T2T & CWG

Provincial Team – T2T-CWG Programs

T2T programs are intended for those skaters who have reached physical maturity and decided they wish to pursue the sport of speed skating at a much higher level.    This program expects the incorporation of both OFF ICE as well as ON ICE training on a consistent basis, anything less and you are only fooling yourself.

Your success comes from YOU – it is built from the daily sweat, dedication & commitment that only YOU can put into YOUR GOAL(s).

YOU may want something from the sport of Speed skating!  The reality is ! With every “WANT”

  • There has to be GOALS & a PLAN laid out for achieving that want
  • There has to be action(s) aimed at achieving that “WANT”YOU HAVE TO TAKE the ownership / You have to accept the RESPONSIBILITY – NO ONE CAN HAVE SUCCESS FOR YOU!

At a PROVINCIAL LEVEL –
“IF” your Goal is to skate at National competitions against other Provincial Teams. Then your choices are clear, You must do the work required to achieve that level of Preparation in all 4 elements of sport. IF YOU DO NOT – WHERE IS YOUR RESPECT FOR YOUR OPPOSITION?  Where is your understanding of learning to be YOUR BEST?  Where is your level of COMMITMENT to YOUR GOALS?

This is where YOU have to make YOUR CHOICES and learn to accept & live with those choices !

At this stage in your development, YOU should have learned to develop a good work ethic along with a focus on developing good technical skills. Success will not always happen on a consistent basis. There will be trying times when you will need the support of others to help you through these hard times. Having set backs can be a good thing and many lessons can be learned from these opportunities. TAKE the TIME to LEARN the LESSONS.
Most people do not reach their goals, Not because they are not capable of achieving them. It is because they loose faith in themselves and give up on themselves too soon. If we truly WANT something – We have to learn how to stay focused on our goals and learn to work through the hard times.
There are plenty of good skills to be learned from defeats – but only if we look for them with a progressive & positive attitude. .
ALWAYS INCLUDE a MENTAL COMPONENT to every training session
If the focus is not POSITIVE and the training is NOT a CHALLENGE.  Then you have just wasted a practice (and your time) – Mental Skills-development Structure

Make sure you take the time to develop these skills, as much as you do the physicaL

A dream, that inspires YOUR commitment and dedication, is a worthwhile goal –

     A goal without YOUR commitment and dedication will always be just a dream
