Developmental Program

The Developmental Program has been established to provide an opportunity for youth to experience all the benefits of practices and gate training without competing on the WIJARA race circuit.  This youth ski program is specially designed to take the beginner/intermediate skier to an expert level through the application of alpine racing skills. Training sessions are Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m., and focuses on the introduction and acquisition of essential skills that are necessary to develop a strong foundation for successful skiing.  Training sessions may be available on weekends subject to coaching availability and weather conditions.

 

Snowstar Ski Team

Skiers wanting to advance their skills to the next level and compete in racing may join the Snowstar Ski Team and compete on the WIJARA race circuit. Focus is on skiing skills and developing the foundation of ski racing fundamentals. These are the skills that truly allow for a life long love of the sport.  WIJARA races are usually held in northern Illinois, eastern Iowa and southern Wisconsin from January to March.  Training sessions are Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m.  Training sessions may be available on weekends subject to coaching availability and weather conditions.
