U10 Ski and Jump

All SSWSC programs are subject to change due to Covid-19. Program start and end dates, times, schedules, and structure may be adjusted. If necessary, programs may be interrupted or cancelled. We will communicate any changes to all families who have registered.

U10 Ski and Jump (ages 8-10)

This crossover program offers a unique training opportunity available only in a place like Steamboat. Skiers in the U10 Skiing program add one day of nordic jumping per week. Confidence, air awareness, balance and gliding skills are among the benefits to the alpine skier. Not to mention the fun factor of doing both programs! Participants may use alpine skis for jumping, or use nordic jumping skis/boots once they’re ready. Nordic equipment available to rent from the club for a nominal fee based on availability. Dryland training on Fridays has a jumping focus. Dryland will continue until alpine on-snow training begins late November and jumping in early December, depending on snow conditions. Participation in the Hitchens Brothers’ Wednesday Night Jump Series and Steamboat Cups is encouraged. Athletes interested in jumping on some or all Saturdays in place of alpine skiing may do so with advance communication with the coaches. Register by October 1 to ensure a place in this program.

Lodges: SSWSC will have a temperature cut-off of when we won’t have training due to the lack of indoor facilities to warm-up. As a club, we are not allowing use of lodges at Howelsen or Steamboat unless for emergency. We will know more about bathrooms, warming huts, tents, etc in the near future. Just know that if your child refuses to put on that extra layer, bring it and the coach will work on it. It is so important this year to make sure they are dressed appropriately. All kids will be expected to arrive to training, full ready to ski.

Drop-off/Pick-up: Within the times from above, we might shift 5-10 minutes to spread out congregating of groups. This year more than ever, you will need to be right on time!

Masks: All kids will be required to wear masks or face coverings. Knowing how kids love to chew on their neck gaiters, I recommend stocking up and putting a fresh one in their pocket!

Snacks: We will still stop for a mid-morning break, but it will be outside. Each kid should have a small hand sanitizer in their pocket
