For a deposit on winter 2019/20 alpine competitive program fees the SSWSC alpine athlete can take part in directed and supervised summer strength and conditioning. These programs are designed to give ski racers off-season guidance and coaching in off-snow preparation for winter training, as well as establishing a strong strength and conditioning base for higher intensity training in the fall. Strong and well-conditioned ski racers are able to maintain their technique and a fast racing line in progressively more difficult situations, recover more quickly from long on-snow training and competition days, and decrease the chance of injury. Coaching will focus on proper movement patterns emphasizing a full range of motion. Coaches will work with athletes participating in summer sports to manage their training load while providing appropriate preparation for ski racing. The program will accommodate family vacation. It will be creative, fun, difficult, diverse and build towards the athlete’s racing goals for next season.
SSWSC members who are SSHS students: If you are going to be a sophomore, junior or senior next year, this program may be counted toward PE credit. You must enroll in this program and sign up for the Summer PE option through your SSWSC account. Do not sign up for the class through the high school.
