U10 is for individual racers aged 8-9 years old who express a strong interest in ski racing and are willing to explore options beyond the Nancy Greene program.
The primary focus of this program is on aquiring fundamental skiing skills, while introducing them to more specific ski racing techniques. The program is designed to inspire and challenge these young athletes, and motivate them to get the most out of their training. Athletes learn age appropriate slalom and giant slalom skills to develop their racing and skiing proficiency. CFSC professional coaches will also offer advice on conditioning, healthy living, pre-race mental preparation, and ski tuning, while fostering a team spirit within the athlete groups.
Our program is flexible and can accommodate athletes across various levels of commitment to the sport. In addition to our core 14 week racing module, racers can choose to participate in a variety of optional enhanced training programs: the conditioning camp in the sping/summer, pre-season off-snow conditioning in the fall, pre-season camp in the late fall and extra training and specialty camps during the skiing season. We strongly recommend using several of the enhanced training opportunities for those committed to the alpine skiing as their primary sport. See enhanced training for a full list of options and prices.
