USSA YOUTH SKI LEAGUE
For ages 6-13 – (YOB 2007-2014)
The YSL team is an introduction to ski racing, providing training in fundamentals and a basic understanding of the rules of the sport. YSL athletes will train on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. It is designed to allow the athlete to pursue other interests and is the entry program if the athlete is not yet at the required skill or commitment level that the USSA Team programs require. Athletes will have access to the YSL (Youth Ski League) race series, with a goal to advance to the full-time USSA Age Class programs if desired.
The program spans the ages of U8-U14 (6-13 years old), emphasizing fundamental skill development through drills, all-mountain freeskiing, drill courses and gate training, providing approximately 30% of their training time in gates.
A USSA Youth Membership is required for athletes to race in YSL events. Please visit my.usskiandsnowboard to complete your USSA membership.
