Skimeisters Alpine Racing Club
The U10 program is a program that focuses on forming the foundation and initiating the game of ski racing. Athletes learn the skier essentials and the basic rules of ski racing. With an increase in volume of our double day (Saturday and Sunday) program or our single day program (Saturday or Sunday), coaches instill a love of the sport by utilizing various race training environments.
Athletes focus on the slalom (SL) and giant slalom disciplines (GS) while still refining the carve through free skiing and play on skis. Coaches introduce the kinder kombi (KK) event in preparation for one KK race start per season. The focus of each day is rooted in fun while ensuring each athlete learns the Alpine Skier Responsibility Code.
Parents drop their athletes off with coaches in the morning, pick them up for lunch and drop them back off for their afternoon session.
