Junior Development Program
Scroll down to the bottom of this page for additional program and scholarship information.
Junior Development (U16 – U21) program is for athletes ages 14 to 20 (as of December 31st) who are focused on Alpine ski racing. Instruction emphasizes strengthening fundamentals and developing racing techniques and tactics.
Included in the base program fee: Training on Saturday and Sunday, rental of a team jacket for the season, and the Christmas Camp.
Participation in competitions is expected. Athletes who wish to participate in U.S. Ski & Snowboard-sanctioned ski races must be a Competitor member of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership, race fees, lift tickets, lodging, and transportation costs related to races are not covered by the program fee.
The head coaches of each program are responsible for posting and updating training schedules to each program’s respective TeamReach group.
We feel your pain. We’re helped immensely by our sponsors, and we do our best to keep our overhead low in order to keep program prices in check. Nevertheless, program fees, equipment, and travel conspire to make skiing and ski racing expensive.
To make it less so, take advantage of early season program pricing and multi-program purchase discounts. Installment payment plans may be available on certain transactions.
Purchase used equipment via Montana Ski Racing Classified on Facebook and area ski swaps. (Bridger Ski Foundation hosts a great swap every Fall in Bozeman.) Last, but not least, make an application for a scholarship administered by Women in Action.
