program description

Our Interclub program is perfect for kids who are eager to explore ski racing. Participants will focus on developing proper racing techniques through instructed free skiing and an introduction to gate training. While this program requires more time commitment than the Devo program, it still emphasizes the importance of proper technique and skiing fundamentals. With a greater emphasis on drills, periodic gate training, and racing, athletes in this program will have the chance to compete in a regional racing circuit alongside other member mountains. Although most activities take place at Bousquet, families should be prepared to bring their children to a few races held at other mountains.

Training:

  • Training is held on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) starting in early to mid-December, weather permitting.
  • The coaching approach is based on USSA’s Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD), focusing on long-term success and enjoyment in the sport.
  • Coaches have tailored progression plans to maximize athletes’ long-term potential and enjoyment.
  • Bousquet Race Team takes a holistic approach to training, including approximately:
    • 45-60% directed free skiing
    • 20% drill-based training
    • 10-25% gate training
    • 10% competition simulation

*Membership:

At the Interclub level competition and memberships are slightly more nuanced than other programs. Depending on one’s skiing ability coaches will recommend on a week-to-week basis whether athletes should participate in competitions. While this choice is ultimately up to parents and the athlete, we ask that you take coaches recommendations seriously. If competitions are recommended, you will be required to have a current USSS “alpine competitors” membership (U.S. Ski and Snowboard) and TSASRA (Tri-State Alpine Ski Racing Association) membership.

When registering with USSS, you must designate Bousquet Race Team as your affiliate program. Your Tri-State membership will be processed automatically once you have designated your Club.

Although she enjoys the warm weather over the cold, she is excited to appreciate the winter beauty on a whole other level and brush up on her skiing skills!

When Amanda is not working, she thoroughly enjoys spending time with her family (mainly her 5 nephews and 1 sweet little niece 😊)
