The Masters Racing program is for the Master racer who wants to continue their ski training and racing in a weekend adult program. Some of the participants compete in the New England Masters race series, while others just love to ski fast and train lots of gates. The training on varied terrain with dedicated program coaches will give an advantage to the master aged athlete who wants to continue to develop their technical and tactical skills. Typical equipment needs include: FIS approved GS Helmet (no GS ‘soft ears’), a GS suit, slalom protection gear, a back protector, and properly sized SL and GS skis. Participants are encouraged to become members of the United States Ski Association (USSA).

Requirements: USSA Masters Membership, FIS Approved GS Helmet (no ‘soft ears’)
Times: 8:30am to 2:30pm (Lunch Break 11:30am to 12:30pm)

The Master-Racing program also offers a Friday-Sunday (Masters + Friday) program for those Masters racers looking for more skiing and training. The Friday program runs from 9:00am-2:30pm on all non-holidays.

Thank You SWSC!

Thank You SWSC,
 
The 2018/19 SWSC season has come to a close and what an amazing last weekend we had! Saturday we were treated with a late season powder day and Sunday we had bluebird skies for the Annual SWSC Club Championship race! Congratulations to Skye Greenberg (U14) and Declan McNamara (U19) on their 2019 Club Champion titles!
 
The 2018/19 season was an amazing one! The club was the biggest we've ever seen (305 athletes) and SWSC had an amazing group of coaches, crew, parents, and athletes. We hosted 13 races, 2 VARA projects, a massive Skating party, and a huge awards banquet. We added a very successful SWSC Parent Education Series, the U14 Vermont State Championships event, the Eastern Masters Championships, and the very important #Shred4Nate race in memory of Nathan Carreira. 
 
We couldn't have done all of this without a great parent group and lots of parent volunteers! We also couldn't have done all of this without our amazing SWSC coaches, timing crew, and event crew! This is a truly professional and dedicated team that make sure things are perfect everyday for the athletes. I make sure to thank them every day for their commitment and hard work and I hope you're all doing the same!! We are very lucky to have the team we do and their love for SWSC is why the athletes have fun and learn every weekend and why we are so successful. 
 
There's a lot of wrapping up to do over the next few weeks/months and some athletes are still racing. We already are in the planning stages for 2019/20 and the head coaches had a great end of year round table meeting to review and build the new program. We have some great new projects in the works and we are excited to announce them!
 
There's a lot happening during the off season as well. We have lots of athletes joining the Mt Hood and Saas-Fee training Camps over the summer, as well as athletes already registering for the Fall Copper Thanksgiving Camp in November. Off Season camps are a great way to build skills in a non-competitive environment with professional coaches! All these camps sell out, so let me know if you're interested! More skiing = more progress
 
We are also working on a new fall conditioning plan that will take place in the NYC region. Our Fall Fitness sessions are great and it's fun to get out and train on Stratton Mountain, but we want to get MORE kids involved! This will be a great way to get the team together and get ready for the winter!
 
Don't forget to order your team clothing for 2019/20!! The orders are due TODAY March 25! Contact Trisha Kramer with questions. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
 
It's been an amazing season and I can't thank everyone enough for all your commitment to SWSC!! A BIG "thanks" to Stratton Resort and the Stratton Ski & Board Club for their commitment to SWSC! We couldn't have done it without your support! Please let me know if you're up over the next few weekends, it would be great to see you all!
 
Thank You for an incredible year SWSC!!

Summer Ski Planning!

SWSC,

The 2018/19 Season is coming to an end. It's been an amazing season and one that had highlights for all athletes. Congrats to everyone in SWSC on all their hard work and dedication!

Don't let all the hard work end in March! Lots of improvements can be made in a short time over the summer and fall. Time on snow matters with athlete development and supplemental skiing and training is a great way to continue the progress made over the winter. A short 2 week Summer training camp can be as much skiing as a month of skiing in the winter and incredibly productive!

U.S. Elite Camps is the preferred summer ski camp for SWSC. SWSC coaches, as well as additional full time coaches work with the athletes in a fun summer environment to offer the additional training needed off season. No racing, no pressure, just athlete skill development. U10's through U19's and Masters can all benefit from addition ski time. U.S. Elite Camps uses only professional, experienced coaches for all camps. There are no kid/athlete 'coaches' at these camps, only Professionals. The camp also brings a house mom/nurse to care for the younger ones and offer 24hr care!!

There are three off season ski training camps offered. Go to the Camp Website for more information on the camps. www.uselitecamps.com

Mt Hood, Oregon. 2 sessions on a summer Glacier!
           June 25-July 5       ~8 Days on snow.   (*U12's thru U19's)
           June 25-July 10    ~12 Days on snow. (*U12's thru U19's)

Saas-Fee, Switzerland.  A European Training Experience
           July 23-Aug 6        ~11 days on snow. (*U14's thru U19's)

Copper Thanksgiving Camp.  A fall Race Prep Camp on the best early season training site in the USA!
           November 24-29   ~6 days on snow.  (*U10's thru U19's). Travel Days: Nov. 23 & 30

Notes:
Copper and Mt Hood have Day camper and Boarding Camper Options.
*Age classes based on 2019/2020 US Ski & Snowboard age classes.

In the works....

Master Copper Training Camp.  A Masters training camp to help jump start the year!
           November 11-15**    ~5 days on snow. **Dates are tentative. 

There are also additional adventures for those interested.

U.S. Elite Adventures offers two exciting camps for kids AND adults!

Cycle in Riccione Italy! This adult camp is for those parents looking to go and pedal around Italy and enjoy the Adriatic coast line! No experience needed! We supply guides, bikes (if needed), transportation, etc!

Youth Leadership Hiking Camp in Chamonix France! This leadership camp follows a curriculum to help teach leadership skills while hiking in the Alps of France, Switzerland and Italy! An amazing opportunity for kids to learn and adventure!


Get fired up for some great summer skiing and adventures!! Check it out!
