Junior Race Series




The Goal

This race series will provide a low-cost racing opportunity for both experienced and new racers.  Additionally, it will give kids a chance to meet others with the same interests.  The emphasis is on introducing the fun of ski racing to our youth.

The Concept

Racers will meet at 5 PM on Friday, January 7, for the first session.  The race committee will organize teams of equal ability based upon recent handicaps (if available).  Teams will include racers from all age groups.  During this first session participants will register, receive instruction, get to practice in a race course, and take two, timed NASTAR runs.  Subsequent sessions are from 5:30-7:00 PM January 14, 21, and 28, all Fridays.

Each racer and coach will take two NASTAR runs on these days.  Team results will be an average of each participant’s best run.  Racers missing a day will have their original seeding handicap included in their team’s daily results, without penalty.


Don’t miss out on the fun just because you can’t make every session.

The Coaches

The coaches are volunteers.  All of them are either local racing stand-outs or certified junior coaches for area teams.  Don’t forget to thank them!

The Awards

Members of the first place team will receive individual medals.  There will also be awards for lowest handicap and most improved racer in each gender.
