U14 Training Philosophy & Training Opportunities


As we work with the U14 alpine racers, our goal is to continue the life- long love of skiing through focused small group student-athlete development. We strive to provide every student-athlete with the opportunity to be the best that they can be.  Our athletes participate in an age specific program designed for the maturing alpine skier to establish skills on and off the hill. The program is built on creating adaptability, fundamentals, and the education of ski racing.  We base the daily and weekly schedule on providing the optimum experience socially, academically, and athletically.  Most importantly we know that this age group needs rest and recovery and those are built into the schedule.

U14 athletes compete in the MARA Alpine Children’s calendar which is supported by and is a member of USSA. Athletes race all over Maine and venture into other New England states for competitive experiences. Athletes will train and compete in SL, GS, and SG throughout the season. Summer and fall on-snow camps allow the athletes to make gains in the preparation phase of the year before the competition season begins.
