The primary focus of Project Excel is on racers, who are within the high performance pathway and graduated through U21, but outside of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team.
While Project Excel is lead by ACA, its strength comes from the strong collaboration and expert guidance provided by the Provincial Ski Associations. As such, the Project Excel Working Group (see members listed below) is comprised of technical experts from across the country including both the National Ski Team and National Ski Cross Team. This Working Group has been formalized and will continue to generate new ideas, develop action plans, and consult with coaches and technical leaders from across the country moving forward.
The 2023/24 Project Excel Action Plan has four focus areas:
PROJECT EXCEL LAUNCH PRESS RELEASE – JANUARY 2024
