U16 Program: Ages 14-15 (born 2002-2003) (limit 6 athletes)

The U16 Program involves free skiing and racers will follow a technical development progression working on balance, edging and body position. At this level the emphasis is on the technical and tactical aspects of ski racing. Groups split their time between all-mountain skiing, technical drills, gate training, goal setting, speed event skiing (super-g), and, as always, having fun!

Training begins December 2, 2017 with Holiday camps held during Christmas and February breaks Training sessions begin at 8:30am – 2:30pm. Racers compete in the Northern VT Council, at the state level  (VT State Champs), and the regional level U16 Championships. Racers must qualify for State and Regional races.

 

All U16 participants must be members of VARA (Vermont Alpine Racing Association) and USS (United States Ski and Snowbard).  VARA uses the same online registration organization as we do, Admin Sports, so you can use the same login info to access your vara membership Applications may be found at the ski club or at http://www.vara.org and www.ussa.org. Participants must complete USS registration prior to registering with the Club at www.ussa.org.  All athletes are required by our insurance carrier to have a current USSA license.
