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.
U14 racers accumulate points during the season based on where they place in each race (using the combined time from two runs). At the end of the season, the top 25 male and female racers in our council are invited to participate in the VARA State Championships. The U14 racers will be training off-site at partner mountains at the coach's discretion to get exposure to more difficult racing terrain.
Equipment: to be announced
