U14 Racing Program

The U14’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 coaches will assist in special training sessions. 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 65% of the time, technical drills with and without gates 30% of the time, and tactical drills the remaining 5%.

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. In February, the U14’s will race in a super G, the early BWL qualifiers to try to qualify 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.
