Shawnee Race & Development Team
The Shawnee Mountain Race Team is a comprehensive program for advanced skiers ages 9-18. Members of the team have been on our development team for at least 1 year unless they have transferred from other teams. The foremost goal of this program is to build a strong team spirit by helping each member reach his or her full potential in a team united effort. Discipline, motivation, and sportsmanship are just some of the values that team members take away from this program. Our Coaching staff philosophy is to develop the complete athlete, knowing that personal development is equally as important as skiing and racing skills. Training begins in December with all training being provided at Shawnee Mountain. Cost is $420.
Members of the J1-J5 racer program are required to have membership in USSA (United States Ski and Snowboard Assoc), and PARA (Pennsylvania Alpine Ski Assoc) to compete in sanctioned races.
The development team is the perfect opportunity for the young skier or snowboarder in your family to enroll in an fun yet extensive program of instruction. The development team is designed for children ages 5-15 who are able to ski/ride from top to bottom of the mountain. Children are placed in groups of other children with comparable ability. Skiing and riding skills are taught in a fun, active manner using many games, exercises and mileage. Parents will be amazed in the progress each child will make in their skiing ability. The entire program consists of 10 weekends; however, children may be enrolled in a 5 weekend session for those parents who are not sure of their children’s desire to complete the entire 10 weekend program. Training begins in January
