Junior Programmes

The Cardrona Alpine Ski Team Junior programmes are for kids in the U6 to U12 age groups. If you’ve got a young skier looking to get into ski racing or develop their skills, we have a programme to suit them!

2017 Age Groups

U6 – born in 2012 or later
U8 – born in 2010/2011
U10 – born in 2008/2009
U12 – born in 2006/2007


Full time ski race programmes are for Junior level ski racers who can commit to a whole season of training, 5 days a week. In the Junior level, this is for U12 & U10 athletes who aim to become competitive ski racers.

Part time ski race programmes are for Junior racers looking to develop their skills, potentially trying to fit around their school commitments. We have various part time programme options depending on each athlete’s age, skill level & needs.
