U10 Race

Birth Years: 2012 - 2013

About

Our U10 group is the youngest group representing Labrador Mountain in the Central Council. The main focus at this level is the development of technical skills and understand of skiing as a lifetime activity, as well as a sport. Our goal with this age group is to increase the time on snow exploring the terrain of the mountain and have fun, while developing the skills to further their skiing ability. We will be accomplishing this goal through free skiing and drills during training time, as well as introducing racing technique through gate training during the scheduled practices times. The U10 athletes train as a group with the U12 athletes on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesday and Thursday nights. The group meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 PM to 8:00pm, all day Saturday starting at 9:00 AM and ending at 2:30 PM with a lunch break from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM, and Sunday's with no races follow the same schedule as Saturday training. In addition to evening and weekend training throughout the season, the U10 program also includes a five day camp between Christmas and New Years. During the camp, the training schedule will be the same as a normal Saturday/Sunday training day.

The U10 group will have the option of participating in the Central New York Council races during the season. This Council includes Labrador, Song, Skaneateles, and Greek Peak. There are four major Central Council races every year, as well as other races in the area. Races that are sanctioned by USSA and NYSSRA are held on Saturdays and Sundays from January to mid-February. All U10/U12 athletes must join both USSA and NYSSRA to be eligible for participation in these events. Although this is a race group, racing is not a requirement for participation. The coaching staff recognizes that this sport is challenging and can be intimidating for young participants. We will do our best to make both parents and athlete comfortable with whatever level of participation they choose.

The coaches for this group are all USSA Certified and have both high school and college race experience. They are Labrador Mountain Ski Club alumni and have teaching experience and experience working with children.
