U21 Racing Program

U21 RacingU21’s will ski all day (9:00 am – 2:30 pm). The athlete will ski with a team of coaches who will work with each athlete individually at different times. The U21 and the U18 group will train and travel to race events whenever possible. This group will place a strong emphasis on directed free skiing as well as many technical and tactical drills throughout the season. They will also use video analysis. Perfection of basic skills will continue to be emphasized. The goal is that all athletes compete in all disciplines as much as the schedule allows.

Each athlete will be involved in either the Macomber or Tecnica Cup Race Series. The Macomber Race series has a maximum point cut off to qualify. The availability of coaches and number of athletes attending each race will determine the race schedule and coaching support for events. If your athlete cannot attend a scheduled race, it is the parent/athlete’s responsibility to notify the coach as soon as possible.

All athletes are required to be members of both USSA and NHARA, (our state racing organization). Mount Sunapee and USSA require that all athletes wear helmets with hard earflaps.

A provisional FIS license or full FIS license should be considered on a case-by-case basis. FIS races require qualifying for the state quota or development quota for each year of birth. FIS racing requires missing school and it is based on results.
