U19 & PG Programs
U19 athletes are full-time MMWA high school athletes who typically have been skiing and racing for years. The goals of these athletes range from Olympic and National Team ambitions to skiing collegiately, and all have an underlying desire to improving their rankings. Athletes typically are “on-snow” training and racing six days per week. The program provides high level technical coaching in SL, GS and SG with low athlete to coach ratios. Depending upon desire, Downhill (DH) is introduced. Strength training and video analysis are integral pieces of the program. U19s participate in multi-state USSA and FIS race series. VARA and USSA licenses are required; FIS licenses are required for entry into FIS races. The program runs from mid November to late March/early April.
The MMSC PG Program provides elite alpine athletes with the goals and qualifications to be named to a national or a NCAA Division I team with an additional year of concentrated training and competition. This additional year of focused participation enables improved athletic skills, continued accomplishment and physical development, and supports the elite athlete in reaching his or her competitive potential. Consideration for acceptance to the program is given to male and female alpine athletes who have completed high school and have the qualifications for consideration for a national or collegiate ski team. Typically, athletes are racing at the FIS Eastern Cup or NorAm level.
