Youth Programmes

The Cardrona Alpine Ski Team Youth programmes are for kids in the U14 & U16 age groups. We have part & full time programmes available to suit every athlete’s ski racing goals & needs.

2017 Age Groups

U14 – born in 2004/2005
U16 – born in 2002/2003


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

Part time ski race programmes are for Youth 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 skill level & needs.
