CCBC Racing Rocks! Program12 BC clubs hosted a Racing Rocks! Event During the 2015-16 season. 1406 children participated. See attached notice for more information.
Racing Rocks! events are loads of fun, and help introduce elementray school-age children to the excitement and satisfaction of competitive skiing.
- Ski Tournaments: this is a day of activities that includes a ‘Mad Dash’, Terrain Park Relay, and games. CCBC-endorsed events will receive a free incentive (temporary tattoo) for each participant.
- Team Sprints: a team sprint is a two-person relay. The first skiers on each team start together and race the sprint course, then hand off to their teammates, who also ski the course. The second skiers then hand off to the first skiers who ski the course again. This is the event in which Devon Kershaw and Alex Harvey won a gold medal for Canada at the 2011 World Championships, and Sara Renner and Beckie Scott won a silver medal at the 2006 Olympics. CCBC approved events will receive a free incentive (temporary tattoo) for all participants.
- Double Cross: this is an extreme cross country event designed to enable skiers to apply their skills to challenging terrain in an environment of adventure and intri-group competition. CCBC approved events will receive a free incentive (temporary tattoo) for all participants.
The Racing Rocks! initiatives are coordinated with the Track Attack program and all three of the events listed above can be used by skiers to earn Track Attack stickers.
