Welcome to the NEW Freestyle Canada Fundamentalz program.
This is a transition year to the new branding of the widely successful Jumps and Bumps program. FUNdamentalz is a Freestyle Canada grassroots developmental program, which focuses on allowing athletes to develop their basic freestyle ski skills. It also provides kids with the opportunities to learn and develop their all around ski skills, which are necessary for navigating runs on their own.
The skill range is from skiers who can load a T-bar or chairlift unassisted (mostly) AND ski parallel on a green run, up to advanced parallel skiers.
FUNdamentalz Jumps & Bumps is a ½ day or 1-day session and runs for 11 weeks.
½ DAY only available Saturday Mornings.
1-day sessions are available Saturday OR Sunday.
Our coaches are trained & passionate about developing well-rounded, confident skiers. Our goal is to show kids their potential and kindle a passion for the sport of freestyle skiing. Along with developing freestyle ski skills, athletes also learn to respect the terrain on which they train and the etiquette required when skiing.
All skiers will be grouped based on both skill level and which friends they would like to ski with. Freestyle Apex also recommends that participants play many sports like (but not limited to) gymnastics, soccer, martial arts, biking and especially trampoline!
