PROGRAMMING

Comprised of 8-9 year-old athletes for U10 and 10-11 year old athletes for U12. This program is designed to teach fundamental skiing skills and ski racing technique to young athletes. Emphasis is placed on free skiing in all snow and terrain at Snowbasin while practicing balance, edging, body position and other essential technical elements. Racing emphasis will be predominantly on modern giant slalom and slalom technique. The emphasis, as always, will be on having fun! For training purposes athletes will usually be arranged in groups of approximately 5-7 athletes per coach to facilitate a productive learning environment. Groups are dynamic but are generally based on skill, speed, and social needs.

Skill Development Focus

All-Mountain Safety: developing a consistent balanced athletic position on skis, proper weight distribution on skis, a consistent stance while maintaining balanced athletic position on skis. Athletes also learn timing, balance, upper body discipline and upper-lower body separation, upper body stability through the use of a single pole plant; and tactical elements of a giant slalom & slalom courses.

WE WANT YOU!

The Snowbasin Sport Education Foundation  is committed to a culture of family participation, team building, social gatherings while supporting our youth through winter sport development.

There will be many opportunities for parents to be involved with events and competitions (especially to work off your work deposit obligation).  We need help with races, freeride competitions, club fundraisers and individual team  activities such as coordination of team tents at races etc.

On the Calendar, our Ski & Snowboard Swap will be held October 28-30 and will be the first big event for the team! Sign ups to help are coming soon!

Following the Swap, the “Winter Welcome” will make it’s way back on the calendar after a year of COVID, and if you want to have a ton of fun, this event is for you!

We look forward to meeting all of you and hope you will join our Club!
