Fall Fitness testing #1

The first fall fitness testing takes place on

September 8th, 2019

Location: Mickey McDougall gym, 23rd street, North Vancouver

Time: 8.50 am - 12.30 pm

Start time per group:

  • VST/U16: 8.15 am
  • U14:         9.00 am (2006, 2007)
  • U12:        10.00 am (2008-2009)
  • U10/8:     10.45 am (born 2010 younger)

Please, make sure you arrive on time at your specified starting time as this event will be very busy. Siblings can come together. We will NOT be able to do testing if you arrive past 10.45 am. This test will be a FULL test and will show how much the athletes have improved since the last full testing in spring.

  • height (stand, sit), weight (in KG and CM!!!)
  • long jump
  • penta jump
  • T-test
  • box jump
  • push-ups
  • beep test

These tests evaluate athletic abilities that are the key to becoming a successful ski racer. After at least 6 months of dryland and other sports, these tests should have improved.

Things to consider:

  • bring water,
  • bring proper runners with good sole (NO boarder shoes)
  • ALWAYS warm up at least 10 minutes beforehand (there is always a coach designated to do warm-up with the kids, so look out for him and ask when you cannot find anyone). Lack of warm-up will lead to a distortion of test results as the body cannot perform in a cold state. Also injuries can happen when the body is not properly warmed up.
  • You will get the paper copy to fill in the test results from a volunteer AFTER you have warmed-up

We always need parent volunteers for sign-in- Please contact Tamara at
See you then.
