MSSRT 2019-2020 U14 Team (Ages 12-13)
Click on the Registration button at the bottom of this page to begin the Registration process
The MSSRT U14 program is for 12-13 year olds who want to become expert all mountain skiers and develop/improve their alpine ski racing skills. Our U14 program refines fundamental skills sets and develops race skills and tactics through the use of directed free skiing, drills, drills with aid, and gate training. The U14 program introduces discipline specific (SL/GS/SG) race skills and tactics. The program offers training 5 days per week (Sat, Sun, Wed Night, Thursday Night, Friday or Friday Night.) The U14 program prepares and develops athletes for an easy transition to our U16 program and higher levels of racing (Northwest Cups)
Athletes should be able to ski all terrain with parallel turns
Each athlete needs at least one pair of Slalom and Giant Slalom race skis. Many athletes choose to purchase a pair of Super G skis as well but this is not necessary. Powder skis and twin tips will inhibit skill development and are not recommended. FIS approved helmets, goggles, poles and shin guards are required. Back Protectors are required for Super G, and a chin bar or mouth guard is required for slalom. Boots are the most important component of your equipment and are many times the primary constraint to skill development. It is very important that the athlete can flex the boots easily. Please contact your head coach or myself prior to purchasing new boots. Coaches and staff are available to answer equipment questions.
