U16 Born 2005 and 2006
This is the first year the athletes compete as “scored” competitors. Athletes are able to earn USSS seed points based on race results and are seeded in start lists based on points rankings. Early season focuses on fundamental ski techniques through structured free skiing. With regional qualifying races, the focus quickly shifts to race tactics and gate training. Majority of training is spent in gates, but structured free skiing sessions are continued throughout the season.
This season the U16 will participate with the U19 racers of the East and Northeast. From States, racers are able to qualify for the PARA State Team and Eastern Regional Events. ALL POST SEASON IS DEPENDENT ON RULES IMPOSED DUE TO COVID.
This program is designed for skiers age 14 and 15 who are interested in advanced racing techniques and plan to enter sanctioned races in Pennsylvania. Previous race training is not required but recommended.
