Freeride 12-14 Team
2023-24 12-14 Freeride Team:
The SBSEF Freeride 12-14 Team Program is geared towards fundamental skill development for athletes skiing at a high level on all-terrain at Alta and Snowbird, as well as in Regional IFSA Sanctioned Competitions. This program serves as a pipeline to the Alta/Bird 15-18 program and is perfect for athletes who have a desire to improve their big mountain skiing, get more experience skiing challenging terrain, want more air awareness, and who wish to improve their ability in competitions. The 12-14 Team has flexibility for athletes to compete a lot, or compete for a little, depending on the athlete’s goals; but as a whole, the team is competition-centered. This is a program that will challenge and inspire athletes to improve their skiing, and love spending time in the mountains.
The coaching focus will include:
- goal-oriented training
- responsible decision making with regard to ability
- comfort in all-mountain terrain
- composure in a variety of conditions
- finding/ creating an individual style
- competition strategy
