The primary goals of the SSWSC Alpine Competitive Programs are to cultivate a life-long passion for the sport of skiing; to develop the technical and tactical skill to achieve the goals of the individual skier while building life skills (focus, organization, timeliness, self-control, respect of rules and others, discipline in action, etc.)
Alpine Competitive Programs will emphasize skill development through free skiing, drills and gates in a variety of winter environments while emphasizing the tactical part of ski racing. This exposure and mileage in and out of gates becomes the foundation for all future development and success as an alpine ski racer. We define success at each age grouping by increased individual improvement and individual success. The younger age groups focus on fun and the development of basic fundamental athletic skills, strength, technique and stamina. In the U14 and older programs athletes begin to optimize specific sport skills and fitness toward competing in their sport.
