AIM 2 WIN – a long-term skier development plan 

Who: Canada’s ski racing community

What: Alpine Canada aims to ensure that any child entering the alpine ski racing system is provided with the necessary building blocks to reach the highest level of achievement in our sport.

The AIM 2 WIN guide was developed by Alpine Canada as a long-term skier development plan for coaches, managers, administrators, parents, teachers and volunteers. The plan breaks down development into seven stages and provides training strategies and progressions for future elite athletes. AIM 2 WIN should be used by all clubs across the country as a pathway to success for young skiers.

Although the primary objective of AIM 2 WIN is to produce greater numbers of Canadian World Cup and Olympic medallists in ski racing, it also provides a platform for clubs and coaches to encourage and support participants at every level to fulfil their potential and maintain a lifelong involvement in alpine skiing.

The seven phases of development: 

  1. Gliding Start
  2. Skier Essentials
  3. Learn to Train
  4. Learn to Race
  5. Train to Race
  6. Train to Win
  7. Skiing For Life

Why AIM 2 WIN?
In 1999, Alpine Canada produced an Alpine Integration Model known as AIM. AIM became a well-known term in the ski racing community, which is why this latest long-term skier development plan is called AIM 2 WIN. The program is a progression from the original AIM document because it provides greater detail in each development phase.

For more information on implementing AIM 2 WIN, visit the Canadian Ski Coaches’ Federation website.
