Home 9 Parenting a Skier


AOA will schedule U14, U16, and FIS Parent meetings throughout the season and Province to help parents understand the pathway, selections, and future opportunities including the U16, High-Performance Programs, and the Ontario Ski Team. To find out when and where these meetings are taking place please visit the AOA Events Calendar here> and be sure to subscribe to the AOA newsletter here>


The AOA parent handbook is designed to help AOA parents find basic information about AOA including who we are, what we do, important dates, and more. Also included are parenting tips such as what to say to your kids, what NOT to say, how to navigate the ride home from races, and how to reframe both winning and losing.

Clubs and coaches are encouraged to share this with their teams.
