I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer and the amazing heat that we have been blessed with........ because the snow is just around the corner!

Registration for the 2023/24 season is finally open, YAY!!! Please register your athlete in their program for the season prior to Aug 15th. As of Aug 15th, registration will open to the public and we can not guarantee your athlete a spot.

There are a few more options/add-in's this season for the younger athletes. We were able to find two dryland trainers that work with young athletes, so we are offering dryland to the Jr. & Sr. Freestyler athletes that are interested. There is a limited number of spots, so please sign your athlete up should he or she be interested. (YAY for injury prevention)

Trampoline starts on Sept 5th. Please make sure to come into the trampoline facility on the first trampoline session with your athlete to read and sign the Code of Conduct with them.

Please note that there is a passphrase needed to register your athlete prior to Aug 15th. You can find it in the photos below with even more information.

The calendar will be updated on the website this week, so remember to check there for training times and dates. For up-to-date information on trampoline cancellations, cold weather days, airbag days, etc, you can click on the 'info for athlete' tab at the top of the main website page. There you will find a ton of information and lots of photos of your athletes training and competing.

Bingos will start again on Sept 10 and will run for the season. You can sign up for bingos on our website under the bingo fundraising tab, or on the second slide on our main page of the website. Please make sure to read about bingo and how beneficial it is for our club and all the athletes in each program. (MOM TIP - it will save you money on registration, camps and comps).

Parents, please make sure one of you purchase a volunteer membership and remember, the YFSA requires each family to volunteer for at least one major event each season. These events include: Canada Cup (Dec) or Yukon Champs (Mar).

The YFSA AGM is on Aug 29th at sport Yukon @ 7pm. If you are interested in joining the board, we are always looking for active board members.

Thanks so much and we hope to see you all again this season.

Hello YFSA Members

The season is nearing the end for 2022/23 and the snow is disappearing fast now. The athletes have grown so much in their skills as well as physically. Its hard to believe summer is just around the corner.

April 1 & 2 is the last on-snow weekend of training for the Jr. & Sr. Freestylers. Their coach for the weekend will be Steven Harlow again. He is an amazing coach and we are happy to have him back for the last weekend training.

On-Snow Training Schedule:

  • Sr. Freestylers - Saturday, April 1, 2023 10am to 4pm

  • Jr. Freestylers - Sunday, April 2, 2023 10am to 4 pm

Report cards for the athletes will be emailed out in the next 10 days. The report cards will explain what skills your athlete started to work on, but still needs to work on (learning....); what skills your athlete is doing, but needs to clean up or become more comfortable with (You did it!); and what skills your athlete is doing well and is ready to move to the next level of trick (Stomped it!). The report card will touch on skiing skills, jumping skills and terrain park skills. At the bottom of each section is where you will find the coaches comments. At the end of the report card there will be a recommendation for what program to register your athlete in next season.

Should you have any questions about your athlete and their season, please contact your coach via email or myself and I can connect you with your athletes coach.

Please, check back in on the YFSA's website in mid-May, as we will be posting our programs for next season and potential summer trampoline, airbag and dryland programs. We are hoping to open up the summer programs to the younger athletes this year (Jr. & Sr. Freestylers).

Parents, please check the 'Lost and Found' box in the Freestyle trailer this weekend for any of your athletes items. Parents and Athletes, please make sure you bring all of your skis, poles, boots and any items home with you after training this weekend, as athletes will not have acess to the trailer after training ends.

Trampoline will continue until the end of April for the Jr. & Sr. Freestylers. Trampoline and Dryland will also contiune for the Dev team until the end of April.

Thank you to all of the parents who came out last weekend and helped with Yukon Champs!!!! It was a great time and even more amazing to see how skilled our YFSA athletes are.

Great Job Athletes!!!!!!!

A big 'THANK YOU' to Mark Kelly who was out at Mt sima all weekend shooting the event. Here is a link to the photos that Mark Kelly took during the Champs. The YFSA is going to use it as fundraiser, so click on the link below and purchase your athletes photos!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone for an AWESOME Season, see you next year

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the sunshine. Just a quick email to update and inform everyone what is happening in the Yukon Freestyle world.

Congrats to all of our Dev team athletes. Great job at Canada Winter Games!!!! We are very proud of you all.

Fundamentals athletes: Awesome job skiing this season. You have all learned so much and are on the road to be amazing skiers. You should have gotten your report card on March 5th, the last day of training. We hope you had a blast with our coaches and we will see you at Yukon champs and back next season.

Jr. and Sr. Freestylers, you still have one more training weekend on-snow (April 1 & 2) with Steven Harlow (I will have this confirmed by Saturday March 18). You will receive your report cards on your last day of on-snow training. Trampoline is scheduled to continue March 27th through to April 27th, with March 29th being cancelled. Please see the calendar on the website or the photo below. We hope to see you all out at Yukon champs to showcase your new and improved ski skills and tricks.

Yukon Champs registration is now open to our current athletes. We have a slopestyle day (pokey park & lower park) and a big air day (1st medium of upper park). Yukon champs is meant for all levels (Fundamentals through to the dev team), so please sign your athlete up and come out and volunteer or watch. It's a fun weekend filled with great tricks.

NOTE: The younger athletes that don't want to hit the 1st medium for the big air are able to use the knuckle of the medium instead of the jump.

Registration is open to our current athletes from March 14th to March 24th. On March 20th, registration opens to the public. There are limited registration spots available for Yukon champs, due to the coach:athlete ratio, so please register your athlete soon. Yukon champs will have a club category for our season athletes and an open category for the public. There are lots of medals/trophies and prizes to be won!!!

Please see the attached Yukon champs poster, schedule and bio form below. Register online via the YFSA website.

Yukon Champs Registration Link:

I want to send out a huge 'THANK YOU' to all the YFSA coaches. You are all awesome and we are very grateful for teaching and leading all of our athletes.

There is some room left in the second week of spring break freestyle camps, if any of the fundamentals or Jr. Freestylers are interested in registering. Here is the link:!/events/44053-yukon-freestyle-ski-association-20222023-season

I have also included the signupgenius link for Yukon champs parent volunteer jobs. Please come out and watch our athletes throw down some great tricks.
