We seek to create a strong team atmosphere so athletes feel supported as they stretch their comfort zones. The ultimate goal of the program is to teach resilient athletes who are passionate about learning how to excel in order to achieve their alpine racing aspirations.

A USSA U12 competitor membership will be required for U12s to race. This will allow them to enter RMD races. Informational meetings will be conducted prior to the first meeting day for parents to meet staff, learn the training and race calendar, and understand details of their child’s program.
