Canada's Premier Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined Ski Club
Just like the Olympic Motto "Citius, Altius, Fortius", the Altius Nordic Ski Club strives for its athletes to be "Faster, Higher, Stronger".
The Nordic Ski Hoppers program is geared towards “FUN and FUNDAMENTALS”. Participants are exposed to a broad range of sports and activities and cross training, including each of the Nordic disciplines. A supportive and positive environment is provided for all participants, with an emphasis on participation.
The Altius focus highlights overall physical development, enhances healthy lifestyles and leadership abilities in each participant. It also provides the base and introduces an opportunity for long-term athlete development in the sports of Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined skiing.
Jump'n Fly League Testing
Altius implements Jump 'n Fly League testing of all Hoppers athletes 4-5 times/year. There are 5 levels of testing: Level 1 - Rabbit, Level 2 - Antelope, Level 3 - Tiger, Level 4 - Seagull, Level 5 - Raven. Each level builds on the previous one to effectively develop strong skills and technique.
