes, is the opportunity to participate in the various
Girlstylerz workshops. These workshops have been developed by educators and are
catered and adapted to each group by the coach. They include valuable themes that
support holistic athlete development including goal-setting, fear management,
visualization and team dynamic strategies.
We offer athletes who identify as female the opportunity to participate and
progress in the sport of freestyle skiing in a fun, safe and positive environment.
To elevate and empower female athletes through the sport of Freestyle
Skiing and to be a leader in program development within Freestyle Canada.
