U8/U10 Program

The U8/U10 Entry Level program is aimed at providing athletes aged 6 to 9 years old the ‘FUNdamentals’ of skiing as defined in the ACA LTSD Phases of Skier Essentials. In coordination with the ACA Snow Stars Program focusing on skill levels 2, 3, and 4, the AOA program is intended to foster the development of the athlete. U10 competition events are to be focused on the development of ski racing skills while continuing to promote the development of overall skiing skills. Normal competition days will pair a traditional “RACE” event, (i.e. SL/GS/Kombi) with a skills festival. These additions should foster the development of overall skills while maintaining participant enjoyment, focusing on the FUN of competition.  U8 age athletes as young as 5-6 can participate in ACA sanctioned programs in the U8 age programming.
