Intro to Team Summit Colorado

Intro to Team Summit Colorado
6-11 yrs old (Foundation Skills)
Summit Foundation Cup Series

This is where the fun begins!  For the athlete new to Team Summit or the returning athlete looking to develop their skills in a one day program, this Program is designed for the athletes to begin their path in developing as a competitive skier or rider.   During the early stages of any sport, it is important to lay a foundation of fundamental skills, allow versatility, and have a GREAT time doing it.  We offer this program for your athlete to get a strong start in the world of competitive snow sports.  Even if your child has chosen which sport they would like to participate in, the skills addressed in this program are global and required in all of the disciplines Team Summit Colorado has to offer.

In this 15 week program, the child will develop  fundamental stance and balance skills, turning and carving skills (GS gates), Terrain skills (including moguls, trees and off-piste), create versatility (big mountain along with park and pipe).  These are the skills required to create a well rounded skier or rider.  A well rounded athlete has the highest potential to lead the competition and be a life time participant in the sport!

These athletes will participate in the Team Summit hosted “Summit Foundation Cup Series”.  Each one of these events explores different types of events such as, GS race, Moguls, Big Mountain, and Slope style, half pipe, and skier cross.  This will give the athlete experience in competing in a variety of low pressure events.

Groups are divided thoughtfully by age and ability. With a low athlete to coach ratio, each athlete receives ample coaching, personal attention, and supervision.
