BBSEF Person of the Week – Coach Arn Allemand

Summer break is here, and Coach Arn is ready to lead BBSEF snow-sport athletes 12 years and older through dryland training. He is a natural fit for the job, having discovered the importance of conditioning when he was a ski racer back in the day. “I credit my experience with BBSRA for my understanding of fitness,” he said.  

Arn was a Mitey Mite until age 9 and then stepped away from the program for a few years. At 16, he returned and raced through high school. “When I returned to racing, I was competing against kids who had not left and were technically more proficient than I was. The only way that I was going to get an edge was through balance and strength training. My love of fitness evolved from there.”

Drawing on his extensive knowledge of strength and conditioning, Arn will help BBSEF athletes build fitness for the competitive season ahead. His plans include four blocks of training with a different focus in each one. “We start June 12 with Skills Quest baseline assessments. Then work through a series of strength and agility drills and then work our way to sport-specific drills. Each block builds up conditioning, and we will continue until we get back on snow.”

Once the snow flies, Arn will resume coaching Mitey Mites. His wife Nikki and his two boys join him for the drives up and down the hill. Nikki is a snowboarder who shreds pretty hard. The boys rip as Mitey Mites. “It is a lot of seat time up and down the hill with the makings for some great family fun.”
