U14 Racing Program

The U14’s will ski from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Some days could start earlier than 9:00 am or may go past 2:30 pm (athletes are encouraged to ski up to the last chair of the day). The athletes will ski with a team of coaches who will work with each athlete individually at different times. The U14’s will work on expanding and improving the skills that were introduced in the U12 program. The group focuses on directed and undirected free skiing sixty-five percent of the time, technical drills with and without gates thirty percent of the time, and tactical drills the remaining five percent. The program is focused on addressing all learning styles and continuing to work on strong fundamental styles.

The coaches will determine the race schedule. There will be between 4 to 10 race starts that will be at the discretion of the coaching staff. If your athlete cannot attend qualifier races, please let the coaches know. In January, the athletes will compete in 1 or 2 open races. The U14’s will race a super G. The early BWL qualifiers will be used to compete for the BWL State Finals and the BWL Championships which is scheduled in March.

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 that meet the new FIS standards denoted by the official FIS sticker found on the helmets.
