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.
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. Historically, the Quechee Ski Team has sent several racers to States every year and they have performed admirably. The U14 racers will be training off-site at partner mountains at the coaches discretion to get exposure to more difficult racing terrain.
Equipment: Here is a link to a pdf of the 2018-2019 Equipment Requirements.
Big Mountain Training: This summer we reached out to the U16/19 families to gauge interest in training at other other locations. The plan is to build a big mountain training day into the training schedule every week or two. Shahen and Bernard will create a schedule (as always, subject to adjustment) and be in touch with that group in December.
If you have any questions please contact Bernard at [email protected]
Program fee: $795.00. 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.
As soon as the VARA Race Schedule is finalized we will include it here.
