BSK Vision & Goals Visjon • BSK Alpint – en ledende alpinklubb – der løperne trives – utvikler seg – og yter! Goals: • BSK’s alpinvirksomhet er primært rettet inn mot barn og ungdom som ønsker å drive alpin skikjøring som konkurranseidrett. Innunder dette er BSK’s målsetning: • Gi et bredt tilbud om alpin skikjøring til barn og ungdom som dekker alle nivåer. • Fremstå som attraktiv for alle som ønsker å satse på alpint. • Utvikle løpere som er blant landets beste i alle aldersklasser over 12 år, samt være representert på Norges ulike representasjons/landslag. • Klubben skal tiltrekkes seg og utvikle trenere med høy kompetanse. • Det skal skapes et sunt og godt miljø hvor løpere, foreldre og trenere trives og ønsker å bruke fritiden sin. • Klubben skal bidra til et godt og konstruktivt samarbeid med andre alpinklubber. Sportslig opplegg • BSK skal ha et tilbud som omfatter et bredt spekter av ferdighetsnivåer og alderstrinn. Vårt sportlige opplegg omfatter alt fra skiskole til et omfattende treningsprogram rettet mot de som drømmer om å bli toppalpinist. Sentralt i det vi gjør er å skape skiglede, vennskap og entusiasme.

Sportsmanship in BSK • Sportsmanship is defined as: • Playing fair • Following the rules of the game • Respecting the judgment of referees and officials • Treating opponents with respect • Some people define good sportsmanship as the "golden rule" of sports — in other words, treating the people you ski with and against as you'd like to be treated yourself! • You demonstrate good sportsmanship when you show respect for yourself, your teammates, and your opponents, for the coaches on both sides, and for the referees, judges, and other officials. • Parents also need to be aware of how they behave during training and competition. Sportsmanship is a style and an attitude, and it can have a positive influence on everyone around you.
BSK’s philosophy on overall skiing skills • Ski in all conditions: • Soft and hard snow • Groomed and off piste • Cold snow and spring snow • All weather conditions • Ski all events • Slalom • GS • Super G • Downhill • Twin tip • Versatile on skis
BSK Sports Plan • Kick off, pizza nights after ski training, season ending

SG program for HL • For safety reasons, speed training is only carried out at official BSK speed camps • Natural in-course progression is from “cautious “to “aggressive” • Jump training and free skiing will be offered when possible • Due to the challenges of executing quality speed training, BSK almost always offer speed camps for HL, TL , 11 and 12 year old groups together • At specific times, BSK will train speed with other clubs • The amount of SG training is not based on individual results from the BSK ski evaluation 8 years and younger 9 years 10 years 11 years Pre-TL (12 years) TL (13 and 14 years) HL (15 and 16 years) NOTE: Drills are performed in and outside of training courses.
BSK’s policy • Ski camps: • No ski camps at glaciers in Central Europe before TL • 11 year olds and Pre-TL groups has one 3-day camp indoors during September • A limited number of ski camps on school days from Pre-TL and up. Number of days increase as they get older. • When possible, two offers will be offered (weekend/vacation days only and full camp) • Mandatory study session on all “school day camps” • No-alcohol policy (before children are in their rooms for the night) • Training: • Only BSK coaches coach athletes on the hill. Exceptions: • When coaches ask parents to coach • When parents coach their own children on the ski hill, BSK trainers will not coach the child. This is very confusing for the child. • General: • Show up on time for training and camps • Sign up on time for camps • Bring relevant equipment to all trainings • Skiers without proper speed safety equipment are not allowed to train speed • Communicate with the coaches regarding ski equipment needs • Prioritize participation in BSK and local races

Philosophy behind BSK’s offering • The offering is developed in order to meet BSK’s goals: • Training for children and teenagers at all levels • Attractive program for those who want to succeed in alpine skiing • “Produce” top level skiers • Positive environment for athletes, coaches and parents • Athletes are not expected to participate in all offered training or camps, or to compete in all races where the coach is present • Parents are encouraged to communicate with coaches regarding each individual child’s level of participation • BSK encourages athletes to participate in more than one sport • BSK encourages athletes to select alpine skiing as their number 1 winter sport by the age they enter TL. Participation in other sports, especially summer sports, is encouraged. • Creating good groups is a key success factor: • It should be fun to ski. Skiers who have fun, ski more often, and become better skiers. • Everyone is included in the group, regardless of ability and level of participation at camps and races • Integration between groups is critical to the continued success of the program • Joint camps with other groups inspire and motivate
