Alpine U10 Full-Time Age Class | YOB 2012-2014

This program aims to create a fun, team environment that will encourage learning and skills development, instilling passion for the sport and motivation to compete.

Coaches will follow an age-appropriate skills progression utilizing SSCV’s Technical Statement in concert with a host of additional skill-building progressions while providing a foundation in gate training. The goal is for children to have fun learning to go fast in gates while building the necessary basic fundamentals that will prepare them for a future in ski racing and skiing in general.

The U10 full-time program provides the opportunity for more quality time on snow at an extremely formative period in their physical development which enables a rapid progression in their skill development in a fun, confidence-building environment.  World class coaching and training environments enrich this experience, creating a streamlined pipeline to U12 full-time age class training and competition opportunities as they advance.

A USSA U10 membership will be required for these athletes to race.  This will allow them to participate in the age class RMD race series.
