2 Day Race Team

Age for 2016-17 Winter Season

Born 2003-2009
 
Comprised of 7-13 year old athletes. All the same great skiing, mountain skills, and racing fundamentals emphasized in all the Alpine Programs in a 2 day a week program. The 2 Day Race Program will include Saturdays at JHMR and Wednesday afternoon/evening training at Snow King. Emphasis is placed on all-around skiing fundamentals but with an introduction to racing and Giant Slalom technique and tactics. Athletes are arranged in groups based on skill, speed and social needs. Participants must be able to put on their own ski equipment, load and ride the lift alone, and ski at an intermediate level, at Snow King and JHMR.
Athlete to Coach Ratio: 7:1
 

Skill Development Focus

All-Mountain Safety; Learning a basic balanced athletic position on skis; distributing weight evenly between both skis; upper body discipline and/or upper-lower body separation; having a consistent stance while maintaining a balanced athletic position on skis; and an introduction to the basic tactical elements of racing.
