U14 athletes will complete against racers from western New York (Buffalo & Syracuse). The U14’s will race slalom, giant Slalom and super G. The race schedule will involve traveling to Buffalo for one weekend, Syracuse another, and a third race in the Rochester area. There will be more enhanced training opportunities as compared to younger age groups.
All Athletes MUST participate in the Super G camps, both days, at Hunt Hollow in order to be considered for states competition. SG skis are NOT required, but there is a minimum length requirement for GS skis. Requirements are posted on the USSA ski length Matrix. Athletes will need SL and GS skis. They will also need a race approved helmet and Slalom gear. Athletes that don’t make the state team can go to Kaddahar if they choose.
