Training Plan: March 11-13
As you know, we have the state championships at Burke on Saturday (GS)/Sunday (SL) for the girls (note new schedule) and Sunday (SL) /Monday (GS) for Boys. You can register through the end of the week - boys girls . Note you'll have to register for both if you are only going to do one, and then request a refund.
For those not going to Burke, Liam and Frank are coordinating training at our home hill. There will definitely be training (SL on T-bar) on Saturday AM. I recommend all boys going to Burke train only in the AM, and then stop skiing in the PM to be well rested for the next day's race.
For those not going to Burke on Sunday, please have your child free ski on SL skis.
General U14 information
Ages: 12 and 13
The U14 program is intended for 12 to 13-year-old racers with the desire and ability to compete at a higher level. U14 racers must commit to a rigorous race schedule (up to 9 races/events), be developmentally ready to learn multiple disciplines (GS, Slalom, Super G), and have the ability to compete on far more challenging trails and courses. Regular training is from 9-11 am and 12-2 pm on Saturday and Sunday. There is also an option to train on Friday afternoons from 2:30 to 4 pm.
The U14 racers may at times be training off-site at partner mountains at the coach's discretion to get exposure to more difficult racing terrain.
Required equipment is outlined in the U14 Race/Technical packet below.

Program fee: $895.00. Racers must purchase a Quechee Ski Hill season pass (available at the Quechee Club) or you may purchase a daily ticket at the ticket booth. Also, each racer must join USSA and VARA.
