You should be able to have a basic level of competence, ski black alpine runs unassisted and have performed some kind of regular indoor / outdoor artificial race gate training sessions. Camps are demanding so you should be able to cope on your own. We will give extra training and help with ski preparation.
How good you are already is not critical to us. What we want is to see commitment and determination to improve. We respect and value athletes who give of their best whatever level they are working at. We know the commitment and sacrifices that families make to ensure that the young racer gets these opportunities.
The programmes are designed to cater for
• The Talented Athlete – It has been shown that with this type of programme it is possible to develop to the highest level however it does need careful programming and determination to succeed.
• The Improving Athlete – has some experience of alpine racing, really enthusiastic, loves skiing and racing and wants to see how far they can progress.
• The Developing Athlete – has loved the experience gained at UK facilities but wants to gain mountain snow experience and to gain a firm technical basis in order to move on to FIS alpine ski racing.
