Training Only (All Ages)
All age groups and high school trainers
Focus: Varies from Skill Acquisition to Skill Mastery
The Training Only program is designed to provide extra training to athletes looking to improve their ski racing skills or families looking to offer a young skier advanced development and High School racers at a reasonable cost. Train with the USSA racers, receive coaching from USSA certified coaches, and develop into a faster ski racer.
Work on balance, coordination, movement, and athletic stance on skis. The goal is that athletes can ski USSA-level courses with good technique. Athletes should be mastering carving, using upper and lower body separation, using all four edges, cross blocking, maintaining snow contact, and pole plant. They should be adequate with course inspection and line choices. They should be getting better at weight transfer, keep turn shape, gliding, aerodynamics, jumping and self-feedback, tip pressure at the start of the turn, and control pressure thru the whole turn.
