FIS TEAM

FIS TEAM PROGRAM (16-20YO)

Our FIS Program is designed for 16YO and older athletes who are committed to a high level of excellence within a structured USSA and FIS program.  Schedule will focus on FIS schedule and will require travel and participation in mid-week events. On-snow training is available 5 days per week, Wednesday thru Sunday

The team races in the PNSA and beyond with 60% or more of the time spent in gate training coupled with all-mountain free-skiing and drills as well as speed training.  All athletes will have the opportunity of racing out of division and have the opportunity for an international race experience.  All athletes will have race schedules designed in accordance with point profiles and race goals.  All athletes are expected to participate in our physical conditioning program to maximize athletic potential.  This program is offered through Twist Sports Conditioning or a Club designed Dryland program. The program will be available throughout the year and athletes are expected to participate. 

Goal setting will be done with each athlete and will be periodically reviewed.  Sports psychology and nutritional seminars will be presented on a regular basis.  Our FIS athletes are expected to uphold the intrinsic values of the Cascade Winter Sports Club which are; good sportsmanship, responsibility, commitment, organization, tenacity, honesty and integrity.
 

Athletes will train with their coaches and other groups from the Ski Team every Wednesday thru Friday night at Ski Bowl, with an emphasis on skiing fundamentals but with more directed gate training techniques and tactics.  Weekend training will occur at both Timberline and Ski Bowl. Athletes must participate in 75% of scheduled events.  

Program fee includes a CWSC membership.

FIS Program will only accept 12 athletes


Current FIS level athletes should sign up under the U16 full time program link.  After individual evaluation regarding points/starts/training schedule an additional fee will be assessed to cover coaching/travel costs rather than assess a blanket fee which may or may not accurately reflect the athletes needs.
