DEVO TEAM 2019/2020

(For alpine skiers ages 7-13 )

The PRC Development Team is a Saturday/Sunday program that provides training for athletes who want to develop their skiing skills beyond the Buddy Werner program or for those who feel that they are not yet ready to participate in a USSA race program.    Team members may also choose to attend the Buddy Werner State Race.

The PRC Development Team will emphasize fundamental ski development through drills, all mountain free-skiing and drill courses; about 30% of the on hill training time will be in gates to prepare for the Buddy Werner State Race.

Team members must be a Level 6 skier to enter the PRC Development Team.  A Level 6 skier is a parallel skier who is able to ski intermediate terrain comfortably, in a wide track parallel.  Intermediate terrain is considered to be all BLUE trails on Powderhorn Mountain Resort.

This program will strive to have an ideal coach-to-athlete ratio of 8:1.  Coaches will develop a passion for skiing by increased free-ski mileage on Powderhorn Mountain with a focus on fun, friends, and skill improvement.  The increased exposure to organized racing will also prepare members of this team to advance to a more competitive USSA Age Class racing program with PRC.

Parental Volunteer Duties and Responsibilities are still applicable for DEVO families.
