Summer Ski Planning!

SWSC,

The 2018/19 Season is coming to an end. It's been an amazing season and one that had highlights for all athletes. Congrats to everyone in SWSC on all their hard work and dedication!

Don't let all the hard work end in March! Lots of improvements can be made in a short time over the summer and fall. Time on snow matters with athlete development and supplemental skiing and training is a great way to continue the progress made over the winter. A short 2 week Summer training camp can be as much skiing as a month of skiing in the winter and incredibly productive!

U.S. Elite Camps is the preferred summer ski camp for SWSC. SWSC coaches, as well as additional full time coaches work with the athletes in a fun summer environment to offer the additional training needed off season. No racing, no pressure, just athlete skill development. U10's through U19's and Masters can all benefit from addition ski time. U.S. Elite Camps uses only professional, experienced coaches for all camps. There are no kid/athlete 'coaches' at these camps, only Professionals. The camp also brings a house mom/nurse to care for the younger ones and offer 24hr care!!

There are three off season ski training camps offered. Go to the Camp Website for more information on the camps. www.uselitecamps.com

Mt Hood, Oregon. 2 sessions on a summer Glacier!
           June 25-July 5       ~8 Days on snow.   (*U12's thru U19's)
           June 25-July 10    ~12 Days on snow. (*U12's thru U19's)

Saas-Fee, Switzerland.  A European Training Experience
           July 23-Aug 6        ~11 days on snow. (*U14's thru U19's)

Copper Thanksgiving Camp.  A fall Race Prep Camp on the best early season training site in the USA!
           November 24-29   ~6 days on snow.  (*U10's thru U19's). Travel Days: Nov. 23 & 30

It is unbelievable that the last weekend for this season’s program is upon us.  We had a lot of fun and enjoyed watching the U10s improved their skiing skills and racing tactics.  We look forward to the first year U10s return next season, and we wish the second year U10s the best, as they head well prepared for U12s.  On behalf of the U10 coaching staff, thank you for your support and for your generosity.  The Banquet was very fun.

Congratulations to all that participated in the last Soldeu World Cup, and to France for the final win.  We captured each run per athlete on video.  Please click on the Sprongo link: https://sprongo.com/team/68183/playlists
