Stratton Winter Sports Club Blogs: Your source for FUN this winter!

Ages 9-16 | B-Competition Team
Times: 8:30am to 3pm (Lunch Break 11:30am to 12:30pm)

This program builds on the skills learned in the Allegro program and begins to specialize training orientated toward mogul competition. Participating athletes will be expected to come prepared to daily sessions ready to train, as they develop air awareness on more difficult jumps and ski moguls with more power and speed. Athletes will ski with USSA certified coaches, many whom have individually participated at high levels of mogul competition. Coaching staff will have a presence at scheduled Central Region competitions and Divisional Championships in the Eastern Qualifier Series (EQS) sanctioned events put on by Eastern Division of the United States Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA). On –hill performance and associated goals will be evaluated throughout the winter season. USSA Competitor License is required for participation in any USSA event. Event registration fees are not included. Additional travel fees may be required.

This weekend we will have some great mogul skiing over on Beeline and World Cup. This will be a chance for athletes to revisit all the drills we have been doing throughout the season and to really see some progression in our mogul skiing! We are looking forward to it!

Lastly, I would like to give a HUGE shoutout to all of our B team athletes who competed last weekend in the Rod Baird Mogul Challenge here at Stratton!. Finn, Charlie, Tyler, Henry, Nora, Ava, Lexi and Carmen represented our B Team well. All 8 of the athletes really held their own against the A’s and produced some great results. We even had Charlie and Henry make it into the 2nd round of Duals, way to go!!!!

I hope everyone travels up safely this weekend!!
