We know that ski racing calls for a range of physical and mental strengths. Physical in terms of technical skills, strength and stamina and the mental skills of motivation, determination, risk taking and tenacity.
In order to develop these skills in our athletes we base our programmes on criteria which recognize their development level, which may be related more to strength and size as much as their chronological age. We want to help develop a strong sense of self belief which is based on having the confidence to set realistic and achievable goals and to develop a positive attitude to wining and losing.
We offer age relevant training. Although the athletes will be based in the same place, FIS U18 & U21 will train separately to the U16, U14, and U12 groups. This is important, as the needs and equipment regulations of the older athletes are different.
