GSC, junior training 2019
Date Posted: 13.39hrs on Thu 22 Nov 18
Glencoe Skiers,

Excited to launch the Glencoe Ski Club junior training programme for winter 2019. The new committee have been working hard behind the scenes to pull it all together.

If you are interested to find out more please email and we can email you a copy of our parents handbook along with full details of how to sign up.

For 2019 we have stuck with the usual format of 5x weekend blocks. The intention is to commence on the weekend of 12th/13th January 2019. Plans are, as ever, at the mercy of the snow and weather gods.

Cost for the 5 week block will be

Sat or Sun - £75. (5 days training)
Sat and Sun - £120 (10 days training)

We think this is good value and as cheap as we can offer. Glencoe Mountain Resort (i.e White Corries!) is a unique ski area with some interesting terrain and wild weather. The training is very much shaped and inspired by the environment we operate in. At Glencoe skiers often need to adapt to the mountain!

Our aim is to develop young skiers into lifelong enthusiasts who will continue skiing as a sport / passion into their adult years. Over the years we had several club members compete at a very high level (national squads and even winter Olympics) however participation remains the most important factor.

We shall run some race training: however, the emphasis will primarily be on the “training” aspect and becoming better all-round skiers. Going fast and turning where the gates dictate is fantastic training for all disciplines of skiing – however the weather is not always suitable for setting courses.

Sometimes the kids will be better served by getting miles under their feet and going skiing. Hanging about at the top of a cold windy race course is a sure way to put kids off skiing!

Booking for block 1 is now open. Please sign up by no later than 20th December to secure a space in the classes.

Ski u soon / fingers crossed for snow.
