A Racing Program for 14 to 15 Year Olds
The U16 program is designed for the junior skier who wants to continue their athletic development. The program is geared toward developing skiing as a lifetime skill and introducing the athlete to more advanced levels of competition.
U16 athletes train from 2 to 5 days a week, are assisted in their pre-season workout program, and race in Evergreen Cup and NW Cup (U16 Junior Championships Qualifiers) races. U16 coaches help manage each athlete’s race and travel schedules. MRST coaches travel to divisional, regional, and when possible, national races to provide support and help athletes achieve their personal best results.
