Fortune Freestyle has two D-team disciplines; slopestyle and moguls. Athletes can try-out for both disciplines, or may choose just one if they prefer!

When:
Try-outs for athletes new to Fortune Freestyle or for those who missed the D-team assessments in the spring are Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Athletes must attend both days of the evaluations try-outs. If an athlete is unable to attend try-outs, they must contact Don Lewis (don.lewis@ucdsb.on.ca). Efforts will be made to accommodate, however, there is no guarantee the athlete will be considered.

 

How:
Athletes who wish to try-out must send a brief bio (about one paragraph) to Don Lewis (don.lewis@ucdsb.on.ca) indicating why they believe they should be considered for the DTEAM. Write-ups should describe their commitment/passion for the sport and include training experience (in the sport and across disciplines), and demonstration of their commitment and desire to continue to learn and improve in the sport of freestyle. Write ups must be sent by December 1st so we can confirm numbers for the assessment days.

Prerequisites:
Athletes trying out for D-TEAM must be registered in both days (Saturday and Sunday) of the program.  They must also commit to attending two Timber Tour events.

Assets:
•    Registered for dryland
•    Registered for trampoline

Prerequisites:
Athletes trying out for D-TEAM must be registered in both days (Saturday and Sunday) of the program. They must also commit to attending two Timber Tour events.

 

Base D-team Cost:
Try-out Cost: $55 - *fee covers costs of hiring coaches for the assessment days on Dec 15-16 (Cost recovery only). Please note that the board has decided to keep fees for the winter programs as low as possible and to ensure that any additional fees associated with specialized training (such as D-TEAM)
are recovered from the participants benefitting from the programs.

D-team athletes are required to register for both days of regular programming and are strongly recommended to register for both Christmas camps. To register for the coming ski season, please go to the registration page at Fortune Freestyle. Early Bird rates will be in effect until December 8.

Additional costs for attending Timber Tours competitions include registration, lift tickets (usually discounted), travel and accommodations and are the responsibility of the athlete/family. Costs for coaching outside the regular program days (including coach travel expenses) are shared by all athletes participating and will be calculated and collected on an event-by-event basis. While it is difficult to predict the exact additional costs, a family should budget $600.00 to $1,000 per athlete. *A parent meeting will be scheduled once the d-team is estalished to review additional training and travel.
