Holiday Race Camp: DECEMBER 17-20
Registration opens July 1st and closes October 1st.
GMVS is hosting a Holiday Race Camp for USSA and Alpine Canada registered U12 and U14 ski racers, December 17-20, 2017. Our focus will be to provide participants with a three day, high-volume training opportunity, focused on technical free skiing, and slalom and giant slalom drills and exercises.
Campers will lodge at the White Horse Inn at the base of Mount Ellen—GMVS’s primary training site. Breakfast will be served at the Inn, lunch at Mount Ellen cafeteria, and dinner at GMVS.
The daily schedule is packed with activities that will jumpstart the young ski racer’s season. Each day will have a technical free ski block, a break for lunch, and a gate training block on the famed Kelly Brush Race Area. After skiing, campers will go to the GMVS campus for physical conditioning and Functional Movement Screening (the FMS Test), video analysis, tuning, and tuning clinics in the Racing Performance Center (GMVS gym and tuning facility). Included in the HRC coaching staff is primarily made up of fulltime GMVS Academy coaches—many of whom are former national team coaches or athletes. Participants receive a written camp evaluation, focused on technical and tactical strengths and areas in need of improvement, and results of the FMS Testing.
It is important to apply early as our Holiday Race camp will be capped at forty athletes. For inquiries or questions, please contact Sally Utter, HRC Camp Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
