Hard eared Helmets are mandatory in all racing programs.
Welcome to the BVSC Ski Racing Programs. With something for all ages from Under 10 to Under 100, we’ve got you covered! With early season camps, dryland fitness opportunities, and a comprehensive in season training schedule, our programs promote skill development and a passion for the sport.
BVSC’s racing programs offer two streams catering to various levels of commitment. Our O-Cup stream offers an all inclusive approach to training and racing, guaranteeing as much possible time on snow while balancing school and other commitments. Athletes in this stream will compete in the O-Cup series for each age group. These Programs are geared towards athletes and parents interested in extending the ski racing season and seeking a diverse range of competitive experiences. The season for this stream kicks off early in the winter with the preseason camp and lasts until Spring, with many different racing and training options throughout.
Race Entry Fees & AOA Levee Fee’s will be in addition to your Program Fees approximately $400.00
Our SOD stream runs for the more traditional 9 weeks starting Dec 28-31, Jan 3-5 & Weekends Starting Jan 7-Mar 5. While these athletes are encouraged to participate on as many Fridays and attend out of season camps, programs are based on ‘weekend’ attendance. Participants in this stream will compete in the SOD series for each age group. This series offers 5 races of different disciplines and the opportunity for athletes to score as an individual.

A bit about the schedule…
The race schedule is determined by Alpine Ontario (AOA) and is issued early in the New Year. Athletes race on several weekends during the season. Not all races are in the escarpment area. The commitment to ski racing will involve some early morning winter driving.
The racing program depends on volunteers. Team managers are required for each level of league racing. Managers keep teams organized, help coordinate rides to away races and communicating with other parents. Beaver Valley Ski Club’s competitive programs also host a fund-raising gala and auction which requires a number of volunteers to operate smoothly. Parent volunteers help host a racing banquet at the end of the season and a ski swap in the fall. At each race, volunteers are required to fill certain roles, such as gate-keeping, course maintenance, running jackets and officiating. Refer to your parents’ package for official’s certification dates and times.If you are enrolling your child in racing,please consider your role as a volunteer. All parents are strongly encouraged to become involved. Parents are also encouraged to participate in an official’s certification program so that they are able to understand race formats, rules and volunteer at events. Upon registration you will receive your parents’ package with more information.
