Approach. Stance. Platform.
WCT focus's its energy on emphasizing the understanding fundamentals and the "why's" behind it. We go about our days as a whole geared toward the understanding of technique, tactics, and equipment set up +/ alignment. Giving the athlete the needed tools to take anywhere they go, to understand inherently and to decipher from themselves what other coaches maybe saying in different ways.
WC Tech believes no one component is any more important than the other(s) - just as no one part of the turn is any more important than the other(s). We believe our approach is spot on to the proper progression. Which is why we plan and offer seasonal training camps: to teach, reinforce and revisit fundamentals & concepts to give the time to engrain the movements & understanding of the sport.
You can't have a good stance on your skis if your equipment is not set up for it. Equipment setup and alignment is a massive focal point for us. Think of it this way - if we ask you to move your body into specific positions throughout a ski turn, but your equipment is hindering you, your productivity will likely be slow, frustrating, and likely unachievable. So first things first - get equipment dialed, put it on slowly to make sure things are lined up well enough to start working on fundamentals. In this order of the process we can see if it is equipment or a lack of fundementals holding you back.
The platform we work from is simple: it is understanding fundamentals completely. Understanding fundamentals is essential to go forward making the proper ski turn - turn after turn from top to bottom. This enables us to build the training progression from beginning to end seamlessly. Understand fundamentals gives you the tools in your back pocket once you leave us to go to your home programs and continue to understand what other coaches may be saying in different ways. This is also where cyclical progression design begins - starting in the Spring, working through Summer, and then through the Fall. Spring camp is geared toward getting gear for dialed in while you are just coming off your last races - and pushing intensity while still in ski shape. Summer camp is when we slow it down, hunker down, and learn the fundamentals how's and why's and get a bunch of miles dong it. Fall camp is when you learn tactical approach and up the intensity pushing for speed that's needed to win is brought in to the mix.
