U7 Program – 6 Year Olds Only (born 2011)
Program Starts Saturday Jan 13 meet at club at 8:30am

Lead Coach Tracy Julius

This part-time (half day) program is designed for little brothers and sisters of current Club members to prepare them for the traditional weekend Club program. We will accept children who don’t have siblings in the Club with the approval of the Head U7 coach. Our youngest athletes’ first experience in the Club will provide an introduction to the FUN of skiing, basic skiing skills and build a foundation for future racing techniques. Participants must be able to put on their own ski equipment, load and ride the lift, work within a group structure and ski at an intermediate level. Participants will not race within the NVC races but will have the opportunity to participate in intra-Club races. Participants need to join United States Ski and Snowboard (USSA) at www.ussa.org but are not required to join VARA.

 

Training sessions will be Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM January 6 through March 3.
